Docs & Community

PROTIP Be sure to read Migrating from 3.x to 4.x as well as New features in 4.x.

Quick Start

The quickest way to get started with express is to utilize the executable express(1) to generate an application as shown below:

Install the executable. The executable's major version will match Express's:

$ npm install -g [email protected]

Create the app:

$ express /tmp/foo && cd /tmp/foo

Install dependencies:

$ npm install

Start the server:

$ npm start

View the website at: http://localhost:3000

Philosophy

The Express philosophy is to provide small, robust tooling for HTTP servers, making it a great solution for single page applications, websites, hybrids, or public HTTP APIs.

Express does not force you to use any specific ORM or template engine. With support for over 14 template engines via Consolidate.js, you can quickly craft your perfect framework.

Examples

To view the examples, clone the Express repo and install the dependencies:

$ git clone git://github.com/expressjs/express.git --depth 1
$ cd express
$ npm install

Then run whichever example you want:

$ node examples/content-negotiation

express's Issues

Async IO

As far as I can tell, you have a synchronous request handling.

Consequently, you will fail at

  • receiving any request body
  • integrating any type of backend

Just letting you know, because I am working on a node.js framework myself and did the exact same mistake at the beginning.

Profiling for views etc

Add some rendering hooks, only really needed
once we have ORM support so we can see what
is impacting performance

View caching mechanism

only cache in production env,
make sure that contrib view engines have options
to disable their own caching

Remove route eval()

With a bit of closure magic we should be able to provide utility functions
to routes without this. Also now we may consider:

get('/user/:id/:operation', function(id, operation){

})

Module init args

init args in module context.. and hooks in mod context so for example

use(DefaultContentType, 'text/html')
