Restify App

Docs for version v0.2.0.

Restify App is a thin wrapper around Restify functionality. Aims to provide easy to write routing and server logic along with a useful seamless promise adapter for async functions on the routing system.

Get Started

  1. Add to your project with: npm i restify-app.
  2. In your code:
// lib/main.js
const { AppServer } = require('restify-app');

module.exports = function init(conf){

    let app = new AppServer(conf);

    // Expose objects to all routes.
    app.expose({ db: myDbConnection });

    app.route(({ get, post /*, del ... */ }) => {

        // Use restify routes and a list of functions (async or regular no matter).
        post('/foo/:f/bar',, Bar.write);

    // Handle all application exception you may wish to throw.
    app.on('error', function(req, res, err, send){

        if( == 'FooBarError')
            send('BadRequest', 'My foo is baring');


    // Perform server initialization logic.
    app.beforeStart = async function(){
        await myDbConnection.connect(conf.dbData);

    // Perform server finalization logic.
    app.afterStop = async function(){
        await myDbConnection.close();

    // Don't forget to return your app.
    return app;

And a binary for running as CLI.

// bin/my-app.js

const { run } = require('restify-app');
const init = require('../lib/main');
run({ init: init, confPath: 'my/conf/file.toml', confType: 'toml' });

// You can use CONF_FILE env var to determine conf path instead of parameter.
