A rich framework for building web applications and services. hapi is a simple to use configuration-centric framework with built-in support for input validation, caching, authentication, and other essential facilities. hapi enables developers to focus on writing reusable application logic instead of spending time building infrastructure. The framework supports a powerful plugin architecture for pain-free and scalable extensibility.

Build Status

Getting started

Start by creating a package.json:

npm init

Install hapi and have it saved to your package.json dependencies:

npm install hapi --save

Create an 'index.js' file and with the following contents:

var Hapi = require('hapi');

// Create a server with a host and port
var server = Hapi.createServer('localhost', 8000);

// Add the route
server.route({
    method: 'GET',
    path: '/hello',
    handler: function () {

        this.reply('hello world');
    }
});

// Start the server
server.start();

Launch the application (node .) and open 'http://localhost:8000/hello' in a browser.
