Host multiple reviews in one app server.

Usage

First install review-host.

$ npm install -g review-host

Then create a directory for your host to live in.

$ mkdir review && cd review

Now create the reviews you wish to host. Check example/ for a complete example.

Each site (e.g. sites/bootstrap/index.js) needs to export a function that returns an express request handler that came from review().

Example:

module.exports = function (cacheDir) {
  return review()
    .sites({ google : 'http://google.com' })
    .cache({
      dir : cacheDir,
      expires : 60
    })
}
$ mkdir -p sites/bootstrap
$ vim sites/bootstrap/index.js
$ # ...

Finally start the server from your review-directory. It will now start serving all reviews in sites/.

$ review-host
review-host listening on port 8899
