How to end an express js node POST response

0 votes

Im trying to just stop the post request after I've saved a document to the DB, ie:

app.post('/blah'), function(req,res){ 
//my code does a bunch of stuff

res.what do i put here to tell the client browser to just... stop the POST
}

At the moment im simply using res.redirect('back') which works, but the page refresh is totally arbitrary and i would prefer it didnt happen. I had a go at res.end(); but that sends the client to a blank page.

Thanks in advance.

Hello @kartik,

You can use res.end and pass in a string that you want to be sent to the client:

res.end('It worked!');

Alternatively, you could render a view and then end the response:

res.render('blah.jade');
res.end();

Hope it helps!!
