tiny-router

0.1.5 • Public • Published

tiny-router

A simple routing library targeting embedded system where every byte counts. Right now there are few embedded systems running Javascript: Tessel, BeagleBone, RaspberryPi, and Espruino.

  • Currently testing on Tessel, Espruino, BeagleBone, and Raspberry Pi

Installation

npm install tiny-router

Features

  • Simple routing
  • Supports GET, POST, PUT, DELETE. It can be extended by using the methodAdd fn
  • Retrieving submitted data from the req.body object
  • Light weight, only 160 lines of code to get an express like experience

Methods

  • use: Allow to overwrite default values configurations: ('static', 'defaultPage') and default methods: ('readFile', 'fileExist') this is useful when different embedded system read the file system differently. Also it gives access to the request and response object before the routing tables are created.

        //Changing defaultPage
        router.use('defaultPage', 'default.html');
        //Setting a public folder
        router.use('static', {path: __dirname + '/public'});
       //Creating a URL logger
       router.use(function(req, res, next){
           console.log('URL: ', req.url);
           next();
       });
  • Router: Return the routing table created from the get, post, put, etc.. methods

        //Setting Routing table
        http.createServer(router.Router()).listen(3000);
  • listen(port): Return a instance of http.createServer(router.Router()).listen(port)

        //A simple way to create server
        router.listen(3000);
  • addMethod(method): Allow the extension of supported method from the supported list: (GET, POST, PUT DELETE)

        router.addMethod('TRACE');
     
        router.trace('/logs', function(req, res){
            res.send('this are traces');
        });
  • addMimeType(mimeObject): It extends the mime types supported by the server. It can use a third party mime type detector by overwriting the getMime method

        router.addMimeType({ext:'.mp4', mime:'video/mp4'});
  • getMime(file): Retrieves mime type

        var type = router.getMimeType('img.jpg');
  • send(msg): Sends data

        var body = ['<!DOCTYPE html>',
         '<html ng-app="tessel">',
            '<head>',
            '</head>',
         '<body style="background-color:#222;">',
         '</body>',
         '</html>'].join('\n');
     
         res.send(body);
  • sendImage(img): Sends an image

        res.sendImage(image);

Examples:


Tessel lights

var router = require('tiny-router'),
    tessel = require('tessel');
 
var lights = { 
    green: tessel.led[0], 
    blue: tessel.led[1], 
    red: tessel.led[2],
    amber: tessel.led[3]
};
 
router
    .get('/', function(req, res) {
        res.send('Simple light web API');
    })
    .get('/lights', function(req, res){
        res.send(lights);
    })
    .get('/green', function(req, res){
        var state = lights.green.read();
        lights.green.write(state);
        res.send({status: state});
    })
    .get('/green/{state}', function(req, res){
        var state = parseInt(req.body.state);
        lights.green.write(state);
        res.send({status: state});
    });
 
router.listen(8080);

Tessel Camera Module

var tessel = require('tessel'),
    router = require('tiny-router'),
    camera = require('camera-vc0706').use(tessel.port['A']);
 
router.get('/', function(req, res){
