CORS HTTP component (middleware) for Neos Flow

v1.0.0-alpha1 2017-07-17 13:44 UTC

README

Fully featured CORS HTTP component (a.k.a. middleware) for Flow framework to allow "cross-domain" requests.

Background

This package is a implementation of a CORS middleware for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/CORS). This enables the client (browser) of a webapp to perform "cross-domain" requests.

The work is partially based on the awesome github.com/rs/cors HTTP middleware for the Go programming language.

Installation

composer require flowpack/cors

(Refer to the composer documentation for more details)

The default settings enables CORS for all origins (*) in the Flow Development context. This is usually not what you want in a production environment.

Configuration

In your package or global Settings.yaml (see Flow framework Configuration).

Enable CORS in Production:

Flowpack:
  Cors:

    enabled: true
    
    allowedOrigins:
      - 'trusted-domain.tld'

Add additional allowed headers (e.g. Authorization):

Flowpack:
  Cors:

    allowedHeaders:
      # defaults
      - 'Origin'
      - 'Accept'
      - 'Content-Type'
      # additional headers
      - 'Authorization'

Note: Make sure to set all array values including the defaults (if you want to keep them) in the configuration because the Flow configuration is merged with numeric keys which can lead to unwanted effects.

Configuration reference

Flowpack:
  Cors:

    enabled: false

    # A list of origins a cross-domain request can be executed from
    # If the special * value is present in the list, all origins will be allowed.
    # An origin may contain a wildcard (*) to replace 0 or more characters (i.e.: http://*.domain.com).
    # Only one wildcard can be used per origin.
    #
    allowedOrigins:
      - '*'

    # A list of methods the client is allowed to use with cross-domain requests.
    #
    allowedMethods:
      - 'GET'
      - 'POST'

    # A list of non simple headers the client is allowed to use with cross-domain requests.
    #
    allowedHeaders:
      - 'Origin'
      - 'Accept'
      - 'Content-Type'

    # Indicates which headers are safe to expose to the API of a CORS API specification
    #
    exposedHeaders: []

    # Indicates whether the request can include user credentials like cookies, HTTP authentication or client side SSL certificates.
    #
    allowCredentials: false

    # Indicates how long (in seconds) the results of a preflight request can be cached. The default is 0 which stands for no max age.
    #
    maxAge: 0

    # Instructs preflight to let other potential next components to process the OPTIONS method. Turn this on if your application handles OPTIONS.
    #
    optionsPassthrough: false

    # Debugging flag adds additional logging to System.log to debug server-side CORS issues.
    #
    debug: false
