Delaying responses for resources by URL RegExp, for Koa server

NPM

Build status dependencies devdependencies

var koa = require('koa');
var slow = require('koa-slow');
var app = koa()
    .use(slow({
        url: /\.jpg$/i,
        delay: 2000
    }))
...
app.listen(4000);
$ curl http://localhost:4000/index.html  // 1 ms
$ curl http://localhost:4000/foto.jpg    // 2001 ms

Works with Koa server. If you need same feature for Connect or Express use connect-slow.

Why?

Controlled server-side delays allow to debug and polish website behavior, see Give browser a chance

install:

npm install koa-slow --save

slow down every requst by 1 second (default delay value)

var slow = require('koa-slow');
var app = require('koa')();
app.use(slow());
...

slow down JPEG images by 500ms, let everything else be served as quick as possible

var slow = require('koa-slow');
var app = require('koa')();
app.use(slow({
    url: /\.[jpg|jpeg]$/i,
    delay: 500
}))
...

slow down JPEG images by 1000ms, slow down JavaScript files by 100ms

var slow = require('koa-slow');
var app = require('koa')();
app.use(slow({
    url: /\.[jpg|jpeg]$/i,
    delay: 1000
}))
.use(slow({
    url: /\.js$/i,
    delay: 100
}))
...
  • connect-slow, same functionality for Connect / Express servers.
