as a module

yep, you can do that:

var www = require('unpm-www')
 
var server = www('http://registry.npmjs.org')
server.listen(8999) // tada! 

api

unpm_www(registry, prefix, title, static) -> httpServer

  • registry is the location of the npm-like registry you wish to use for package data, default is 'http://localhost:8123'
  • prefix will put all routes behind that given prefix
  • title is simply the title for the page header, default is 'unpm'
  • static is a directory with files to override static files

extending

you are given access to the router for you to add your own routes if you would like. or override them.

router is an instance of unpm-router, which works pretty much like you would expect a router to.

something like this:

var www = require('unpm-www')
 
var router = www.router
 
router.add('get', '/ping', ping)
 
function ping(req, res, route, config) {
  res.end('pong')
}
 
www().listen(1337)
  • route holds information like routes
  • config is a configuration object, currently with keys: "registry" and "prefix" (as explained above)

notes

works with any npm-compatible registry.
