NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::MethodOverride - Simulate HTTP Verbs

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.

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".

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

# Mojolicious
$self->plugin(MethodOverride => {header => 'X-Tunneled-Method'});

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