FAQ

What is middleware?

Middleware is typically an array of functions that is run before executing 'business logic'. Function types include authentication, rate limiting, logging and more.

Why not use a framework for middleware?

Frameworks are a bundle of opinions. By splitting features off into separate modules (like this middleware module) users can compose their perfect framework. See http-framework for more modules in this spirit.
