nor-api -- Simple API library for Node.js

Warning! This code is experimental and in state of preliminary development. Use at your own risk.

It's under MIT-style open source license -- see

You can install it simply from NPM:

npm install nor-api

Here's an example HTTP service:

var config = require('nor-config').from(__dirname);
config._def('port', 3000);
var api = require('nor-api');
api.createServer(config, {
    'hello': 'world',
    'date'function() {
        return ''+new Date();

It has resources at locations:

  • http://localhost:3000/ -- The index page which returns an object describing the resources.
  • http://localhost:3000/hello -- Returns "world"
  • http://localhost:3000/date -- Returns current date
  • http://localhost:3000/version -- Automatically prepared object giving version information

Once running, the HTTP service will be available at http://localhost:3000.

See also nor-config for more details about the configuration.
