Unable to parse files from multipart/form-data request

See original GitHub issue

I am not able to parse files from 'content-type': 'multipart/form-data requests. I am not seeing any example so I am creating this issue.

I tried to parse through ctx.request.files & ctx.request.body.files but both return undefined

I am using: "koa": "^2.3.0" "koa-bodyparser": "4.2.0" node: v7.10.1 npm: 4.2.0

Might be worth mentioning in the README that koa-bodyparser doesn’t handle enctype="multipart/form-data" 😃

(edit: or incorporate PR #91?).

I used koa2-formidable package and able to parse files from request data.

  • In app.js var formidable = require('koa2-formidable'); app.use (formidable ({}))
  • ctx.request.files contains the files from request data
