This is a JSON API serializer for Fortune.js, which implements all of the features in the base specification, and follows the recommendations as much as possible.

const http = require('http')
const fortune = require('fortune')
const fortuneHTTP = require('fortune-http')
const jsonApiSerializer = require('fortune-json-api')

// `instance` is an instance of Fortune.js.
const listener = fortuneHTTP(instance, {
  serializers: [
    // The `options` object here is optional.
    [ jsonApiSerializer, options ]
// The listener function may be used as a standalone server, or
// may be composed as part of a framework.
const server = http.createServer((request, response) =>
  listener(request, response)
  .catch(error => { /* error logging */ }))
