API Reference

resolve(model, options) ⇒ function

Configures and returns middleware listener which will resolve model instance from request params and assign it to "req.resolved" Object using lowercase name of the model, so such middleware:

...get('/foo/:vod', resolve(Vod))

You cannot alter this behavior
