hapi-web-server

hapi-web-server

Route and controller definitions to use Hapi.JS to serve static content (html, css, js, images, etc) over the web. Kind of like express.static but for Hapi.JS.

Why Do You Need This?

Avoid using a templating engine or server-side generated html files. Hapi-web-server contains route and controller definitions for Hapi.JS, so you can avoid writing this straighforward and boilerplate like code by using the package.

Install

npm install --save-dev hapi-web-server

[Npm Link] (https://www.npmjs.com/package/hapi-web-server)

Content Folder Structure

On npm install the expected folder structure and index.html is created:

  • public
    • css
    • fonts
    • images
    • js
    • templates
    • index.html

You can get the routes and the controllers that will server the content with require('hapi-web-server'). See the code sample below on usage.

Sample Code

var Hapi = require('hapi');
 
var server = new Hapi.Server();
server.connection( { port: 3000, address: 'localhost'});
 
var webServerRoutes = require('hapi-web-server');
 
var apiRoutes = [
    {
        method: 'GET',
        path: '/',
        handler: function (request, reply) {
            reply('Hello, world!');
        }
    }
];
 
var routes = webServerRoutes.concat(apiRoutes);
 
server.route(routes);
 
server.start(function() {
    console.log('Server started at: ' + server.info.uri);
});
