Now Framework for NodeJS

Need to update these


  1. Create actions that extend src/Action/AbstractAction.ts or implement src/Action/ActionInterface.ts
  2. Put the src/Decorator/Route.ts decoration on your actions.
  3. Run ./node_modules/.bin/buildNowJson path/to/my/actions
    • For monolithic apps, have this installed in the sub-repo, and run ./api/node_modules/.bin/buildNowJson api/src/Route as an example

Ideally, you'd be able to just add something to your now config, but until they support now.js, that wont be possible


// api/src/Route/HelloAction.ts

import {AbstractAction, Route} from '@secretary/now-node-framework';

@Route('/api/hello/(.*)', '?name=$1')
export default class HelloAction extends AbstractAction {
    public invoke(): Promise<void> {
        return this.send('Hello ' + this.request.query.name);

And then this gets auto-generated
