Express Flash

Flash Messages for your Express Application

Build Status

Flash is an extension of connect-flash with the ability to define a flash message and render it without redirecting the request.

Installation

Works with Express 3.x.x

npm install git://github.com/RGBboy/express-flash.git

Usage

Set it up the same way you would connect-flash:

  var flash = require('express-flash'),
      express = require('express'),
      app = express();

  app.use(express.cookieParser('keyboard cat'));
  app.use(express.session({ cookie: { maxAge: 60000 }}));
  app.use(flash());

Use req.flash() in your middleware

  app.get('/', function (req, res) {
    req.flash('info', 'Welcome');
    res.render('index', {
      title: 'Home'
    })
  });
  app.get('/addFlash', function (req, res) {
    req.flash('info', 'Flash Message Added');
    res.redirect('/');
  });

Access the messages in your views via locals.messages (.jade in this case):

  - if (messages.info)
    .message.info
      span= messages.info

Requires

  • cookieParser
  • session
