Lightweight Helpers for Connect/Express Applications

This module is intended to provide some common helper functions for NodeJS web applications leveraging the Connect/Express web servers.

  • respondJson() - Add .json(data, responseCode) method to 'res' objects in pipeline.

Middleware Types


Simple JSON response extension for outgoing response object which stringifies the specified object, sets the HTTP response code and content type headers:

const fiddleware = require('fiddleware');    

function doSomething(req, res) {
  // Return all of the JSONs.
    foo: 'bar'}, 200);

Please note that HTTP status code is defaulted to 200 if the second parameter is not passed.
