Moment.js | HomeHTTP access control (CORS) - HTTPA resource makes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource from a different domain than the one which the first resource itself serves. For example, an HTML page served from makes an <img> src request for Many pages on the web today load resources like CSS stylesheets, images and scripts from separate domains. For security reasons, browsers restrict cross-origin HTTP requests initiated from within scripts. For example, XMLHttpRequest and Fetch follow the same-origin policy. So, a web application using XMLHttpRequest or Fetch could only make HTTP requests to its own domain. The Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) mechanism gives web servers cross-domain access controls, which enable secure cross-domain data transfers. This article is for web administrators, server developers, and front-end developers. This cross-origin sharing standard is used to enable cross-site HTTP requests for: Overview Simple requests Origin See also
Underscore.jsCross-Origin Resource SharingAbstract This document defines a mechanism to enable client-side cross-origin requests. Specifications that enable an API to make cross-origin requests to resources can use the algorithms defined by this specification. If such an API is used on resources, a resource on can opt in using the mechanism described by this specification (e.g., specifying Access-Control-Allow-Origin: as response header), which would allow that resource to be fetched cross-origin from Status of this Document This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication.

How to return the response from an Ajax call?Cross-Domain Requests with CORSCross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a powerful technology for static web apps. To understand what it is and why it's important, you first need to understand a bit about how browsers work. The Same-Origin Policy The Same-Origin Policy restricts the browser from performing certain actions by scripts or documents based on the origin. A parent document can't access the contents of an <iframe> that comes from a different origin. The Same-Origin Policy is a vital piece of web security architecture, but it also poses a problem. Enter Cross-Origin Resource Sharing CORS allows you to more cleanly separate your front-end from your back-end. If you are building an application using a third-party data provider or an API that already supports CORS, there isn't much else you need to know! Implementing CORS CORS is a group of special response headers sent from the server that tell a browser whether or not to allow the request to go through. Access-Control-Allow-Origin:
.appendDescription: Insert content, specified by the parameter, to the end of each element in the set of matched elements. The .append() method inserts the specified content as the last child of each element in the jQuery collection (To insert it as the first child, use .prepend()). The .append() and .appendTo() methods perform the same task. The major difference is in the syntax-specifically, in the placement of the content and target. With .append(), the selector expression preceding the method is the container into which the content is inserted. Consider the following HTML: You can create content and insert it into several elements at once: Each inner <div> element gets this new content: You can also select an element on the page and insert it into another: If an element selected this way is inserted into a single location elsewhere in the DOM, it will be moved into the target (not cloned): Additional Arguments
Understanding Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)Note: This is a pretty trivial example I created for the purposes of illustration. I intentionally did not use of any frameworks. The onLoadHandler() function creates an XMLHttpRequest and opens it for a GET request to the GitHub API URL. The third parameter for the open method, is set to true, and specifies that this request is asynchronous. Next, the code snippets create the event handlers for the request. We are only handling the onload and onerror events but there are a number of other events available using CORS including onloadstart, onprogress, onabort, ontimeout, and onloadend events. Chrome, FireFox, Opera, Safari browsers Chrome supported CORS through the XMLHttpRequest level 2 as of version 3 (which seems like ages ago). Internet Explorer Sadly, Internet Explorer is the only browser that merits its own section here.
