connect-powered-by

This middleware sets or removes the X-Powered-By header on HTTP responses. X-Powered-By is a de facto standard that specifies the technology supporting a web application. This header is used by services that gather metrics about the web, including Alexa and Netcraft.

Installation

$ npm install connect-powered-by

Usage

To set the X-Powered-By header on responses, simply use poweredBy middleware with a technology string.

var poweredBy = require('connect-powered-by');

app.configure(function() {
  app.use(poweredBy('Locomotive'));
});

To remove the X-Powered-By header, use poweredBy middleware and specify null as the technology string. This is useful if you want to remove this header when it is set unconditionally by your application framework, for example Express.

var poweredBy = require('connect-powered-by');

app.configure(function() {
  app.use(poweredBy(null));
});

Tests

$ npm install --dev
$ make test
