dpd-express

use express as a dpd resource

install

In your project root, run:

mkdir node_modules
npm install dpd-express

events

There is only 1 event right now: init. Create it in the dashboard or include a folder like this:

/my-project
 /resources
  /express
   /init.js

Init is run when the resource is loaded. Inside init.js you get app which is a running express app. Handle anything like a normal express app:

app.get('/foo', function(req, res) {
  res.send('bar');
});

or middleware

app.use(function(req, res, next) {
  req.called = 'my middleware';
  next();
});

In other resources, this will be available as ctx.req.called.

You also get access to the dpd object, bound to the current request.

Render some todos:

app.get('/foo', function(req, res) {
  req.dpd.todos.get(function(todos) {
    res.render('index.ejs', {todos: todos})
  });
});

The request also comes with the me object if it exists.

app.get('/me', function(req, res) {
  res.send(req.me);
});

You can require() modules. They must be installed at the root of your project (/my-project/node_modules).
