NAME

Plack::Middleware::SuppressResponseCodes - Return HTTP Status code 200 for errors on request

VERSION

version 0.2

SYNOPSIS

    use Plack::Builder;

    builder {
        enable 'SuppressResponseCodes';
        $app;
    };

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::SuppressResponseCodes modifies error responses (PSGI response with HTTP status code 4xx or 5xx) if the query parameter suppress_response_codes is present with any value except 0 or false. The status code is set to 200 in this case. This behaviour is useful for clients that cannot handle HTTP errors. It has also been implemented in popular APIs such as Twitter and Microsoft Live.

SEE ALSO

One should think about embedding the status code in the response body when using this middleware, for instance with Plack::Middleware::JSONP::Headers.
