Express inspired mqtt development framework based on mosca for node


Express inspired mqtt development framework based on mosca for node.

var mors = require('mors')
var app = mors()
app.route('*', function (req, res) {
  console.log('received', req.topic, req.payload);
$ npm install mors
  • Full features from mosca
  • Express style usage
  • Usable inside ANY other node.js app
  • Supports node v0.10 ~ 0.12

The following settings will alter how Express behaves:

  • env Environment mode, defaults to process.env.NODE_ENV(NODE_ENV environment variable) or "development"

Assigns setting name to value.

Get setting name value.

Set setting name to true.

Set setting name to false.

Check if setting name is enabled.

Check if setting name is disabled.

Use the given middleware function (with optional mount path, defaulting to "*").

var mors = require('mors');
var app= mors();
// simple logger 
app.use(function(req, res, next){
  console.log('PUB %s', req.topic);
// respond 
app.use(function(req, res, next){
  res.publish(req.topic + '$reply', 'Hello World');

The app.VERB() methods provide the routing functionality in Express, where VERB is one of the PUB/SUB verbs (such as Multiple callbacks may be given; all are treated equally, and behave just like middleware.

This method functions just like the app.VERB() methods, however it matches all PUB/SUB verbs.

Returns an instance of a single route, which can then be used to handle PUB/SUB verbs with optional middleware. Using app.route() is a recommended approach for avoiding duplicate route names (and thus typo errors).

var app = mors();
.all(function(req, res, next) {
  // runs for all PUB/SUB verbs first 
  // think of it as route specific middleware! 
.subscribe(function(req, res, next) {
  // on subscribe 
.publish(function(req, res, next) {
  // maybe add a new event... 

Set authorizer for authenticating and authorizing the clients. The authorizer include three methods:

  • authenticate(client, username, password, callback)
  • authorizePublish(client, topic, payload, callback)
  • authorizeSubscribe(client, topic, callback)

More information: Authentication & Authorization

Bind and listen for mutt clients on the given host and port. This method is identical to mors.Server() witch inherits from mosca.Server.

var mors = require('mors');
var app = mors();

This property is an object containing properties mapped to the named route "parameters". For example, if you have the route /user/:name, then the "name" property is available to you as This object defaults to {}.

// ROUTE "/user/:name" with TOPIC "/user/ty"
// => "ty" 

More information: routes.js

The currently matched Route containing several properties (such as the route's path string, the params, and so on).

app.get('$user/:id?', function(req, res){

Example output from the previous snippet:

    params: {
        id: '1'
    splats: [],
    path: '$user/:id'

The topic of the request packet.

The payload of the request packet.

The qos of the request packet.

The retain of the request packet.

Set response topic.

Set response payload

Set response qos

Set response retain

Publish a response with the message.

res.topic('$foo/bar').publish('hello', cb);

Use the given middleware function, with optional mount path, defaulting to "*".

Middleware is like a plumbing pipe, requests start at the first middleware you define and work their way "down" the middleware stack processing for each path they match.

Currently this is treated equally, and behave just like use.
