Express middleware for Pjax with redirect

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import expressPjaxRedirect from '';



Express middleware for pjax with redirect.
Adapted from


npm install express-pjax-redirect


In order to use the middleware you must configure express.

var express = require('express')
var pjax    = require('express-pjax-redirect')
var app     = express()


// body parser
// compression
// etc

You can simply substitute res.render with res.renderPjax, it takes the same arguments:

// Render the partial "example" and pass it the username  
app.get('/', function(req, res) { 
    res.renderPjax('partials/example', { username: "testing" }); 

In case of a redirect, in a middleware, for instance, you can use res.redirectPjax like so:

// example of isLoggedIn middleware to make sure a user is logged in
module.exports = function(req, res, next) {
    // if user is authenticated keep going
    if (req.isAuthenticated())
        return next();
    // if they aren't redirect them to the login page
    res.redirectPjax('partials/login', { newUrl: '/login' });

res.redirectPjax takes a required view, and optional options and callback. If the options object contains a newUrl, the address bar on the client side will be updated to use that string (in the above case /login), else the view path will be used.
