firetruck

Not a web framework

firetruck

A simple, opinionated server unframework for getting stuff done.

var server = require('http').createServer();
var app = require('firetruck')(server);
 
// listen on port 3000 
server.listen(3000);
 

If you are using firetruck, then you are prototyping. There can be no other reason. This being the case the directory structure of your prototype probably looks something like the following:

|- client
   |- static
      |- index.html
   |- js
      |- app.js
|- server.js

Firetruck uses convention over configuration to save you writing boilerplate code, and will behave in the following way:

  • If it intercepts a request for a .js file, browserify will browserify it and spit out the result. No caching. JS files are sources from the client/js directory.

  • If it intercepts a request for a registered route, your handler will be invoked.

  • Otherwise, st will be used to serve static content from the client/static directory.

app('/index', function(reqres) {
  res.writeHead(200);
  res.write('hello');
  res.end();
});

Attach the firetruck application to the specified server instance

Detach from the specified server.

This is a helper to pass all .js files through the firetruck/browserify helper.
