memorex.js

Record your Node.js server's responses and play them back later

Who is memorex.js useful for?

memorex.js is for anyone who can benefit from faster, semi-realistic but not necessarily 100% up-to-date and accurate server responses. Typical uses involve testing or developing in any one of the following scenarios

  • modules that transform server responses
  • view components that display data from server responses
  • styling

You never want to use memorex.js in production or when you're testing the code that creates your responses (database adapters for example).

Technical overview

memorex.js is simple cache middleware that uses the file system as the store. This will work with any Node.js server that internally leverages http.Server (Express & Restify included).

Installation

npm i memorex -SE

Use

import Memorex from 'memorex'
import API     from './lib/api'


const memorex = Memorex({
  // [optional] the type of compression to save the responses with
  compression : Memorex.CompressionTypes.deflateRaw,
  
  // [required] enables your to toggle caching with a flag
  enabled     : process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production',
  
  // [optional] allows you to control the name of the subfolder this reponses are stored in. Defaults to `require('paqman').packageJSON.name`
  name        : 'API'
  // See index.js for more options
}).middleware


const memrx = memorex(/* see index.js for options */)

server.get('/api/tortas', memrx, API.getTorta)
