If you use request module from this link
You can use, for example, this code:
var requset =, function (err, resp, body) {
  if (err) {
  } else {
    console.log('URL: ' + body);
var form = requset.form();
form.append('file', '<FILE_DATA>', {
  filename: 'myfile.txt',
  contentType: 'text/plain'

Open in new window

And you can use this code, if you post existing file from file system:
form.append('file', fs.createReadStream(filepath));

Open in new window

Also you can read this good article about post files in node.js
