Express Framework support for Node.js


Express is a back-end web application framework for building RESTful APIs with Node.js.


This extension, when ExpressJS library is found in the source code, may create the following objects:

Icon Object
NodeJS Get Operation
NodeJS Post Operation
NodeJS Put Operation
NodeJS Delete Operation
NodeJS Use Operation
NodeJS Any Operation

API methods

The supported Express API methods for handling routes and middleware are:

API method Object created Link type
app.get(path, callback) NodeJS Get Operation callLink, callback) NodeJS Post Operation callLink
app.put(path, callback) NodeJS Put Operation callLink
app.delete(path, callback) NodeJS Delete Operation callLink
app.all(path, callback) NodeJS Any Operation callLink
app.use(path, callback) NodeJS Use Operation callLink

When one of the supported API methods is found with a resolved handler function (callback), a callLink is created from the operation object to the handler.

Router object

The methods provided by Express for handling routes and middleware can also be used with a Router object. The same methods mentioned above are also supported in this context.


var express = require('express')
const app = express()
const router = express.Router()

router.get('/getPath', function (req, res) {
  res.send('Response for GET requests with path toto')
})'/postPath', function (req, res) {
  res.send('Response for POST requests')

router.put('/putPath', function (req, res) {
  res.send('Response for PUT requests')

router.delete('/deletePath', function (req, res) {
  res.send('Response for DELETE requests')

router.all('/allPath', function (req, res) {
  res.send('Response for ANY requests')

app.use('/home', router)

The code above will create the links and objects below:
