Jumps in your middleware and extends route requests with references

Installation

npm install request-extend

Methods

reqExtend([namespace,] object [, force]); Merges object's keys and values with a routes request variable, which optionally can be contained under a property of namespace. force defaults to true, and controls whether or not object values should overwrite properties already on the request variable.

Usage

var
  express = require( 'express' ),
  reqExtend = require( 'request-extend' ),
  app = express.createServer();

var
  models = {
    user : require( './models/user' ),
    data : require( './models/data' )
  },
  config = require( './config' );

app.configure(function () {
  app.set( 'views', __dirname + '/views' );
  app.set( 'view engine', 'jade' );
  app.use( reqExtend( 'models', models ));
  app.use( reqExtend( 'config', config ));
  app.use( express.static( __dirname + '/public' ));
  app.use( app.router );
});

Adds req.models.user, req.models.data and req.config to all requests in your routes.

app.get( '/users', function ( req, res, next ) {
  res.render( 'users', { users: req.models.user });
});
