END OF DEVELOPMENT NOTICE - This package has been discontinued

A tiny application and HTTP API framework for Express.js.

Supported implementations.

apes.js is written using async/await, which is available from Node 7.0.0 using --harmony_async-await flag.


Standalone application

To create a Node.js application which already takes care of logging, call the Application.execute and provide a main function.

The function will be called with a application object, which has a logger setup.

const apes = require('apes')

apes.Application.execute('confRoot', application => {
  // Do something here

HTTP Server

To create a fully working light-weight HTTP server, call HTTPServer.execute providing a root key in the package.json and a main function.

The function will be called with a server object, which has a express property to define routes.

const apes = require('apes')

apes.HTTPServer.execute('confRoot.http', server => {
  // Do something here - Core logic goes here, by adding routes to server.express
