    WebApi-skeleton is a stack based on nodejs, mongodb, restify, mongoose & other open source technologies. The main goal of this project is to help a developer to create a webapi. To build a REST-api you can start with this skeleton and extend it later with your own code.

    How to use

    First of all you need to install mongodb, nodejs and npm to use this module.


    This project is packaged als npm-package. so the installation is easy.

         npm webapi-skeleton --save

    Register REST-routes

    Check file /config/routes.json in this module to understand how it works.

    In webapi-skeleton you configure REST-routes in a JSON-File. This Example shows how to bind a REST-Endpoint '/hello' with a parameter ':name' to a control ${controls}/'hello.js'. Webapi-skeleton resolves the ${controls}-variable as a path to controls.


        "routes" :  [
                "entry" : "/hello/:name",
                "method" : "get",
                "control" : "/hello"

    Register mongoose schema

    Check file /config/database/*.schema.json in this module to understand how it works.

    Start server

           // import
           var Skeleton = require( "webapi-skeleton" );
           // setup
           var app = Skeleton.bootApp( {
               "config"   : __dirname + "/../config",
               "controls" : __dirname + "/../impl/controls",
               "mongodb"  : "mongodb://localhost/restAPP",
               "schema"   :  __dirname + "/../config/database"
           }, tables );
           // start
  function(app) {
               // callback after initialization.
