204 / No Content

“服务器成功处理了请求,但不需要返回任何实体内容,并且希望返回更新了的元信息。响应可能通过实体头部的形式,返回新的或更新后的元信息。如果存在这些头部信息,则应当与所请求的变量相呼应。如果客户端是浏览器的话,那么用户浏览器应保留发送了该请求的页面,而不产生任何文档视图上的变化,即使按照规范新的或更新后的元信息应当被应用到用户浏览器活动视图中的文档。由于204响应被禁止包含任何消息体,因此它始终以消息头后的第一个空行结尾。“ — wikipedia

“The server has fulfilled the request but does not need to return an entity-body, and might want to return updated metainformation. The response MAY include new or updated metainformation in the form of entity-headers, which if present SHOULD be associated with the requested variant.
If the client is a user agent, it SHOULD NOT change its document view from that which caused the request to be sent. This response is primarily intended to allow input for actions to take place without causing a change to the user agent's active document view, although any new or updated metainformation SHOULD be applied to the document currently in the user agent's active view.
The 204 response MUST NOT include a message-body, and thus is always terminated by the first empty line after the header fields.“ — ietf
