infra

Infrastructure provides simple, middleware-like infrastructure for your application startup.

Installation

npm install infra --save

Usage

Define initializers

  1. Initialize the database

    exports.description = "Postgres";
    exports.init = function(container, cb) {
        var pg = require('pg')
        // sanity check, ensure database can be connected
        pg.connect(container.config.postgres, cb);
    };
    
  2. Initialize express

    exports.description = "Express web server";
    exports.init = function(container, cb) {
            var app = require('express')();
            app.use(bodyParser.json());
            // register app with container
            container.app = app;
            cb();
        }
    };
    
  3. Initialize routes

    exports.description = "Express routes";
    exports.init = function(container, cb) {
        var app = container.app;
        app.get('/', function(req, res, next) {
            res.render('index');
        })
        cb();
    };
    

Use the initializers and start the app

var starter = require("infra")();
var container = {
    config: {
        postgres: "postgres://localhost/dev"
    }
};

starter.use(require("./database"));
starter.use(require("./expressPre"));
starter.use(require("./handlebars"));
starter.use(require("./expressPost"));
starter.use(require("./routes"));
starter.use(require("./processHandlers"));

starter.start(container, function(err) {
    if (err) trow err;
    container.app.listen(3000);
});

Tips

  1. Use your own logger

    var infra = require("infrastructure")(log.info.bind(log))
