blipp is a simple hapi plugin to display the routes table to console at startup. It organizes the display per connection so if you have multiple connections you can easily ensure that you've done your routing table correctly. This can be difficult to see otherwise.


Usage (Hapi v17)

'use strict';

const Hapi = require('hapi');
const Blipp = require('blipp');

const server = new Hapi.Server();

const init = async () => {
  await server.register(Blipp);
  // await server.register({plugin: require('blipp'), options: { showAuth: true }});

    method: 'GET',
    path: '/somepath',
    options: {
      auth: false,
      description: 'Description to display',
      handler: (request, h) => 'Something'
  await server.start();



The following options are available:

  • showAuth: Shows any hapi authentication scheme using server.auth.strategy. Default: false
  • showStart: Shows route information during startup of server. Default: true

The module also registers the 'info()' and 'text()' API methods:

var json = JSON.stringify(;

With showAuth:



  • 1.x = hapi 7.x
  • 2.x = hapi 8.x
  • 3.x = hapi 17.x
