Description

Send function accepts either json string or query strings which is usually used to assign data to POST or PUT method. Without specifying any type, if you give Send with json data, you are doing requesting in json format:

gorequest.New().
  Post("/search").
  Send(`{ query: 'sushi' }`).
  End()

While if you use at least one of querystring, GoRequest understands and automatically set the Content-Type to `application/x-www-form-urlencoded`

gorequest.New().
  Post("/search").
  Send("query=tonkatsu").
  End()

So, if you want to strictly send json format, you need to use Type func to set it as `json` (Please see more details in Type function). You can also do multiple chain of Send:

gorequest.New().
  Post("/search").
  Send("query=bicycle&size=50x50").
  Send(`{ wheel: '4'}`).
  End()

From v0.2.0, Send function provide another convenience way to work with Struct type. You can mix and match it with json and query string:

type BrowserVersionSupport struct {
  Chrome string
  Firefox string
}
ver := BrowserVersionSupport{ Chrome: "37.0.2041.6", Firefox: "30.0" }
gorequest.New().
  Post("/update_version").
  Send(ver).
  Send(`{"Safari":"5.1.10"}`).
  End()

If you have set Type to text or Content-Type to text/plain, content will be sent as raw string in body instead of form

gorequest.New().
  Post("/greet").
  Type("text").
  Send("hello world").
  End()
