Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including buffet with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var buffet = require("buffet")

buffet

Static file server with in-memory cache

Usage

Middleware

Middleware version (compatible with connect, union/flatiron, middler, etc.)

var connect = require('connect')
  , app = connect()
  , buffet = require('buffet')({root: './public'}) // root defaults to ./public

app.use(buffet);
// (non-static routes here)
app.use(buffet.notFound);

var server = require('http').createServer(app);
server.listen(3000, function () {
  console.log('test server running on port 3000');
});

Easy built-in server

$ npm install -g buffet
$ cd /var/www/html && buffet

As a request handler

var server = require('http').createServer();
var buffet = require('buffet')(); // root defaults to ./public

server.on('request', buffet);

server.listen(3000, function () {
  console.log('test server running on port 3000');
});

Options

  • root: Document root. Can also be passed as the first parameter to buffet(). (Default: ./public)
  • indexes: True to look for options.index and serve it for directory requests. (Default: true)
  • index: Name of index file to look for. (Default: index.html)
  • watch: True to auto-update the buffer when files change. (Default: true)
  • notFoundPath: Path to be rendered on buffetMiddleware.notFound. (Default: /404.html)
  • defaultContentType: If the file does not have an extension, set this to specify the default Content-Type sent to the browser. This defaults to application/octet-stream.

Running your own benchmark

Type make bench in the buffet directory (you'll need siege installed).
