kill9([options])

Returns a function middleware to use with express.use. Once installed you can kill the process typing "kill sentence" in the navigator.

Example:

http://thesite.kom/kill-9?pid=12345
option type default value details
statement text "kill-9" The statement that you must type in the url.
pid integer process.pid The pid value that you must pass in the pid parameter. By default kill-9 uses the real pid obteined from pid property of process object: process.pid
log boolean false If log is set kill-9 show a console.log when it is installed. You can send true or a message.
statusKilled integer 200 The status sent in the response for the case of success.
location url The location for a redirect. This is mandatory if statusKilled between 300 and 303.
messageKilled text "kill -9 success" The message to display in successful kills.
statusBad integer 404 The status sent when the pid doesn't match.
locationBad url The location for a redirect. This is mandatory if statusKilled between 300 and 303.
messageBad text "kill -9 unknown" The message to display when when the pid doesn't match.
process object process The process option is for test purpose. You can pass a mock object.
app.use(kill9({log:"remember to delete in production"}));
 
// Supose that exists getMode(). This is better
if(getMode()=='develop'){
    app.use(kill9({log:true}));
}
app.use(kill9({statusKilled:301, location:'other_site.kom'}));
app.use(kill9({messageKilled: "I'll be back"}));
app.use(kill9({messageBad: "Not foud"}));
function ProcessMock(){
    this.pid=444;
    this.codeRecived=null;
    this.exit=function(code){
        this.codeRecived=code;
    }
}
 
var pm=new ProcessMock();
test_app.use(
    kill9({process:pm})
).get(
    'kill-9?pid=444'
).then(function(){
    assert.equal(mp.codeRecived, 444);
});

Notes

  • This is not secure in production servers. Use it only in developer servers. Kill-9 lacks of password or validate user or any way for confirm legal use.
  • Actually options.pid can be a text, but I don't know if this will change in the future.
