    Apps/A Middleware (Node.js)

    Codename "Pear"

    image

    A Node.js reference implementation of a middleware for loading and rendering Apps.

    Quickstart

    $ npm install
    $ PORT=1234 node example/index.js

    And then visit 127.0.0.1:1234.

    Connect Middleware

    #!/usr/bin/env coffee 
    http    = require 'http'
    connect = require 'connect'
     
    middleware = require '../middleware.coffee'
     
    app = connect()
    .use(middleware
        'apps': [
            'git://github.com/intermine/intermine-apps-a.git'
        ]
        'config': __dirname + '/config.json'
    )
    .use(connect.static(__dirname + '/public'))
     
    http.createServer(app).listen process.env.PORT

    The middleware accepts two params. One, apps, is an Array of paths to app sources. This can be any of the following:

    1. Git paths on the net like: git://github.com/intermine/intermine-apps-a.git
    2. Local file paths: file:///home/dev/intermine-apps-a

    The other parameter, config, represents the configuration you want merged with the config from the apps sources. This can be one of the following:

    1. Local file path: file:///home/dev/example-middleware/config.json
    2. A plain JS Object.

    Only the first parameter is required.

    Then, the middleware provides you with two routes:

    1. GET /middleware/apps/a - which gives you a config for all the apps it can serve
    2. GET /middleware/apps/a/:appId - which returns one app

    Both URLs are being used internally by the Apps client (see example/public/js/intermine.fatapps.js).
