fastify-flash

CI NPM version Known Vulnerabilities js-standard-style

The flash is a special area of the session used for storing messages. Messages are written to the flash and cleared after being displayed to the user. The flash is typically used in combination with redirects, ensuring that the message is available to the next page that is to be rendered.

This plugin is inspired by connect-flash.

Install

npm install fastify-flash

Usage

Flash messages are stored in the session. First, we need to register the session plugin: fastify-secure-session.

const fastify = require('fastify')()
const fastifySession = require('fastify-secure-session')
const fastifyFlash = require('fastify-flash')

fastify.register(fastifySession, {
  // adapt this to point to the directory where secret-key is located
  key: fs.readFileSync(path.join(__dirname, 'secret-key')),
  cookie: {
    // options from setCookie, see https://github.com/fastify/fastify-cookie
  }
})
fastify.register(fastifyFlash)

fastify.get('/test', (req, reply) => {
  req.flash('warning', ['username required', 'password required'])

  const warning = reply.flash('warning')
  reply.send({ warning }) // {"warning":["username required","password required"]}
})

Note on session plugin

fastify-secure-session can be replaced by any session plugin as long as it:

  1. registers via the onRequest hook
  2. supports req.session as the session store

API

Set a flash massage(s)

Signature

req.flash(type: string, ...message: string[] | [string[]]): number

It can be called in three different ways:

  • req.flash('info', 'Welcome back')
  • req.flash('warning', ['username required', 'password required'])
  • req.flash('info', 'Hello %s', 'Jared') // will use util.format to format the string

req.flash returns the number of messages store with provided type.

Get a flash message(s)

signature

reply.flash(type?: string): { [k: string]: undefined | string[] } | string[]

It can be called in two different ways:

  • reply.flash() // returns all messages as object { [k: string]: undefined | string[] }
  • reply.flash('info') // returns array of messages that are stored with provided type
