Hattip adapter for Node.js.

Standalone usage

import { createServer } from "@hattip/adapter-node";
import handler from "./handler.js";

createServer(handler).listen(3000, "localhost", () => {
  console.log("Server listening on http://localhost:3000");

Using with Node middleware

import { createServer } from "node:http";
import sirv from "sirv";
import { createMiddleware } from "@hattip/adapter-node";
import hattipHandler from "./entry-hattip.js";

const sirvMiddleware = sirv("public");
const hattipMiddleware = createMiddleware(hattipHandler);

  // Chain middlewares manually
  (req, res) => sirvMiddleware(req, res, () => hattipMiddleware(req, res)),
).listen(3000, () => {
  console.log(`Server listening on http://localhost:3000`);

Using with Express

import { createMiddleware } from "@hattip/adapter-node";
import handler from "./index.js";
import express from "express";

const app = express();

const middleware = createMiddleware(handler);

app.listen(3000, "localhost", () => {
  console.log("Server listening on http://localhost:3000");


 * Creates a request handler to be passed to http.createServer().
 * It can also be used as a middleware in Express or other
 * Connect-compatible frameworks).
function createMiddleware(
  handler: Handler,
  options?: NodeAdapterOptions,
): NodeMiddleware;

 * Create an HTTP server
function createServer(
  handler: Handler,
  adapterOptions?: NodeAdapterOptions,
  serverOptions?: ServerOptions,
): Server;

/** Adapter options */
interface NodeAdapterOptions {
   * Set the origin part of the URL to a constant value.
   * It defaults to `process.env.ORIGIN`. If neither is set,
   * the origin is computed from the protocol and hostname.
   * To determine the protocol, `req.protocol` is tried first.
   * If `trustProxy` is set, `X-Forwarded-Proto` header is used.
   * Otherwise, `req.socket.encrypted` is used.
   * To determine the hostname, `X-Forwarded-Host`
   * (if `trustProxy` is set) or `Host` header is used.
  origin?: string;
   * Whether to trust `X-Forwarded-*` headers. `X-Forwarded-Proto`
   * and `X-Forwarded-Host` are used to determine the origin when
   * `origin` and `process.env.ORIGIN` are not set. `X-Forwarded-For`
   * is used to determine the IP address. The leftmost value is used
   * if multiple values are set. Defaults to true if `process.env.TRUST_PROXY`
   * is set to `1`, otherwise false.
  trustProxy?: boolean;

Using native fetch

This adapter uses node-fetch if the fetch global is not available. You can disable this behavior by importing your adapter from @hattip/adapter-node/native-fetch, which will throw an error if fetch is not available.

context.passThrough behavior

Calling context.passThrough will pass the request to the next handler when used as a middleware. Otherwise the placeholder response will be returned.


This adapter makes Node's native request (IncomingMessage) and response (ServerResponse) objects available in context.platform.
