get

Matches requests with HTTP method GET.

Signature

def get: Directive0

Description

This directive filters the incoming request by its HTTP method. Only requests with method GET are passed on to the inner route. All others are rejected with a MethodRejectionMethodRejection, which is translated into a 405 Method Not Allowed response by the default RejectionHandler.

Example

Scala
val route = get { complete("This is a GET request.") }

// tests:
Get("/") ~> route ~> check {
  responseAs[String] shouldEqual "This is a GET request."
}
Java
final Route route = get(() -> complete("This is a GET request."));

testRoute(route).run(HttpRequest.GET("/")).assertEntity(
    "This is a GET request.");
