Refresh REST/Webdav for node
This project will be a module that exposes ANY data source as HTTP. The goals are as follows:
- Implement GET/PUT/POST/DELETE as typically done in web apps
- Implement enough of WebDav to enable mounting read/write in Finder
- Further implement WebDav for other clients as time allows and need arises.
The main goal is to make a simple resource provider for web-apps and other http clients. This will work with, but not be tied to node-persistence
RESTful Web Service HTTP methods
|Collection URI, such as
||List the members of the collection, complete with their member URIs for further navigation. For example, list all the cars for sale.||Meaning defined as "replace the entire collection with another collection".||Create a new entry in the collection where the ID is assigned automatically by the collection. The ID created is usually included as part of the data returned by this operation.||Meaning defined as "delete the entire collection".|
|Element URI, such as
||Retrieve a representation of the addressed member of the collection expressed in an appropriate MIME type||Update the addressed member of the collection or create it with the specified ID.||Treats the addressed member as a collection in its own right and creates a new subordinate of it.||Delete the addressed member of the collection.|
WebDav clients aren't good about following the spec, here are some notes.
