express-redirect offers you simple and blazing fast redirection rules. Even very complex redirect rules don't take longer than 1 ms. It just comes down to concatenating strings.
Say goodbye to writing 10 lines of code for a plain redirection over and over again.
If you want redirections with fancy JS expressions, you should probably check out deviate.
This package isn't actively maintained anymore. It was written for express v3.x, but still seems to work with express v4.x. Use it at your own risk.
If you want to continue this project, ping me and I'll add you as an owner on npm.
$ npm install express-redirect
var express = require("express") , redirect = require("express-redirect"); var app = express(); redirect(app); // mount the plugin
// just a smple redirect app.redirect("/p/:id", "/page/:id"); // you want it permanent? app.redirect("/p/:id", "/page/:id", 301); // if you want to append the query string (?foo=bar) app.redirect("/p/:id", "/page/:id", 301, true); // no id, goto page # 1 app.redirect("/p/:id?", "/page/:id(1)"); // only redirect POST (for whatever reason) app.redirect("/contact", "/thanks", "post") // a bit more complex app.redirect( "/entry/:entry/comments/:action(view|edit|delete)?/:id([0-9]+)/:reply([0-9]+)?", "/entry/:entry/comments/:action(view)/:id/:reply?" ); // external redirects work too app.redirect( "/google/:query?", "https://www.google.de/?q=:query(Nyan+Cat)" );
express-redirect mounts the new method
app.redirect(route, target, [status], [method], [qsa]) to your app.
You can access it just like
route is a string and is required.
It can contain parameters like
It's basically just the same as a route you would pass to
target is a string and is required.
It can contain parameters like
? marks an optional parameter and
(someString) is a default value.
The parameters get replaced by their respective counterparts in the
app.redirect("/a/:id([0-9]+)?", "/b/:id(1)"); app.redirect("/c/:action(view|delete)?", "/d/:action?");
/a -> /b/1 /a/100 -> /b/100 /c -> /d /c/view -> /d/view
method is a string and is optional.
It is a VERB as in express' router.
It defaults to
qsa is a boolean and is optional. It defaults to
If set to
true, the query string will be appended. By default, it will be discarded.
