Description

This is a nginx module that reads HTTP POST and PUT request body encoded in "application/x-www-form-urlencoded", and parse the arguments in request body into nginx variables.

This module depends on the ngx_devel_kit(NDK) module.

Installation

   Get the nginx source code from nginx.net (http://nginx.net/).
   Get the ngx_devel_kit source code from (http://github.com/simpl-it/ngx_devel_kit)
   Unpack the source code and build nginx with this module.
    $ wget 'http://sysoev.ru/nginx/nginx-0.8.28.tar.gz'
    $ tar -xzvf nginx-0.8.28.tar.gz
    $ cd nginx-0.8.28/
 
    $ git-clone http://github.com/simpl-it/ngx_devel_kit.git
    $ git-clone http://github.com/calio/form-input-nginx-module.git
 
    $ ./configure --add-module=/somepath/form-input-nginx-module --add-module=/somepath/ngx_devel_kit
    $ make -j2
    $ make install

Usage

   set_form_input $variable;
   set_form_input $variable argument;
   set_form_input_multi $variable;
   set_form_input_multi $variable argument;

example:

    #nginx.conf
 
    location /foo {
         set_form_input $data;    # read "data" field into $data
         set_form_input $foo foo; # read "foo" field into $foo
    }
    location /bar {
         set_form_input_multi $data; # read all "data" field into $data
         set_form_input_multi $foo data; # read all "data" field into $foo
         array_join ' ' $data; # now $data is a string
         array_join ' ' $foo;  # now $foo is a string
    }
