            How to get around previously declared json body-parser in Nodebb?
            Asked 2020-Feb-05 at 22:23

            I am writing a private plugin for nodebb (open forum software). In the nodebb's webserver.js file there is a line that seems to be hogging all incoming json data.


            I am trying to convert all incoming json data for one of my end-points into raw data. However the challenge is I cannot remove or modify the line above.

            The following code works ONLY if I temporarily remove the line above.



            Answered 2020-Feb-05 at 01:47

            The bodyParser.json() middleware does the following:

            1. Check the response type of an incoming request to see if it is application/json.
            2. If it is that type, then read the body from the incoming stream to get all the data from the stream.
            3. When it has all the data from the stream, parse it as JSON and put the result into req.body so follow-on request handlers can access the already-read and already-parsed data there.

            Because it reads the data from the stream, there is no longer any more data in the stream. Unless it saves the raw data somewhere (I haven't looked to see if it does), then the original RAW data is gone - it's been read from the stream already. This is why you can't have multiple different middleware all trying to process the same request body. Whichever one goes first reads the data from the incoming stream and then the original data is no longer there in the stream.

            To help you find a solution, we need to know what end-problem you're really trying to solve? You will not be able to have two middlewares both looking for the same content-type and both reading the request body. You could replace bodyParser.json() that does both what it does now and does something else for your purpose in the same middleware, but not in separate middleware.
