npm (scoped) npm

Detect bots among users in your tinyhttp app. This middlewares is based on isbot.

Note that it doesn't differentiate "good" and "bad" bots, it only shows if a request comes from a bot (e.g. crawler) or from a real human.


pnpm i @tinyhttp/bot-detector


botDetector()(req, res)

This middleware adds 2 new getters, isBot and botName.

  • isBot is a boolean which shows if the request is made by a bot
  • botName is a string that shows the bot name in case isBot is true.

Both getters are lazy and will not be calculated until needed


import { App } from '@tinyhttp/app'
import type { Response } from '@tinyhttp/app'
import { botDetector } from '@tinyhttp/bot-detector'
import type { RequestWithBotDetector } from '@tinyhttp/bot-detector'

new App<any, RequestWithBotDetector, Response>()
  .use((req, res) => {
    res.send(req.isBot ? `Bot detected 🤖: ${req.botName}` : 'Hello World!')
