I noticed that req.session is undefined for resources but it works fine for manually added routes using app.get method

  GET /404

  heap after: 30.42mb / 107.30mb


  GET /

  memory rss: 0b
  memory vsize: NaNgb
  heap before: 18.28mb / 52.08mb
  heap after: 18.85mb / 52.08mb

/ is set through app.resource and /404 is set through app.get

ok, I got it wrong, req.session is undefined with app.get too, in the above example I didn't had /404 route set as I though I had app.use with a method as a param that handle's not found routes... strange that req.session is undefined... it used to work :S

it seems that if I setup resources before app.configure they work but they don't have req.session object (which is normal since the session is not yet initialized) if I setup resources after app.configure then I'm getting error when I try to load a url:

From what I understood so far from the debugging I did is that if you use app.enable('strict routing') with express-resource you'll have some un-expected behavior thus I disabled it (although I would prefer to have it enabled).

Regarding the Can't render headers after they are sent to the client. error message it was produced because of app.use(Gzippo.compress()) from gzippo module, I had to remove it for now and use the plain app.static() method but I would like to send gziped content...
