That would be giallo.

> giallo:post_param(<<"param_name">>, Req)  returns {error, badlength} for rather short texts (I really need to post much larger texts).

You've hit the default MaxBodyLength of 16kb: https://github.com/extend/cowboy/blob/master/guide/req.md#request-body

I've just pushed a new version with a post_param/4 which lets you optionally specify your own MaxBodyLength or the atom infinity to ignore the body_length check. Remember that the body_length check was added to cowboy to mitigate a possible DoS scenario: https://gist.github.com/josevalim/eea34c1c76056d2fdf4f
