restify is a smallish framework, similar to express for building REST APIs. For full details, see http://mcavage.github.com/node-restify.

Usage

Server

var restify = require('restify');

var server = restify.createServer({
  name: 'myapp',
  version: '1.0.0'
});
server.use(restify.acceptParser(server.acceptable));
server.use(restify.queryParser());
server.use(restify.bodyParser());

server.get('/echo/:name', function (req, res, next) {
  res.send(req.params);
  return next();
});

server.listen(8080, function () {
  console.log('%s listening at %s', server.name, server.url);
});

Client

var assert = require('assert');
var restify = require('restify');

var client = restify.createJsonClient({
  url: 'http://localhost:8080',
  version: '~1.0'
});

client.get('/echo/mark', function (err, req, res, obj) {
  assert.ifError(err);
  console.log('Server returned: %j', obj);
});
