Response Codes

Node.JS module used to extend the functionality of http.ServerResponse to include functions to easily end a request by status code. The module simply adds the following function for all common http status code numbers to the http.ServerResponse prototype.

function(message, headers){
  this.writeHead(CODE, headers);
  this.end(message);
}

Install

npm install response-codes

Usage

var http = require('http');
require('response-codes');

http.createServer( function(req,res){
  switch(req.url){
  case '/':
    res.OK('thanks');
    break;
  case '/private':
    res.UNAUTHORIZED('STAY AWAY!');
    break;
  default:
    res.NOT_FOUND('nothing to see here, move along');
    break;
  }
}).listen(1337);

This module also works with web frameworks such as Express.

Functions

Functions can be accessed by their name res.OK('message'); as well as their status code res[200]('message');
