Status Codes

Falcon provides a list of constants for common HTTP response status codes.

For example:

# Override the default "200 OK" response status
resp.status = falcon.HTTP_409

Or, using the more verbose name:

resp.status = falcon.HTTP_CONFLICT

Using these constants helps avoid typos and cuts down on the number of string objects that must be created when preparing responses.

Falcon also provides a generic HTTPStatus class. Raise this class from a hook, middleware, or a responder to stop handling the request and skip to the response handling. It takes status, additional headers and body as input arguments.

HTTPStatus

class falcon.HTTPStatus(status, headers=None, body=None) [source]

Represents a generic HTTP status.

Raise an instance of this class from a hook, middleware, or responder to short-circuit request processing in a manner similar to falcon.HTTPError, but for non-error status codes.

status

str – HTTP status line, e.g. ‘748 Confounded by Ponies’.

headers

dict – Extra headers to add to the response.

body

str or unicode – String representing response content. If Unicode, Falcon will encode as UTF-8 in the response.

Parameters:
  • status (str) – HTTP status code and text, such as ‘748 Confounded by Ponies’.
  • headers (dict) – Extra headers to add to the response.
  • body (str or unicode) – String representing response content. If Unicode, Falcon will encode as UTF-8 in the response.
