co-express is an express wrapper that enables generators to be used as middlewares.

NPM version Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

Usage

co-express lets you write your express routes by using generator functions as middlewares. Like this:

var fs = require('mz/fs');
var express = require('express');
var wrap = require('co-express');

var app = express();

app.get('/', wrap(function* (req, res) { var packageContents = yield fs.readFile('./package.json', 'utf8'); res.send(packageContents); }));

app.listen(8000);

You can also define multiple generator functions just the express way, as long as you wrap them and call

next()
:
app.get('/users', wrap(function* (req, res, next) {
  req.users = yield db.getUsers();
  next();
}), wrap(function* (req, res) {
  res.send(req.users);
}));

Usage with other libraries

Starting from v2, you can pass your own wrapper function as a second argument.

This argument will be used instead of

co.wrap
.

The support of this wrapper library when used with this extra argument is untested and may vary from library to library.

Installation

$ npm install co-express
