Python Question

Extracting the json post parameter from aiohttp POST Request

currently I do something like this

app.router.add_route('POST', '/foo/{par}', foo_test)


How can I extract the body of the POST from request

@asyncio.coroutine
def foo_test(request):
body = request.content.read() #returns a generator


My question is how to extract the body from the generator returned ?

Answer

body = yield from request.json()
