In this video, explore the most common methods used to send a response back to the client within Express's APIs.
- [Instructor] With routes there are multiple response types…we can do and we'll go through a few of them.…We've already done .send and .json quite a bit.….Send basically sends various responses.…For example, we've already sent a message to the browser…but we could also render pure HTML by coding it…directly into our response.…The .json basically sends a JSON response to the client…ready to be consumed by front end code…which we've done in our code.…Let's explore a few more examples.…
For those examples, I'm going to do a getCall,…but you can put or post or delete if you want,…so, for example, if you do a put call…and then you want to send it to another web page…then you could do res.redirect,…and basically send them to another page.…You can use those response types or response methods…to any of those methods for the app here.…For example, let's do a get for that particular item…so we can actually test it in our browser.…
