deviate

Redirecting middlware for express or node.js

  • supports ert syntax
  • supports a function that takes req and returns the path
  • uses res.redirect if it's used with express
  • falls back to manually writing the header elsewhere

Build Status Dependency Status NPM version

Usage

var deviate = require('deviate');

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

app.get('/random', deviate(function (req) { return '/post/' + Math.random(); }));

app.get('/page/:no/next', deviate('/page/[Number:no + 1]'));
app.get('/page/:no/prev', deviate('/page/[Number:no - 1]'));

app.get('/:number', deviate(301, '/post/:number'));

app.listen(3000);

API

deviate([status,] path)

Deviate takes an optional status (which defaults to 302) and a path or function. It then returns a middleware function which takes req and res and redirects res to the path.
