An express 4+
Router representing a RESTful resource as JSON.
BYODB - Bring your own database! (see database dependency).
Originally written to help get prototype apps running anywhere quickly and hassle-free - a main reason why support for nedb's in-memory or file-based databases was built-in.
Provides standard RESTful routes, mapping to database calls:
GET / -> list all GET /:id -> read one POST / -> insert PUT /:id -> update DELETE /:id -> remove
This router can be mounted at any path in your express app. Routes behave RESTfully - responding with meaningful HTTP status codes, validating accepts and content types, etc.
For modularity, a database implementation is not built-in. Instead, a database (or collection) must be injected as a dependency. Expects the injected database to implement a subset of the MongoDB API. Supported databases include: nedb, MongoDB.
var express = ;var expressRestResource = ;var nedb = ;var app = ;var personDb = ;var postDb = ;app;app;app;
http://localhost:3000/api/person with JSON body would create and persist a new person resource.
