AngularJS Question

Angular $resource doesn't change method

I'm trying to configure a simple service with Angular.js and Couchdb

var App = angular.module('myapp', ['ngResource'], function(){});

App.factory('products', ['$resource', function($resource) {

var Products = $resource(
{ all: { method: 'GET'} }

return {
all: function() {
return Products.all();

When I call
from my controller always I get

Request headers

OPTIONS /productos/_all_docs HTTP/1.1

Response headers

Request URL:http://localhost:5984/productos/_all_docs
Request Method:OPTIONS

I can not imagine why it sends an OPTIONS method when I haven't declared that!

Answer Source

The OPTIONS method comes from doing a cross origin request. See Jquery: Why am I getting an OPTIONS request insted of a GET request?. Even though both the host and the request is to localhost, the ports are different (5984, 8000). See Same origin host, different ports in JS.
