    funnelweb

    Tries to detect if a request is coming from a machine or a person using a regular expression. Bot and browser User-Agent strings sourced from useragentstring.com.

    Installation

    $ npm install funnelweb

    Usage

    Funnelweb just takes a user agent string and returns "true" if it's probably a bot, or "false" otherwise.

    var funnelweb = require('funnelweb')
     
    funnelweb('GoogleBot') // true 
    funnelweb('Google Chrome') // false 

    If you pass it an HTTP request object, it'll read the User-Agent header and do the same:

    var funnelweb = require('funnelweb')
      , http = require('http')
     
    http.createServer(function(req, res) {
      var response = funnelweb(req)
     
      if (bot) {
        res.end('you are a bot')
      } else {
        res.end('you are not a bot')
      }
    }).listen(3000)
