@webr3 No Content-Length header in XHR says the spec ( @zemanta, you return HTTP 411 if it isn’t included. What now?

via Echofon in reply to webr3

@webr3 A q. wrt. xhr: on line 270 of XMLHttpRequest.js you exclude “content-length” from allowed headers. Why? req. content-length.

via Echofon in reply to webr3

@webr3 (Sorry, catching up only now, weekend = family quality time) Same impression here, o3-fastxml seems like the most advanced lib.

via Echofon in reply to webr3

Instead of (@)rev use (@)rel instead, w/ an opposite term (e.g., instead of rev=”made”, use rel=”author”): Good!

via Echofon

Wrote @webr3 in I didn’t realize that (@)rev was entirely obsolete & mustn’t be used by

@webr3 Wow. Literally all libs from ? If so, bummer! What’s the most advanced XML lib then? Can the feature be added?

via Echofon in reply to webr3

@webr3 Didn’t check namespaces yet, sorry. Did you consider adding xhr.responseXML to your xhr implementation using e.g. node-o3-fastxml?

via Echofon in reply to webr3

@cramforce Have to use XML from an academic “legacy” Web service. Good thing is: after last nite’s code session I offer the service w/ JSON.

via Echofon in reply to cramforce

@elazar @webr3 Yepp, exactly. Nothing to add than a “+1”.

via Echofon in reply to webr3

@cramforce Main issue for a node.JS newbie: find, e.g., /the/ XML lib or /the/ XHR lib (prior tweets for my findings). Plus not all on npm.

via Echofon

After some struggling found node-o3-fastxml to be a node.JS XML lib that mostly works like DOMParser.

Once again profiting from @webr3’s work. Forked his XHR (XMLHttpRequest) for node.JS: I owe this mate > a beer. =>
