Express middleware to render a message and redirect with the meta refresh tag.

Most of the time a 3XX status code with a location header (i.e. res.redirect) works, but sometimes it will be just useful to render a message before redirecting.

Install

npm install rendirect

Usage


//install the middleware
app.configure(function(){
  this.use(rendirect());
});

//rendirect
app.get('/', function (req, res){
  res.rendirect({
      wait: 5, 
      message: 'redirecting to the login', 
      url: '/login'
  });
});

Custom template

  this.use(rendirect({view: 'myrendirectpage'}));
