Copperhead is a connect compatible router middleware that supports content negotiation.
npm install copperhead
The router object has a method for each HTTP method. Each method needs at least
a handler function that gets
res as parameters. If the function
returns nothing, the next middleware will be used. If the function returns a
string or object it will be used as response with an appropriate content type.
Optionally a method takes a path and a content type. The path variables are
exposed to the
this object of the handler.
router.method [path], [content type], (req, res, next) ->
So for example if we want to use the
GET method at the path
for the content type
text/html we would do
router.get '/users/:name', 'text/html', (req, res, next) -> 'Hello user '+@name+'!'
A more complete example
connect = require 'connect' router = require 'copperhead' app = connect() app.use connect.logger 'dev' app.use router router.get '/foo', -> 'bar!' router.get -> 'Hello World!' router.get 'application/json', -> hello: "World!" router.get 'text/html', -> '<!DOCTYPE html><html><head><title>Hello World!</title></head><body></body>Hello!</html>' app.listen 3000

router.route to create a custom route.
route takes the arguments
app = connect() app.use connect.logger 'dev' app.use router router.route 'custom', '/', '*/*', -> "I'm custom!" app.listen 3000
