Build the REST API with json metadata.

This is a quick back-end system. You need create more modules, more versions, more APIs.. with only one json metadata


Start MongoDB

mongod --port 27017

I. Getting started with global module

1. Install C-CORE
npm install -g c-core
2. Initial application
c-core init
3. Updating application
c-core update
4. Configuration environment
cp .env.copy .env
5. Start application
c-core start

II. Getting started with include as a module

1. Init the project
npm init project-name

Open the file package.json and update tag "scripts"

"scripts": {
  "init": "cross-env START_WITH=init node index.js",
  "start": "cross-env START_WITH=start node index.js",
  "update": "cross-env START_WITH=update node index.js",
  "generate-doc": "cross-env START_WITH=apidoc node index.js",
  "clean-doc": "find . -type f -name '_doc.js' -delete",
  "apidoc": "npm run generate-doc && apidoc -i api/ -o doc/ && npm run clean-doc"

Add dependencies

npm install --save c-core
npm install --save-dev apidoc
npm install --save-dev cross-env
2. Create index.js file
const core = require('c-core');
const cmd = process.env.START_WITH ? process.env.START_WITH : 'start';
try {
} catch (e) {
3. Configuration environment
cp .env.copy .env
4. Start application as development
npm run start

Now go to homepage http://localhost:3000

III. Add connection to database

1. Connection the MongoDB

Create file: api/database/mongo.json

  "driver": "mongoose",
  "connection": "mongodb://{HOST}:{PORT}/{DATABASE}",
  "options": {
    "useNewUrlParser": true,
    "useUnifiedTopology": true,
    "serverSelectionTimeoutMS": 5000

Add configuration to setting file: api/setting.json

"database": [
      "MONGO_DB_HOST": "localhost",
      "MONGO_DB_PORT": "27017",
      "MONGO_DB_NAME": "eco",
      "MONGO_DB_USERNAME": "",

2. Connection the MySQL or MariaDB

npm install --save mysql

Create file: api/database/mysql.json

  "driver": "mysql",
  "database": "[DATABASE]",
  "config": {
    "connectionLimit" : 10,
    "host"            : "[SERVER]",
    "user"            : "[USERNAME]",
    "password"        : "[PASSWORD]",
    "database"        : "[DATABASE]"

Add configuration to setting file: api/setting.json

"database": [
      "MYSQL_DB_PORT": "3306",
      "MYSQL_DB_SERVER": "localhost",
      "MYSQL_DB_DATABASE": "eco",
      "MYSQL_DB_USERNAME": "eco",
      "MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD": "eco"

3. Connection the SQL Server

npm install --save mssql

Create file: api/database/mssql.json

  "driver": "mssql",
  "database": "[DATABASE]",
  "connection": "Server=[SERVER],[PORT];Database=[DATABASE];User Id=[USERNAME];Password=[PASSWORD];",
  "config": {
    "user": "[USERNAME]",
    "password": "[PASSWORD]",
    "server": "[SERVER]",
    "database": "[DATABASE]",
    "connectionTimeout": 15000,
    "requestTimeout": 150000,
    "pool": {
      "min": 1,
      "max": 20,
      "idleTimeoutMillis": 30000
    "options": {
      "port": "[PORT]",
      "appName": "node-mssql",
      "encrypt": false,
      "useUTC": true

Add configuration to setting file: api/setting.json

"database": [
      "MSSQL_DB_PORT": "1433",
      "MSSQL_DB_SERVER": "\\sql2012",
      "MSSQL_DB_DATABASE": "eco",
      "MSSQL_DB_USERNAME": "sa",
      "MSSQL_DB_PASSWORD": "2008"

IV. How to test application

1. Output

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

    "gender": "male",
    "_id": "5e7115bd926d13129e9b1cdf",
    "username": "username",
    "email": "email@domain.com",
    "password": "password",
    "age": 65,
    "phone": "0999999999",
    "birthday": "2020-03-17T07:06:16.664Z",
    "salary": 1500.8,
    "avatar": "https://i.pinimg.com/originals/90/b0/b3/90b0b3b15ccecf9efda592b0bdf462aa.jpg",
    "last_ip": ""

Also when doing requests, it's good to know that:

  • If you make POST, PUT, PATCH or DELETE requests, changes will be automatically.
  • Your request body JSON should be object enclosed, just like the GET output. (for example {"name": "Foobar"})
  • Id values are not mutable. Any id value in the body of your PUT or PATCH request will be ignored. Only a value set in a POST request will be respected, but only if not already taken.
  • A POST, PUT or PATCH request should include a Content-Type: application/json header to use the JSON in the request body. Otherwise it will result in a 200 OK but without changes being made to the data.

2. Routes
