Express is one of the most popular web frameworks for Node.js - probably used by most Node.js developers. It's an excellent framework that has a myriad of HTTP utility methods, and it also performs well. When working with Express, we get access to a request and a response object, and we can use the latter to send some response back to the.
Express.js Routing. Routing is made from the word route. It is used to determine the specific behavior of an application. It specifies how an application responds to a client request to a particular route, URI or path and a specific HTTP request method (GET, POST, etc.).
Express.js Response Object. The Response object (res) specifies the HTTP response which is sent by an Express app when it gets an HTTP request. What it does. It sends response back to the client browser. It facilitates you to put new cookies value and that will write to the client browser (under cross domain rule).Express provides a handy method to transfer a file as attachment: Response.download(). Once a user hits a route that sends a file using this method, browsers will prompt the user for download. The Response.download() method allows you to send a file attached to the request, and the browser instead of showing it in the page, it will save it to disk.How to fetch data in React? React's ES6 class components have lifecycle methods. The render() lifecycle method is mandatory to output a React element, because after all you may want to display the fetched data at some point. There is another lifecycle method that is a perfect match to fetch data: componentDidMount().
The res object in Express.js, short for response, gives you a simple interface to respond to HTTP requests.In this article, we’ll cover the most important parts of res. Check-out this sister post if you’re interested in the req counterpart for access to information about the request. Basics of res res.send. send is perhaps the most well-known method that’s used on res.Read More

This is how Express handles a GET request (READ operation) in a nutshell. At this point, you probably have realized that you need to restart your server whenever you make a change to server.js. This is process is incredibly tedious, so let’s take a quick detour and streamline it by using a tool called nodemon. Enter Nodemon. Nodemon restarts the server automatically when you save a file that.Read More
Database integration Adding the capability to connect databases to Express apps is just a matter of loading an appropriate Node.js driver for the database in your app. This document briefly explains how to add and use some of the most popular Node.js modules for database systems in your Express app.Read More
You should see the response of User added with ID: 4, and you should be able to view the new list of users. Conclusion. In this tutorial, we learned how to hook up an Express server to a MySQL database and set up routes that correspond to the GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE methods for paths and dynamic route.Read More
The response object has a method text() that takes the raw data contained in the response body and turns it into plain text — the format we want it in. It also returns a promise (which resolves to the resulting text string), so here we use another .then(), inside of which we define another function that dictates what we want to do with that text string.Read More
GET and POST is two common HTTP Requests used for building REST APIs. Both of these calls are meant for some special purpose. As per the documentation GET requests are meant to fetch data from specified resource and POST requests are meant to submit data to a specified resource. LIVE DEMO DOWNLOAD. Express framework provides router() method to create HTTP endpoints.Read More
On top of that, you have used a built-in Express middleware to make the data available in the request's body object. So far, we have only imported third-party Express middleware (CORS) or used a built-in Express middleware (body parser) -- both on an application-level. Now, let's build a custom Express middleware ourselves, which will be used.Read More
We keep receiving requests, but end up not storing them anywhere. We need a Database to store the data. For this, we will make use of the NoSQL database called MongoDB. To install and read about Mongo, follow this link. In order to use Mongo with Express, we need a client API for node.Read More
