Form Post as JSON

Hi Netlify,

I am a bit surprised that you only process form request sent with as URL encoded - x-www-form-urlencoded.

Indeed, JSON objects are the defacto industry standards now for API and the Internet in general, most frameworks and even vanillia Javascript have built-in functions to serialize/deserialize objects as JSON.

I attempted to send my forms with JSON post data, and they were not processed, therefore my question is do you plan in a near/distant future to enable support JSON requests?

Kind regards,

Hey @aress31,

Although this isn’t something we support now, there is an open feature request for this. We’ll be sure to feed back if/when there are any developments. Thanks for your input!

Thanks for the reply @Pieparker, please make sure to notify me once this feature is implemented so that I can simplify my application code.
