The app.all() function is used to route all types of HTTP requests. Like if we have POST, GET, PUT, DELETE, etc, requests made to any specific route, let’s say /user, so instead of defining different APIs like‘/user’), app.get(‘/user’), etc, we can define single API app.all(‘/user’) which will accept all type of HTTP request. 


app.all( path, callback )


  • Path: It is the path for which the middleware function is called.
  • Callback: It can be a middleware function or a series/array of functions.
