Better way to format Express response

How It Works

  • You can use response with readable name like res.formatter.ok for 200 ok or res.formatter.badRequest for 400 bad request.
  • It will format your response in two ways success and error.
    • If response is 2xx, 3xx return response under object key data.
    • If response is 4xx, 5xx return response under object key error.
  • You can pass metadata as second parameter and it's will present under meta object key.

Usage

Installation

npm install express-response-formatter --save

Quick Start

Response for 200 Ok.

import app from 'express'
import { responseEnhancer } from 'express-response-formatter'

const app = express()

// Add formatter functions to "res" object via "responseEnhancer()"
app.use(responseEnhancer())

app.get('/success', (req, res) => {
  const users = [{ name: 'Dana Kennedy' }, { name: 'Warren Young' }]

  // It's enhance "res" with "formatter" which contain formatter functions
  res.formatter.ok(users)
})

app.listen(3000, () => console.log('Start at http://localhost:3000'))

Result

HTTP/1.1 200 Ok
{
  "data": [
    {
      "name": "Dana Kennedy"
    },
    {

    }
  ]
}
