jasnell commented Feb 13, 2017

The ServerResponse class has an undocumented writeHeader()
API that simply forwards on to the documented writeHead()
method. This adds a docs-only deprecation for the undocumented
method.

TODO: This will need to update the static deprecation identifier before landing

Checklist

-1, searching on github had a bunch of hits. What does 3 lines of code cost us to maintain?

What about docs-only deprecation? It doesn't make much sense to have two supported methods that do identical things.

It doesn't make much sense to have two supported methods that do identical things.

Sure it does if it doesn't break working code. I think it should be documented as an alias to writeHead().

I'm inclined to disagree, it increases the cognitive overhead. Imagine you type res.writeH^N (or whatever your editor uses for auto-completion), wouldn't it be nice when it marked one of the suggestions as deprecated? You won't have to spend a second thinking which one you should use.

@nodejs/ctc ... please give this one some thought. Should we deprecate writeHeader or document it as an acceptable alias for writeHead

+1 to documenting as doc-only deprecated for now. I will do a search and perhaps report some issues to the modules that are using that, if needed.

http: docs-only deprecation of res.writeHeader()
Doc-only deprecation of the undocumented res.writeHeader() API.
Also makes res.writeHeader an alias of res.writeHead since the
previous implementation simply deferred to that method.

The grep is here: https://gist.github.com/ChALkeR/c153d517454a72f96ab758d7286e5495 =).

http-signature is a false positive (it defines its own .writeHeader(). There are probably more false positives.

That's 426 modules total and 35 modules above 1000 downloads/month.
Excluding tests/examples — 334 modules total and 24 modules above 1000 downloads/month.

This should have been ### probably, atm its style is different from all the other deprecation entries on that page.
