Method override middleware for Koa

Koa Method Override

Method override middleware for Koa. It supports two override methods:

  • Form
  • HTTP header

Form:

<form action="" method="POST">
  <input type="hidden" name="_method" value="PUT" />
</form>

The name field is defaulted to _method. You can customize this.

HTTP Header:

It checks if the HTTP header X-HTTP-Method-Override exists.

NPM:

npm install koa-method-override

Note: You need to include the body parser's context before the method override.

var methodOverride = require("koa-method-override");
 
var koa = require('koa');
var app = koa();
 
// Include the body parser context 
app.context(require('koa-body-parser'));
 
// Use the middleware. 
app.use(methodOverride());

You may specify the form key to be used:

app.use(methodOverride('someRandomKey'));

This overrides the method key within the context.

this.method // Will be overriden with the new HTTP method. 

The original method that was actually used is now stored under:

this.originalMethod

Note: this.method, once overriden, will be lowercased.
