AngularJS $resource bindings for express in node

Description

angular-rest is a node module that simplifies the use of angularjs $resource factory by creating the default set of resource actions for get, save, query, remove and delete.

It is best described by example. Suppose you have an angularjs service defined as follows:

var myServices = angular.module('myServices', ['ngResource'])

myServices.factory('Task', function($resource) {
	return $resource('api/tasks/:id', { id: "@_id" });
});

The myServices Task will, by default, now support get, save, query, remove and delete. The required endpoints can simply be routed via express by using the angular-rest module:

First create a task.js with the following details:

var task = { };

task.get = function(req, res) {
	res.json({});
};

task.save = function(req, res) {
	res.send(200);
};

task.query = function(req, res) {
	res.json([]);
};

task.remove = function(req, res) {
	res.send(200);
};

module.exports = task;

and then use angular-rest to bind it into express.

var angularRest = require('angular-rest'),
		express = require('express');

var app = express();

angularRest(app, '/api/1', 'task');

app.listen(3000);

This will bind the required endpoints through to task.js. Note that both 'delete' and 'remove' are routed to the 'remove' method.

If you wish to use middleware, then define the binding as follows:

var middleware = function(req, res, next) {
	return next(req, res);
};

angularRest(app, '/api/1', 'task', middleware);

If you don't want to support all of the default $resource actions, then just omit them from the object. In the example above, if you don't want to support remove then just define task.js as follows:

var task = { };

task.get = function(req, res) {
	res.json({});
};

task.save = function(req, res) {
	res.send(200);
};

task.query = function(req, res) {
	res.json([]);
};

module.exports = task;

You can now create includes for all of the $resource objects your angularjs services require and bind them in the same way.
