Getting Started

Bogart can be installed via npm. npm install bogart

Alternatively, clone the git repository. git clone git://github.com/nrstott/bogart.git

Hello World in Bogart

Make a directory: mkdir hello-world

Create the following file:

app.js

var bogart = require("bogart");

var site = bogart.router(function(get, create, update, del) {
  get('/', function(req) { 
    return bogart.html("hello world"); 
  });

  get("/:name", function(req) {
    return bogart.html("hello " + req.params.name);
  });
});

bogart.start(site);

Start your app: node app.js

Visit it in a web browser at http://localhost:8080. Visit the route that says hello to you by name at http://localhost:8080/bob

Running the Examples

In the 'examples' directory of the cloned source, there are several examples of bogart applications.

Hello World

The hello world example demonstrates a basic bogart applications. The application has a route, /hello, that takes a name as a parameter in the request URL. The application responds with 'hello '

> cd examples
> node hello-world.js

Visit the application in your web browser at http://localhost:8080/hello/jim

Mustache Template with Layout

This example demonstrates usage of the mustache templating engine and a mustache layout. A layout is a page designed to hold other templates to avoid duplication of content.

> cd examples/mustache-layout
> node app.js

Visit the application in a web browser at http://localhost:8080/

Haml

Haml is an optional dependency of bogart. Please install it via npm install haml if you wish to use this templating engine.

The Haml sample demonstrates a haml view without a layout.

> cd examples/haml-view
> node app.js

Visit the application in a web browser at http://localhost:8080/

Middleware

Bogart comes with a variety of standard JSGI middleware appliances (not enabled by default).

Serve Static Files

The static example demonstrates using bogarts Directory middleware to serve an image.

> cd examples/static-server
> node app.js

Visit the application in a web browser at http://localhost:8080/. You should see the image.

ParseJson

Parses the body of any request with an "application/json" content-type. The value of request body is reassigned with the parsed value.

ParseForm

Parses the body of any request with an "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" content-type. The value of request body is reassigned with the parsed value.

Flash

Provides Ruby-esque 'flash' variables, good only for the next request cycle. Flash session tracking and flash data is stored via encrypted cookies by default. These providers can be overriden with the Flash middleware options. An example flash data provider implementation with a Redis backend is available here: https://github.com/jdc0589/bogart-flash-redis

Gzip

Gzip compresses the response and assigns the proper content-encoding;

MethodOverride

Checks for the _method parameter or X-HTTP-METHOD-OVERRIDE header to override the HTTP method.

Error

Translates rejected promises to a JSGI error response.
