OPTIONS Request

There is no purpose in requesting this method manually. However, some javascript libraries such as axios submit an OPTIONS request before the POST request in the case of Content-Type: application/json.

In order to work with that, an OPTIONS request is sent from the website, to itself. This will return the landing page, along with the required to headers in order for CORS to not block the preflight-response.

Deploying on Heroku

  1. First of all begin by forking this reposity. This can be done by clicking the fork button next to the top of repository. Fork

  2. Then create your heroku app under the name you like.

Create App becomes Create App Form

  1. You will be taken to the new app's page, where you can specify the deployment method you wish to use. In our case, GitHub. Connect to GitHub

  2. After connecting to GitHub, search for the name of the fork and Connect it.

Searching Fork becomes Connected Fork

  1. After it has been connected, deploy the branch on Heroku.

Pre Deployment becomes Post Deployment

  1. View your app. App
You can’t perform that action at this time.
