express-etaggable

Express middleware that handles the Etag caching mechanism for you and only calls the dynamic function to load the content when needed. Build Status

Usage

response.etaggable(etag, loadContentFn);

Example:

var etaggable = require('../');
var express = require('express');
var app = express();
 
var getEtag = function(key, cb) {
  return setImmediate(function() {
    cb(null, '4ALOzWNKcFh6OImOu5t68l0C2os=');
  });
};
 
app.get('/cached-data', etaggable, function(req, res, next) {
  getEtag('cached-data', function(err, etag) {
    if (err) { return next(err); }
 
    res.etaggable(etag, function() {
      // the second time you visit the page this won't get called
      console.log('loading dynamic content');
      res.send('Big content loaded from database/cache/filesystem here.');
    });
  });
});
 
app.listen(process.env.PORT || 7777);

Motivation

In case you already know the Etag for a page it doesn't make sense to also load its content each time.
