    fragments structures web applications with (request time) dependency injection

    hello-world.js is a minimal fragments app contained in a single file with only around 50 lines of code. when called with ./hello-world.js serve it starts a http server on the port that is set in the environment variable PORT. that server responds to http GET requests to path /hello-world with ContentType text/plain and body Hello world. it responds with status code 404 Not Found to all other requests.

    var factories = {
      server: function(
      ) {
        return sequenz([
      notFound: function(
      ) {
        return MIDDLEWARE(function(
        ) {
      endHelloWorld: function(
      ) {
        end200Text('Hello world');
      actionHelloWorld: function(
      ) {
        return GET('/hello-world', function(
        ) {
    // thats it for the application code !
    // below is just configuration boilerplate.
    // it's needed only once per app.
    var fragments = require('fragments');
    var hinoki = require('hinoki');
    var source = hinoki.source([
    var source = hinoki.decorateSourceToAlsoLookupWithPrefix(source, 'fragments_');
    var app = fragments(source);

    expect a detailed walkthrough soon.

    see the example app as well.
    entry point is example/app.
    there are integration tests for the example app.

    fragments builds on top of hinoki: effective yet simple dependency injection and more for Node.js and browsers
