A simple middleware implementation for whatever HTTP server:

'use strict'
 
const RateLimiter = require('async-ratelimiter')
const Redis = require('ioredis')
 
const limit = new RateLimiter({
  db: new Redis()
})
 
const apiQuota = async (req, res, handler) => {
  const limit = await rateLimiter.get({ id: req.clientIp })
 
  if (!res.finished && !res.headersSent) {
    res.setHeader('X-Rate-Limit-Limit', limit.total)
    res.setHeader('X-Rate-Limit-Remaining', Math.max(0, limit.remaining - 1))
    res.setHeader('X-Rate-Limit-Reset', limit.reset)
  }
 
  return !limit.remaining
    ? sendFail({ req,
      res,
      code: HTTPStatus.TOO_MANY_REQUESTS,
