Node WebServer

NodeJS web framework for learning purpose, somehow inspired by Express


The least possible, for now : none

Getting started

From src folder :

node main.js

Then in your browser : http://localhost:1234/

What's what

  • public/ contains all statics files exposed throw the static middleware
  • src/ contains everything else
    • nws "framework" source (for now)
    • routes contains modules that could be executed if a route match the requested url
    • shared routes, config...
    • views Templates

Route definition

module.exports = {

When the http://localhost:1234/some/route url is called through a GET request, then the module routes/index is required and the index method of that module is executed with the request and response parameters

If no route matches, the app sends back a 404 response
