similar to the methodOverride in Express except it overrides GET requests as well. This is useful for APIs servicing requests via JSONP.

GET methodOverride

A method override similar to express.methodOverride, but for GET requests instead of POST requests. This is incredibly useful when building client-side widgets that must interact with your API via XHR and JSONP requests.

npm install get-methodoverride

Usage

After installing the NPM package we need to add it to Express. In Express's app.configure block add app.use(require('get-methodoverride')); as seen below.

app.configure(function() {
    app.use(express.bodyParser());
    app.use(express.methodOverride());
    
    /* Add GET methodOverride AFTER express.methodOverride() and BEFORE app.router */
    app.use(require('get-methodoverride'));
    
    app.use(app.router);
})

Now, simply add the _method parameter to your request query as you would to the request body in the traditional methodOverride and your request will be properly routed.

Test

To run the tests, simply cd to the node-get-method-override directory and type the following

npm install -d
make test
