What does it do?

This package sets up common requirements for running an Express app in production with the goal of reducing boilerplate in your applications. Here is a list of some of those things:

  • Uses next gen Express (5.0.0-alpha.7 at the time of publishing this)
  • Express app settings
    • Remove x-powered-by header
    • Sets query string parsing to simple (faster, more secure, planned default for 5.0)
  • Set process title (nice for identifying your server process)
  • Catch, report and exit on uncaughtException and unhandledRejection
  • Handle and report server clientErrors
  • Parses JSON bodies
  • Parses cookies (off by default, turn on by passing options.parseCookies
