NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::MethodOverride - Simulate HTTP Verbs

VERSION

Version 0.041

SYNOPSIS

  package My::App;
  use Mojo::Base 'Mojolicious';

  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;

    $self->plugin('MethodOverride');

    ...
  }

  1;

DESCRIPTION

This plugin can simulate any HTTP verb (a.k.a. HTTP method) in environments where HTTP verbs other than GET and POST are not available. It uses the same approach as in many other restful web frameworks, where it replaces the HTTP POST method with a method given by an HTTP header. It is also possible to define a query parameter for the same purpose.

Any token built of US-ASCII letters is accepted as a valid value for the HTTP verb.

CONFIGURATION

The default HTTP header to override the HTTP POST method is "X-HTTP-Method-Override". Overriding through a query parameter is off by default.

These settings can be changed in the plugin method call as demonstrated in the examples below:

  # Mojolicious
  $self->plugin(
    MethodOverride => {
      header => 'X-Tunneled-Method',
      param  => 'x-tunneled-method',
    }
  );

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'MethodOverride',
    header => 'X-HTTP-Method',
    param  => 'http_method';

HTTP header can be disabled by setting to undef:

  # A Mojolicious app, that enables method overriding
  # by query parameter only:
  $self->plugin(
    MethodOverride => {
      header => undef,
      param  => 'x-tunneled-method',
    }
  );
