Upload files using Faraday

I'm having issues attempting to upload a file to a web service using Faraday.

My code:

conn = Faraday.new('http://myapi') do |f|
f.request :multipart
end

payload = { :file => Faraday::UploadIO.new('...', 'image/jpeg') }

conn.post('/', payload)


Nothing seems to happen after attempting the post. When I inspect the response this is what I'm seeing:

The body is being set to a CompositeReadIO object and it seems to never be sending out a request.

Answer

It turns out that I needed to specify an adapter. Here's the code that ended up working.

conn = Faraday.new('http://myapi') do |f|
  f.request :multipart
  f.request :url_encoded
  f.adapter :net_http # This is what ended up making it work
end

payload = { :file => Faraday::UploadIO.new('...', 'image/jpeg') }

conn.post('/', payload)
