ExpressJS Extras Package

This package contains extra middleware options for ExpressJS.

Currently it only contains 2, but I will be adding to them as I need them ;)

Installation

npm install express-extras

extras.fixIP

This middleware module attempts to normalize req.socket.remoteAddress and headers['x-forwarded-for'] into req.ip when working with a proxy (like nginx).

var extras = require('express-extras');
app.configure(function() {

    app.use(extras.fixIP());
    //Or
    app.use(extras.fixIP([
        'x-forwarded-for',
        'forwarded-for',
        'x-cluster-ip'
    ]));

});

extras.throttle

Attempts to throttle requests based on the number of times a given resource is accessed. Once the throttle is reached, a 403 is served to them for the holdTime (default 10 seconds) 127.0.0.1 is automatically whitelisted (for development, monit, nagios, etc..) Probably should be used with/after extras.fixIP so that the users real IP is sent to the throttle.

var extras = require('express-extras');
app.configure(function() {

    Use the defaults..
    app.use(extras.throttle());

    //Or supply a config object
    //The default config shown..
    app.use(extras.throttle({
      urlCount: 5,
      urlSec: 1,
      holdTime: 10,
      whitelist: {
          '127.0.0.1': true
      },
      errorCode: 403,
      errorHtml: '<html><title>403 Forbidden</title><body><h1>403 Forbidden</h1><p>Client denied by server configuration.</p></body></html>'
    }));

});
