    metalsmith-express

    express based middleware for metalsmith for local development and testing.

    By default, this will use express.static to serve your metalsmith built files. It also uses connect-livereload which works well in conjunction with metalsmith-watch for development purposes.

    To disable connect-livereload see options below.

    Usage

    var metalsmith        = require('metalsmith');
    var watch             = require('metalsmith-watch');
    var metalsmithExpress = require('metalsmith-express');
    
    metalsmith(__dirname)
      .use(metalsmithExpress())
      .use (
        watch({
          paths: {
            '${source}/**/*': true
          },
          livereload: true
        })
      )
      .build(function(err) {
        if (err) throw err;
      });

    Options

    {
      "liveReload": true,
      "liveReloadPort": 35729,
      "middleware": []
    }

    You may use express middleware by pushing it onto the middleware option array. Currently only the use(function(req,res,next)) convention is supported.

    var middleware = [];
    
    middleware.push(function(req, res, next) {
      console.log('Time:', Date.now());
      next();  
    });
    
    var metalsmithExpress = require('metalsmith-express')
    ({
      middleware: middleware
    });
