jinx

A stripped down web framework for node

Meant as a drop in replacement for express without view rendering, named routing, or error handling.

var app = require('jinx');
app.set('message', 'Hello Bro!');

app.get(/^/$/, function(req, res) {
  res.end(app.set('message'));
});

app.post(/^/echo$/, function(req, res) {
  res.send(req.body);
});

app.get('/^middle$/, function(req, res, next) {
  console.log('Malcolm is here');
  next();
}, function(req, res) {
  res.send('Middleware works');
});

app.listen(3000);

TLDR;

  • Routes are always treated as regular expressions.
  • req.body support for application/json and application/x-www-form-urlencoded POSTs.
  • Method override can be used to send PUT/DELETE.
  • req.header for accessing headers.
  • req.param for accessing parameters.
  • req.send detects payload type and encodes accordingly.
  • Access logs with timing information.
  • app.set(key, value)
