fi-seed-component-routes

Fi Seed's Routes component

Installing

npm install --save fi-seed-component-routes

Usage

Use on fi-seed

var sockets = component('routes');

Use on Express/Node app

var sockets = require('fi-seed-component-routes');

Initialization

You must call it with your Express' application instance and a configuration object:

var routes = require('fi-seed-component-routes');
var express = require('express');
 
var app = express();
 
routes(app, {
  basedir: path.join(__basedir, 'routes'),
  debug: require('debug')('app:routes'),
  arguments: [
    require('mongoose')
  ]
});
 
app.listen(0);

Configuration

The configuration option can have the folloging properties:

  • basedir: This is required and must be a string. This is the absolute path where the route modules are located.
  • debug: This is optional and can be a Function to log into or a Boolean. If true it will use console.log.
  • arguments: This is optional and can be an array of values you wish to pass to each route module after the router.

Route Modules

The route modules inside your routes folder must be like this:

module.exports = function (router) {
 
  router.get('/', function (req, res, next) {
    //...
  });
 
  router.post('/', function (req, res, next) {
    //...
  });
 
  router.get('/filtered', function (req, res, next) {
    //...
  });
 
};

The exported function will receive the router instance as created with express.Router() and the additional arguments. If the module's file name is index.js then its route will be / relative to its folder.

Folders are also respected, so if a socket module is located in [...]/routes/api/resources.js then its path will be /api/resources and if its file name is index.js inside that same folder then its path will be /api.

Important

As you can see, you can declare sub paths inside each route module so be aware of the order that routes are processed and be aware to not replace a declared route module path with a sub folder name.
