HTTP request node.js using mikeal's 'request'


I'm trying to use What is wrong with my code? Error message is under code. In my program, I'm using my real App and Rest ID's

var request = require('request'); {
url: '',
headers: {
    "X-Parse-Application-Id": "11111",
    "X-Parse-REST-API-Key": "222222",
    "Content-Type": "application/json" 
body: {
    "score": 1337, "playerName": "Sean Plott", "cheatMode": false
function (error, response, body) {
  if(response.statusCode == 201){
    console.log('Status Update');
  } else {
    console.log('error: '+ response.statusCode);

Error message:

    throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
Error: Argument error, options.body.

body should be a string, array or buffer. Not an object.

If you want to send json then send json

   json: { ... }

and i think the best

r = npm.request(options, function (error, response, body) {

if (error) {
var msg = error.code || 'Error code undefined!';

//and after

if((response.statusCode == 200) || (response.statusCode == 201)){
