restify-namespace - simple route namespacing

Defining sub-routes is something that happens often. Why keep repeating yourself? restify-namespace makes it easy to define nested route prefixes to DRY up your routes.


npm install --save restify-namespace


Here is how you might define some routes:

var namespace = require('restify-namespace');
var app = restify.createServer();
namespace(app, '/api', function () {
    app.get('/thingys', thingysHandler);
    namespace(app, '/beep', function () {
        app.get('/boop', plunkHandler);

This would create the following routes:

GET /api/thingys
GET /api/beep/boop

Not Implemented

At the moment restify-namespace does not support regular expression subroutes. It will throw to warn you of this.
