Greenkeeper badge

js-standard-style Build Status

middie is the module that add middlewares support on steroids to Fastify.

The syntax style is the same as express/connect. Does not support the full syntax middleware(err, req, res, next), because error handling is done inside Fastify.

If you want to see how use this module with Fastify, check here.

Install

npm install middie --save

Usage

const Middie = require('middie')
const http = require('http')
const helmet = require('helmet')
const cors = require('cors')

const middie = Middie(_runMiddlewares)
middie.use(helmet())
middie.use(cors())

http
  .createServer(function handler (req, res) {
    middie.run(req, res)
  })
  .listen(3000)

function _runMiddlewares (err, req, res) {
  if (err) {
    console.log(err)
    res.end(err)
    return
  }

  // => routing function
}

Keep the context

If you need it you can also keep the context of the calling function by calling run with run(req, res, this), in this way you can avoid closures allocation.

http
  .createServer(function handler (req, res) {
    middie.run(req, res, { context: 'object' })
  })
  .listen(3000)

function _runMiddlewares (err, req, res, ctx) {
  if (err) {
    console.log(err)
    res.end(err)
    return
  }
  console.log(ctx)
}

Restrict middleware execution to a certain path(s)

If you need to run a middleware only under certains path(s), just pass the path as first parameter to use and you are done!

Note that this does support routes with parameters, e.g. /user/:id/comments, but all the matched parameters will be discarded

// Single path
middie.use('/public', staticFiles('/assets'))

// Multiple middleware
middie.use('/public', [cors(), staticFiles('/assets')])

// Multiple paths
middie.use(['/public', '/dist'], staticFiles('/assets'))

// Multiple paths and multiple middleware
middie.use(['/public', '/dist'], [cors(), staticFiles('/assets')])

To guarantee compatibility with Express, adding a prefix uses path-to-regexp to compute a RegExp, which is then used to math every request: it is signficantly slower.
