15:07 Circuitsoft Well, in this case, there's never any content at all.
15:08 Circuitsoft The request is asking a backend to fill a cache for the frontend to use.
15:08 Circuitsoft And the response is just from the backend to the frontend, saying whether it worked.

22:55 pdurbin Circuitsoft: maybe you're looking for 204 No Content
22:56 Circuitsoft I guess if I'm sending "Content-Length: 0" then I don't really need to provide a "Content-Type" header.
22:56 Circuitsoft But, 204 does sound good.
22:57 Circuitsoft I'm writing a multi-layer app, where part of the job is done by a "backend" written in Python (under uWSGI) and part is done by a "frontend" written in Lua/OpenResty.
22:57 Circuitsoft Working on some of the interfaces between the layers.

22:59 d4rklit3 hi
22:59 d4rklit3 is it ok to accept a payload that may have extra params in the body than required. for instance if i have a react app that sends data to the server, its very convenient to be able to send some extra props and have the server just ignore them as long as the required params are present.
22:59 d4rklit3 we have react front ends and they sometimes give some extra data in the payload that the servers should just disregard
23:00 d4rklit3 everythign gets stored in SQL so i don't see any risks of sql injections or anything like that
23:00 d4rklit3 the fields in the DB are predefined
23:05 pdurbin "be liberal in what you accept" (Postel's law)
