Build Status Coverage Status npm version

NPM

The very outer middleware of Koa to handle every response of every request.

Usage

Installation

yarn add koa-final-response or npm install koa-final-response --save

Example

const path = require('path');
// Error object, see https://github.com/hapijs/boom
// We recommand to use Boom as the standard object for error responses
const Boom = require('boom');
const Koa = require('koa');
const mountRoutes = require('koa-mount-routes');
const finalResp = require('koa-final-response');
 
const app = new Koa();
// this middleware should be added before router works
app.use(finalResp({ env: process.env.NODE_ENV || 'development' }));
// mount routes, see https://github.com/Maples7/koa-mount-routes
mountRoutes(app, path.join(__dirname, 'controllers'), {
  allowedMethods: {
    throw: true,
    notImplemented: () => {
      throw Boom.notImplemented('HTTP method for this API is not implemented');
    },
    methodNotAllowed: () => {
      throw Boom.methodNotAllowed('HTTP method for this API is not allowed');
    }
  }
});
app.listen(3000);

How to return results

  1. For normal responses, you can pass your result data to ctx.body directly just following the standard Koa way;

  2. For error responses, we recommend you use Boom to pass those expected errors like throw Boom.unauthorized('invalid password'). Besides, any unexpected errors and non-Boom errors thrown by yourself will also be catched and handled well as you want.

Responses

  • Normal response

    {
      "success": true,
      "data": ....  // what you assign to `ctx.body`
    }
  • Error response

    {
      "success": false,
      "error": "Method Not Allowed", // HTTP error correlated to HTTP statusCode
      "message": "HTTP method for this API is not allowed" // error message
    }
  • 404 response

    {
      "success": false,
      "error": "Not Found",
      "message": "API Not Found"
    }

API

app.use(
  finalResp({
    env, // String. you can pass environmental variable such as NODE_ENV to it. if it is `production`, we will not return error details to user but a vague error messege like `An internal server error occurred`. Default value: 'production'.
    errStatusCodePropertie // Array. it is about where to find HTTP Status Code of response while an error is thrown. We will search a valid number from property of Error Object in order. Default value: ['statusCode', 'status', 'code']. And the default HTTP Status Code for error response is 500.
    logger // Object/`false`. You can pass a logger here or let `ctx.log` point to a logger to log requests error such as `console` or any other logger with function `error` inside. If you want disable error log anyway, pass `false`. Default value: null.
  })
);
