Usage

Configuration

Key Value Description More info
routes RestAPI definition, see below for the structure.
resources static resources definition, see below for the structure.

Example:

const opts = {
  routes: {
    "/": {
      resources: {
        "/": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
            action: (req, res, next) => {
              return res.success({
                msg: "Welcome ! The Documentation is available here : /api/",
              });
            },
          },
        ],
        "/healthcheck": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
            action: (req, res, next) => {
              return res.success({ msg: "Pong !" });
            },
          },
        ],
      },
    },
    "/user": {
      resources: {
        "/": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "find"))
              .route,
          },
          {
            method: "post",
            middlewares: [],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "create"))
              .route,
          },
        ],
        "/:id": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "findOne"))
              .route,
          },
          {
            method: "put",
            middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "update"))
              .route,
          },
          {
            method: "delete",
            middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "remove"))
              .route,
          },
        ],
      },
    },
  },
  resources: [
    {
      path: "/public",
      resource: path.join(__dirname, "public"),
    },
    {
      path: "/img",
      resource: path.join(__dirname, "images"),
    },
  ],
};

Functions

constructor(opts, log = console)

Initialize the configurations globally.

const WebuxRoute = require("@studiowebux/route");
const webuxRoute = new WebuxRoute(opts, console);

The opts parameter is optional, You can skip the routes and resources definition and pass the configurations manually using the LoadRoute & LoadStatic function.

The log parameter allows to use a custom logger, by default it uses the console.

LoadRoute(router, routes = null): Promise

It loads the RestAPI routes automatically using a JSON configuration.

The JSON structure
  • The option must be an object.
  • The first object is the parent route
    • Like http://webuxlab.com/api/v1/healthcheck, where the last / is the parent and healthcheck the specific route.
  • The parent route has one key named resources
    • This object can have multiple specific routes
      • Each specific route has 3 keys
        • method: GET, POST, PATCH, DELETE, PUT, OPTIONS
        • middlewares: An array of middlewares to use on the specific route, the function will be use in the same order.
        • action: Can be the actual function using the express route definition ((req, res, next)=>{...}) or a require that export the route (like the user route).
  • To use the request parameter, simply use the : notation

Using the configuration provided by the module,

const express = require("express");
const app = express();
const router = express.Router();

webuxRoute.LoadRoute(router);

app.use("/", router);

With the configuration in parameter,

const routes = {
  "/": {
    resources: {
      "/": [
        {
          method: "get",
          middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
          action: (req, res, next) => {
            return res.success({
              msg: "Welcome ! The Documentation is available here : /api/",
            });
          },
        },
      ],
      "/healthcheck": [
        {
          method: "get",
          middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
          action: (req, res, next) => {
            return res.success({ msg: "Pong !" });
          },
        },
      ],
    },
  },
  "/user": {
    resources: {
      "/:id": [
        {
          method: "put",
          middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
          action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "update"))
            .route,
        },
      ],
    },
  },
};

webuxRoute.LoadRoute(router, routes);
app.use("/", router);

The routes parameter is only used when you want to load a different configuration than the one present in the module configuration.In other words, it allows to use multiple configuration besides the global one. The router parameter is provided by Express.

LoadStatic(app, express, resources = null): Promise

It loads Static resources routes automatically using a JSON configuration,

The JSON structure
  • The option must be an array
  • each element has 2 keys.
    • path: The external path to access the resources.
    • resource: The path on the server where the resources are stored.
Usage

Using the configuration provided by the module,

const express = require("express");
const app = express();
const webuxRoute = new WebuxRoute(opts, console);

webuxRoute.LoadStatic(app, express);

With the configuration in parameter,

const express = require("express");
const app = express();
const webuxRoute = new WebuxRoute();

const resources = [
  {
    path: "/public",
    resource: path.join(__dirname, "public"),
  },
  {
    path: "/img",
    resource: path.join(__dirname, "images"),
  },
];

webuxRoute.LoadStatic(app, express, resources);

The resources parameter is only used when you want to load a different configuration than the one present in the module configuration.In other words, it allows to use multiple configuration besides the global one. The app & express parameters are provided by express.

LoadResponse(app): Void

It loads the custom responses and attaches them to the res object from Express.

const express = require("express");
const app = express();

webuxRoute.LoadResponse(app);
Custom responses Usage with res
app.get("/success", (req, res) => {
  res.success({ message: "success" }, "success", "success");
});

app.get("/created", (req, res) => {
  res.created({ message: "created" }, "created", "created");
});

app.get("/updated", (req, res) => {
  res.updated({ message: "updated" }, "updated", "updated");
});

app.get("/deleted", (req, res) => {
  res.deleted({ message: "deleted" }, "deleted", "deleted");
});

app.get("/forbidden", (req, res) => {
  // msg, devMsg
  res.forbidden();
});

app.get("/badrequest", (req, res) => {
  // msg, devMsg
  res.badRequest();
});

app.get("/servererror", (req, res) => {
  // msg, devMsg
  res.serverError();
});

app.get("/notFound", (req, res) => {
  // msg, devMsg
  res.notFound();
});

app.get("/unprocessable", (req, res) => {
  // msg, devMsg
  res.unprocessable();
});

app.get("/custom", (req, res) => {
  res.custom(200, { message: "Custom  response", user: "User Name" });
});

Quick start

Complete example

Step 1. Directories creation

Répertoire Description
actions/* The application logic (See the example/actions directory to see all possibilities)
images It stores the images
public It stores the public resources, like html files and others
config.js The routes and resources JSON configuration
index.js The server using ExpressJS

Step 2. Action example

actions/user/find.js

const route = async (req, res, next) => {
  return res.success({ msg: "Find User", user: { fullname: "John Doe" } });
};

module.exports = { route };

Step 3. The configuration

config.js

const path = require("path");

// Include the middlewares somehow...
const isAuthenticated = () => {
  return (req, res, next) => {
    console.log("The user must be authenticated to execute the action...");
    return next();
  };
};

module.exports = {
  routes: {
    "/": {
      resources: {
        "/": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
            action: (req, res, next) => {
              return res.success({
                msg: "Welcome ! The Documentation is available here : /api/",
              });
            },
          },
        ],
        "/healthcheck": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [], // By default, this route is publicly available, you should create a middleware to protect this resource.
            action: (req, res, next) => {
              return res.success({ msg: "Pong !" });
            },
          },
        ],
      },
    },
    "/user": {
      resources: {
        "/": [
          {
            method: "get",
            middlewares: [isAuthenticated()],
            action: require(path.join(__dirname, "actions", "user", "find"))
              .route,
          },
        ],
      },
    },
  },
  resources: [
    {
      path: "/public",
      resource: path.join(__dirname, "public"),
    },
    {
      path: "/img",
      resource: path.join(__dirname, "images"),
    },
  ],
};

Step 4. Server File

index.js

const WebuxRoute = require("../src/index");
const express = require("express");
const app = express();
const router = express.Router();
const options = require("./config");

const webuxRoute = new WebuxRoute(options, console);

(async () => {
  await webuxRoute.LoadResponse(app);
  await webuxRoute.LoadRoute(router);

  app.use("/", router);

  // must be added after load the REST API routes.
  await webuxRoute.LoadStatic(app, express);

  app.listen(1337, () => {
    console.log("Server is listening on port 1337");
  });
})();
