Example usage

You initialize appstax with your app key as usual, and add use appstax.sessions() and appstax.cors() to apply the neccesary middleware.

var express = require("express");
var appstax = require("appstax-express");
 
var app = express();
 
appstax.init("your-app-key");
app.use(appstax.sessions());
app.use(appstax.cors("mydomain.appstax.io"));
 
app.get("/api/mydata", function(req, res) {
 
  // calls to appstax sdk methods will have the correct session id 
  appstax.findAll("messages").then(function(messages) {
    // returns objects where the requesting session has read access 
  })
 
});
