NAME

Catalyst::TraitFor::Request::Methods - Add enumerated methods for HTTP requests

VERSION

version v0.1.1

SYNOPSIS

In the Catalyst class

  __PACKAGE__->config(
    request_class_traits => [
        'Methods'
    ]
  );

In any code that uses a Catalyst::Request, e.g.

 if ($c->request->is_post) {
     ...
 }

DESCRIPTION

This trait adds enumerated methods from RFC 7231 and RFC 5789 for checking the HTTP request method.

Using these methods is a less error-prone alternative to checking a case-sensitive string with the method name.

In other words, you can use

  $c->request->is_get

instead of

  $c->request->method eq "GET"

METHODS

is_get

The request method is GET.

is_head

The request method is HEAD.

is_post

The request method is POST.

is_put

The request method is PUT.

is_delete

The request method is DELETE.

is_connect

The request method is CONNECT.

is_options

The request method is OPTIONS.

is_trace

The request method is TRACE.

is_patch

The request method is PATCH.
