Usage

This module contains helper functions to convert common http(s) servers to functions suitable for running in a webtask.

Example

This example shows how you can transform an entire express server into a function suitable for using in a webtask.

webtask.js

var Express = require('express');
var Webtask = require('webtask-tools');
var server = Express();

server.use(require('body-parser').json());

// Create
server.post('/', function (req, res) {
    createInMongo(req.webtaskContext.data.MONGO_URL, req.body, function (err, data) {
        if (err) return res.status(500).send("Error creating record.");
        
        res.json(data);
    });
});

// Read
server.get('/', function (req, res) {
    fetchDataFromMongo(req.webtaskContext.data.MONGO_URL, function (err, data) {
        if (err) return res.status(500).send("Error reading record.");
        
        res.json(data);
    });
});

// Update
server.put('/', function (req, res) {
    updateInMongo(req.webtaskContext.data.MONGO_URL, req.body, function (err, data) {
        if (err) return res.status(500).send("Error updating record.");
        
        res.json(data);
    });
});

// Delete
server.del('/', function (req, res) {
    removeFromMongo(req.webtaskContext.data.MONGO_URL, function (err, data) {
        if (err) return res.status(500).send("Error removing record.");
        
        res.json(data);
    });
});

// Expose this express server as a webtask-compatible function

module.exports = Webtask.fromExpress(server);

API

Runner.fromConnect(connectServer)

Alias: Runner.fromExpress

Returns a function that will inject a single request into the supplied server with the 3-argument webtask signature:

function (context, req, res) {}

The webtask context object will be available as req.webtaskContext from within route handlers.

Runner.fromServer(httpServer)

Alias: Runner.fromRestify

Returns a function that will inject a single request into the supplied server with the 3-argument webtask signature:

function (context, req, res) {}

The webtask context object will be available as req.webtaskContext from within route handlers.

Runner.fromHapi(hapiServer)

Returns a function that will inject a single request into the supplied server with the 3-argument webtask signature:

function (context, req, res) {}

The webtask context object will be available as request.webtaskContext from within route handlers.
