Macadamia

Macadamia is a slightly more opinionated than Express. Express has so many quirky features that, while good, makes it feel more like a hassle than a help. I called it Macadamia because you need to be nuts to reinvent the wheel. Never the less, making a wheel can be a pleasurable experience especially when that wheel is so much better than the one before.

Installation

npm install macadamia

API

var Macadamia = require('macadamia');
var app = Macadamia('Name of App');
app.engine('rendering-engine');
app.set('views', '/path/to/views');
app.set('view engine', 'default view engine');
app.route(Macadamia.Route('static', ['GET', 'HEAD'], '**', Macadamia.module('static')({ <options> })));
app.listen(1234);

// Macadamia.Route(<name>, <method-match>, <path-match>, <handler>)
// function handler(req, res, callback) { … }
// function route_match(string) { return <true|false> }
