The "methods" NPM package provides HTTP verbs that Node.js core's HTTP parser supports. Compared to the
http.METHODS export from Node.js core, it has a few key differences: all method names are lower-cased, it contains a fallback list of methods for Node.js versions that do not have the
http.METHODS export (0.10 and lower), and it provides this fallback list without necessitating the inclusion of the
http shim module when using tools like Browserify. In essence, "methods" is a utility tool that aims to ease dealing with HTTP methods in Node.js applications, particularly for older versions of Node.js and for browser-oriented code.
To use the "methods" package in your Node.js application, you'll first need to install it via NPM. You can do so by running the command
npm install methods in your terminal. After installing, you can import the "methods" package into your script with
var methods = require('methods').
Here is an example of how to use the "methods" package in your application:
var methods = require('methods'); // Print all the HTTP methods supported console.log(methods);
This code imports the "methods" package and logs all the HTTP methods supported by Node.js to the console.
The official documentation for the "methods" NPM package can be found directly in the README file on the project's GitHub page at https://github.com/jshttp/methods. The README file contains comprehensive information on the functionality provided by the package, differences from the Node.js core
http.METHODS export, instructions for installation, and how to use the package in your Node.js applications. This is the go-to resource for everything related to the "methods" package.
