HTTP methods that node supports


HTTP verbs that Node.js core's HTTP parser supports.

This module provides an export that is just like http.METHODS from Node.js core, with the following differences:

  • All method names are lower-cased.
  • Contains a fallback list of methods for Node.js versions that do not have a http.METHODS export (0.10 and lower).
  • Provides the fallback list when using tools like browserify without pulling in the http shim module.
$ npm install methods
var methods = require('methods')

This is an array of lower-cased method names that Node.js supports. If Node.js provides the http.METHODS export, then this is the same array lower-cased, otherwise it is a snapshot of the verbs from Node.js 0.10.
