We recommend using express-scaffold as a server module. by require express-scaffold, you could build a fast and stable website in just 1min.

// require Server class 
var Server = require('express-scaffold');
 
// create app instance and chain all stuff together, 
// as you can see, express-scaffold injects models and ctrlers into 
// app instance, it is a convenience way to organize all resource and modules 
// which almost every route needs. 
new Server({
  name: 'My very first App',
  database: {
    name: 'appdb'
  }
})
.models(function(dbSchema) {
  // init models 
  // express-scaffold using `mongoose` to abstract data-models 
  // the object returned will be injected to `ctrlers` and `routes` functions 
  var userModel = new Schema({
    name: String,
    created: Date,
  });
  return {
    user: db.model('user', userModel)
  }
})
.ctrlers(function(modelsCtrler) {
  // init ctrlers 
  // express-scaffold will wrap all models into baseCtrler, 
  // which provides normal CRUS shortcuts function, e.g:  
  // var user = new Ctrler(model.user); 
  // user.create() 
  // user.findById() 
  return {
    user: new Ctrler(models.user)
  }
})
.routes(function(appctrlers) {
  console.log(app.locals.site.name + ' is running');
  // finally, we're going to make all route work, 
  // `routes` function contains all routes your app will invoke. 
  app.get('/users', function(reqresnext){
    // using `user` ctrler we made before to find all users, 
    // and response with JSON string. 
    ctrlers.user.find({}, function(errusers) {
      if (err) return next(err);
      res.json(users);
    });
  });
})
.run();
