@julian in case you are still interested. I realized I didn't provide my post with enough context or state what high level problem I am trying to solve. I am writing a private plugin that involves accepting stripe payments. In order to handle stripe event hooks correctly I need the incoming data to be in raw format hence the usage of body-parser. However I just couldn't figure out how to get around the json bodyparser in webserver.js. So after a long discussion on Stackoverflow somebody found a temporary hack. However we also came to the conclusion that it would be nice to have a hook that gets fired up even earlier than
That way I can attach my middleware before the json parser in webserver. Am I missing another hook that I might be able to use? Or can you think of another way to resolve my issue that does not involve using the hack in the Stackoverflow answer?
