Usage no npm install needed!

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


A Todo API

This is an example api to be used when making example todo apps. It can be used stand-alone or with an existing Express app.

But WHYYYYYY??????

I often want to test out some ideas with a front-end that actually talks to a backend, or with some sort of backend api archetecture that needs a few routes. I have used this for a few different things like this, so I figured I would clean it up and publish it for re-use.


$ npm install -g express-todo-api

CLI Usage

$ express-todo-api --help

  Usage: express-todo-api [options]


    -h, --help          output usage information
    -V, --version       output the version number
    -p, --port [port]   The server port
    -P --prefix [path]  The api route prefix

API Usage

var app = require('express')();
