run express as a dpd resource


use express as a dpd resource

In your project root, run:

mkdir node_modules
npm install dpd-express

There is only 1 event right now: init. Create it in the dashboard or include a folder like this:


Init is run when the resource is loaded. Inside init.js you get app which is a running express app. Handle anything like a normal express app:

app.get('/foo', function(req, res) {

or middleware

app.use(function(req, res, next) {
  req.called = 'my middleware';

In other resources, this will be available as ctx.req.called.

You also get access to the dpd object, bound to the current request.

Render some todos:

app.get('/foo', function(req, res) {
  req.dpd.todos.get(function(todos) {
    res.render('index.ejs', {todos: todos})

The request also comes with the me object if it exists.

app.get('/me', function(req, res) {

You can require() modules. They must be installed at the root of your project (/my-project/node_modules).
