sails-hook-responders

This is a installable sailsjs hook that attaches policy like methods, called responders, to controller actions.

Installation

npm install sails-hook-responders --save

Usage

Create your responders, in api/responders, with the signature

/**
 * Create users API token and add it to the response
 *
 * @param  {Object}   req     The request object
 * @param  {Object}   res     The response object
 * @param  {Object}   data    Data for the request. Global to all responders
 * @param  {Object}   options Response options, include what kind of response to send. Global to all responders
 * @param  {Function} next    [description]
 */
module.exports = function (req, res, data, options, next) {
  // Do something
  // Add any data you want sent back to the user to data object
  // For example,
  // data.response = 'Hi, this message was generated in a responder';
  // Set the type of response you want to be used
  // options.method = 'ok';
  // options is optional. By default it is set to `serverError` if there was an error,
  // else to `json`
  // If there is an error, call next with the error
  // next(err);
  var token;
 
  // Generate token
 
  data.token = token;
  next();
};

Map responders to controller actions in config/responders.js

/**
 * Mapping responders to a controller action
 * @type {Object} 
 */
module.exports.responders = {
  UserController: {
    // responders should be put in an array, in the order they are meant to be run
    create: ['generateApiToken', 'sendWelcomeEmail'],
    // though if you only have one responder for an action, you can just use a string
    delete: 'sendGoodbyeEmail'
  },
  ...
  ...
};

Return the responder in your controller action

A method, respond, is attached to the res object. It runs all the responders attached to a controller action and sends the response back to the user. If no responder has been attached, it will simply return res.ok

/**
 * User controller
 */
 
/**
 * The user controller
 * @type {Object} 
 */
module.exports = {
  create: function (req, res) {
    // create user
    var data = {
      id: user.id,
      name: user.name
    };
 
    // options is optional, and so is data
    return res.respond(data);
  },
 
  delete: function (req, res) {
    // delete the user
    var data = {
        id: deletedUser.id
        name: deletedUser.name,
        message: 'Sorry to see you go ' + deletedUser.name
      };
 
    // You can pass a custom callback to `res.respond`, which will be called after the responders have been run
    return res.respond(data, function (err, req, res, data, options) {
      return res.view('user/goodbye', data);
    });
  },
  ...
  ...
};
