gateway

Node.js middleware to execute CGI scripts

Build Status

Purpose of this module is to allow development tools like Yeoman or Livestyle to serve PHP files (and possibly other scripting languages) directly.

To make this work you need the php-cgi binaray in your PATH.

Usage

var http = require('http');
var gateway = require('gateway');

var app = http.createServer(gateway(__dirname, {
  '.php': 'php-cgi'
}))

Usage with command line arguments

var http = require('http');
var gateway = require('gateway');

var app = http.createServer(gateway(__dirname, {
  '.php': ['php-cgi', '-d', 'auto_prepend_file=/path/to/auto_prepended.php']
  }
}))

Installing php-cgi

The php-cgi binary can be installed via Homebrew by tapping the homebrew-php repository:

brew tap homebrew/dupes
brew tap josegonzalez/homebrew-php
brew install php54

Directories

If the middleware encounters a URL that points to a directory, it will look for an index file matching any of the registered extensions. If the URL points to a valid directory but the path does not end with a slash, a permanent redirect is sent.

The gateway middleware doesn't support cgi-bin directories. If you want to serve CGI scripts with a shebang please use node-cgi instead.
