WebWebWeb

The zero-dependency alternative to ExpressJS. We built the Comfiest Way to make web APIs and static file servers live on Twitch for Coding Cafe!

WebWebWeb lets you create a web server with APIs SUPER EASILY in just a few lines of code.

If you need a secure web server with SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt, check out WebWebWebs which will automatically retrieve and renew them for you while maintaining the simplicity of WebWebWeb!

Instructions

  1. Install webwebweb
npm install webwebweb --save
  1. Start the server on a port (e.g. 8099). Any HTML pages (e.g. index.html) can be placed in the root directory / and static files (e.g. images, scripts, and other HTML pages) can go into /web or /public and it will be served automagically in http://locahost:8099/web or http://localhost:8099/public
require( "webwebweb" ).Run( 8099 );
  1. (Optional) Add APIs
var ComfyWeb = require( "webwebweb" );
ComfyWeb.APIs[ "/" ] = ( qs, body, opts ) => {
  return { "test": "example!" };
};
ComfyWeb.Run( 8099 );

Options

The Run() function in WebWebWeb accepts several optional parameters:

  • useCORS (default: true)
  • Certificate
  • PrivateKey
  • CertificateChain

Handling POST/PUT/DELETE requests

All request methods are sent to the API handler. You can check the opts.req.method value to response accordingly and parse the body object for data.

var ComfyWeb = require( "webwebweb" );
ComfyWeb.APIs[ "/account" ] = ( qs, body, opts ) => {
    switch( opts.req.method ) {
        case "GET":
            return { "account": "test" };
        case "POST":
            return JSON.parse( body );
        case "PUT":
            return { "status": "updated" };
        case "DELETE":
            return {};
    }
};
ComfyWeb.Run( 8099 );

Reading Request Headers

The request object is passed in to the API handler. You can check for header values in opts.req.headers.

var ComfyWeb = require( "webwebweb" );
ComfyWeb.APIs[ "/" ] = ( qs, body, opts ) => {
    return opts.req.headers;
};
ComfyWeb.Run( 8099 );

Enabling CORS

Actually, CORS is enabled by default. To disable CORS, set the useCORS parameter:

var ComfyWeb = require( "webwebweb" );
ComfyWeb.Run( 8099, {
    useCORS: false
} );

Using SSL Certificates

To add TLS support, pass in the paths to your Certificate, Key, and Certificate Chain files:

var ComfyWeb = require( "webwebweb" );
ComfyWeb.Run( 8099, {
    Certificate: "cert.pem",
    PrivateKey: "key.pem",
    CertificateChain: "chain.pem"
} );
