@nuxt/metal

Nuxt currently depends on connect, a lightweight middleware framework for Node. connect currently has 10 dependencies, some of which haven't had updates in a long time. All are still written in ES5-style JavaScript and some still try to specifically address Node 0.8 shortcomings.

- connect@3.6.6
  - debug@2.6.9
  - finalhandler@1.1.0
    - encodeurl@1.0.2
    - escape-html@1.0.3
    - on-finished@2.3.0
      - ee-first@1.1.1
    - statuses@1.4.0
    - unpipe@1.0.0
  - parseurl@1.3.2
  - utils-merge@1.0.1

@nuxt/metal is an attempt to provide a fully backwards-compatible rewrite of connect in modern JavaScript, with added support for async middleware and a restructured codebase with many simplifications, cleanups and idiomatic rewrites. All without compromising performance, if not improving it slightly.

Acknowledgement

This module is largely based on the work of TJ Holowaychuk, Douglas Christopher Wilson, Jonathan Ong and the awesome people at Joyent. This package is simply a massive restructuring of all original code, with only a few minor pieces removed and improved upon.
