Server Request for racer

Request data from racer server. Can be used with racer or derby

Install

$ npm i racer-server-request

Using

You need to connect plugin for Store and Model. You will get store.serverRequest.register and model.serverRequest methods.

Warning!

model.serverRequest can be used only with model.fetch.

server/index.js example

var derby = require('derby');

derby.use(require('racer-server-request').storePlugin());

store = derby.createStore({
  listen: server
});

/*
 * You have `this.session` and `this.done()` context
 */
store.serverRequest.register('tumblrInfo', function(param1, param2) {
  var done = this.done;

  if (this.session.name === param1)
    tumblr.get('/user/info', function(err, data) {
      done(err, data);
    });
  else
    done('Access denied', null);
});

app/index.js example

var derby = require('derby');

derby.use(require('racer-server-request').modelPlugin());

var app = derby.createApp(module);

app.get('/', function(page, model, params, next) {
  var serverRequest = model.serverRequest('tumblrInfo', 'param1', 'param2');

  model.fetch(serverRequest, function(err, scopedInfo) {
    model.ref('_tumblrInfo', scopedInfo);
    page.render();
  });
});
