🚀 Feature Proposal

Support RegExp for the addContentTypeParser API.


Currently, you need to add a new content type parser for each new content type you use. So you have to add 2 parsers if you use the content types application/vnd.user+json and application/, even though both are valid JSON objects and could use the same content type parser. This could be possible if the addContentTypeParser API supported RegExp in addition to string values.


fastify.addContentTypeParser(/s*\+json$/, { parseAs: "string" }, function (req, body, done) {
  try {
    var json = JSON.parse(body)
    done(null, json)
  } catch (err) {
    err.statusCode = 400
    done(err, undefined)
