I have a form that is supposed to encode data as
application/x-www-form-urlencoded but on the server I always get
multipart/form-data. As far as I understand the Turbo source code, it passes a
FormData object to the fetch API, which will always be encoded as
Is there an option to tell Turbo to urlencode my data, that I missed? If not, is it planed for the future? Or is there a good reason to not use urlencoded forms, which I don’t get?
The main reason is because
multipart/form-data supports file uploads and
application/x-www-form-urlencoded does not.
But I agree that a better implementation would be to check
<form enctype> and default to URLSearchParams instead of FormData depending on the value.
This does break my application. Ignoring the
enctype parameter on a form and changing it does not seem like something that should be happening.
I’ve opened an issue for <form enctype> support: https://github.com/hotwired/turbo/issues/76
