diet-router

Simple, full featured, nestable router for diet.js

Supports all of diet's HTTP methods (namely get, post, put, patch, delete, and trace)

const server = require('diet')
const Router = require('diet-router')
 
const app = server()
Router.extend(app)
 
const router = Router()
 
app.route('/router', router)
 
router.get('/subroute', function ($) {
    $.end('response')
})
 
// accessible at /router/subroute

Add routes before or after calling route. This lets you write your routers in separate files

// router1.js
const router = Router()
 
router.get('/subroute', function ($) {
    $.end('response')
})
 
module.exports = router
// main.js
const router1 = require('./router1')
 
app.route('/route', router1)

If you don't want to extend diet's app object, you can skip calling Router.extend and call the router directly, passing the app object as the first argument

const router = Router()
router.get('/subroute', function ($) {
    $.end('response')
})
router(app, '/route')

Middleware

The router supports adding middleware to be run before each subroute. You can add it when calling Router or when calling app.route

const router = Router()
app.route('/path', function ($) {
    // this is middleware
    $.return()
}, barware, etcware, router)

Note that the router is the last argument passed

Alternatively:

const router = Router(fooware, barware, etcware)
app.route('/path', router)

Nested Routing

The router supports nesting a router within another router

const router1 = Router()
const router2 = Router()
 
app.route('/route', router1)
 
router1.route('/nested', router2)
 
router2.get('/subroute', function ($) {
    $.end('response')
})
// accessible at /route/nested/subroute

Middleware can be added anywhere along the chain

const router1 = Router()
const router2 = Router()
 
app.route('/route', fooware, router1)
 
router1.route('/nested', barware, router2)
 
router2.get('/subroute', bazware, function ($) {
    $.end('response')
})
 
// runs fooware, then barware, then bazware, and finally the function that returns the response
