A modern and powerful server for Node.js

Server for Node.js

Simple and powerful server that just works so you can focus on your awesome project:

const server = require('server');
 
// Serve static files from /public on port 3000 
server();
 
// OR serve static files from the root on port 8080 
server({ port: 8080, public: './' });
 
// OR use some simple routes on http://localhost:3000/ 
const { get, post } = server.router;
server(
  get('/', ctx => ctx.res.render('index')),
  post('/', ctx => console.log(ctx.req.body))
);

Getting started

After getting Node.js ready and npm init, run this in your project folder to install the server:

npm install server --save

Then you can create a file called app.js and set the following:

// Include the server in your file 
const server = require('server');
const { get, post } = server.router;
 
// Initialize the server on port 3000 
server(3000,
 
  // Handle requests to the url "/" ( http://localhost:3000/ ) 
  get('/', ctx => ctx.res.send('Hello world!'))
);

Execute this in the terminal to get the server started:

node app.js

And finally, open your browser on localhost:3000 and you should see your server answered 'Hello world!'.
