HTTP header normalizer middleware for the middy framework, the stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda

npm version Known Vulnerabilities Standard Code Style Chat on Gitter

This middleware normalizes HTTP header names to their canonical format. Very useful if clients are not using the canonical names of header (e.g. content-type as opposed to Content-Type).

API Gateway does not perform any normalization, so the headers are propagated to Lambda exactly as they were sent by the client.

Other middlewares like jsonBodyParser or urlEncodeBodyParser will rely on headers to be in the canonical format, so if you want to support non-normalized headers in your app you have to use this middleware before those ones.

This middleware will copy the original headers in event.rawHeaders.


To install this middleware you can use NPM:

npm install --save @middy/http-header-normalizer


Sample usage

import middy from '@middy/core'
import httpHeaderNormalizer from '@middy/http-header-normalizer'

const handler = middy((event, context) => {
  return {}
