express-noop

A middleware that does nothing, except execute the next middleware. Useful when you want to disable other middleware inside app.use.

You'll want to weigh the convenience this module provides with the additional performance implications.

Install

npm install express-noop --save

Usage

Using noop() without any arguments immediately executes next().

app.use(app.get('production') ? noop() : delay(1000));

Alternatively, passing condition and middleware will execute middleware if condition is true, otherwise the next() middleware is run.

// app.use(noop([condition], [middleware]));
// If condition is true, execute middleware, otherwise next();
app.use(noop(!app.get('production'), delay(1000)));

Both ways do essentially the same thing.

Example

var express = require('express');
var delay = require('express-delay');
var noop = require('express-noop');
 
var app = express();
 
app.set('production', process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production');
 
// Use noop() without arguments.
app.use(app.get('production') ? noop() : delay(1000));
 
// Or, wrap a middleware with noop().
app.use(noop(!app.get('production'), delay(1000)));
 
app.get('/', function(req, res, next){
  res.send('Hello, world!');
});
 
// ...
