For a restful hapi pipeline, with the conf below, after I generate a crumb and get it back as a cookie. When I submit a data request I get

Debug: internal, implementation, error 
    TypeError: Uncaught error: Cannot read property 'crumb' of null
    at generate (/Users/$ME/Developer/pipeline/node_modules/crumb/lib/index.js:159:34)

The index.js of the hapi server asks for this:

            register: require('crumb'),
            options: {
                restful: true
        (err) => {
            if (err) {
                throw err;

and the restful requests are

const env = require("../../config/environment"),
    httpreq = require('request');
module.exports = [
        method: 'GET',
        path: '/generate',
        config: {
          auth: false
        handler: function (request, reply) {
            return reply(
                { crumb: request.server.plugins.crumb.generate(request, reply) }
        method: 'PUT',
        path: '/crumbed',
        handler: function (request, reply) {
            console.log('crumb put has happened')
            return reply('../../node_modules/crumb/lib/index.js');
                   // it says crumb route, meaning this? 

(fun fact, I never see 'crumb put has happened' when PUT-ing to /crumbed, the 500 previously mentioned hits first).

Is this a bug with the generate function, or have I just royally failed to configure crumb?

your PUT route should now just be a normal route protected by crumb (no need to reply with that index.js file)

make sure your request to the PUT route (or any PUT, POST, DELETE, PATCH route) contains the header X-CSRF-Token: {value-you-got-from-generate-route}
