Usage Example

const hooman = require('hooman');

(async () => {
  try {
    const response = await hooman.get('');
    //=> '<!doctype html> ...'
  } catch (error) {
    //=> 'Internal server error ...'
const { body } = await'', {
  json: {
    hello: 'world',
  responseType: 'json',
//=> {hello: 'world'}
Pipe Stream
// This is mandatory to set cookie first since .stream() doesn't fire hooks
await hooman(jsChallengePage);

// Now we can download files
const image = fs.createWriteStream('image.jpg');;
const response = await hooman.get(url, {
  captchaKey: '2captcha_or_rucaptcha_api_key',
  rucaptcha: true | false, // optional (default false)

You can also set environment variable HOOMAN_CAPTCHA_KEY and HOOMAN_RUCAPTCHA

All you need to do is provide captchaKey and rest is done by hooman. It automatically detects if g/hCaptcha is present and need solving or can be solved. There are console.log print on hit as well.

Note that if you make multiple request to same site at once only the first request will be sent for captcha solving while other request will be hanged until captcha is solved. You might face multiple trigger to captcha, please monitor your usage. Best practice is to make a dummy request first and let hooman solve captcha and then process further requests.

Custom Captcha Handling
const response = await hooman.get(url, {
  // required
  captchaKey: 'your_captcha_api_key',
  // use with captchaKey, should return captcha response string or undefined
  onCaptcha: ({ key, pageurl, sitekey, method }) => {
    // solve captcha here
    return h_captcha_response;
const HttpsProxyAgent = require('https-proxy-agent');

const proxy = new HttpsProxyAgent('');

const response = await hooman('', {
  agent: {
    https: proxy,
