Multipart form parsing for Falcon.

Project Description

[![Build Status](](

# Parse multipart/form-data requests in Falcon

## Install

pip install falcon-multipart

## Usage

Add the `MultipartMiddleware` to your api middlewares:

from falcon_multipart.middleware import MultipartMiddleware

api = falcon.API(middleware=[MultipartMiddleware()])

This will parse any `multipart/form-data` incoming request, and put the keys
in `req._params`, including files, so you get the field as other params.

## Dealing with files

Files will be available as [`cgi.FieldStorage`](,
with following main parameters:

- `file`: act as a python file, you can call `read()` on it, and you will
retrieve content (as *bytes*)
- `filename`: the filename, if given
- `value`: the file content in *bytes*
- `type`: the content-type, or None if not specified
- `disposition`: content-disposition, or None if not specified

## Example

# Say you have a form with those fields:
# - title => a string
# - image => an image file

def on_post(req, resp, **kwargs):
title = req.get_param('title')
image = req.get_param('image')
# Read image as binary
raw =
# Retrieve filename
filename = image.filename
