Connect 3.3.3

A high-performance middleware framework for the Node.js server-side JS platform, predominantly dealing with HTTP client-server connections
Connect was developed by Sencha Labs, the company behind tools like Sencha Touch and Ext JS.

The framework is nothing more than a very lightweight, but very versatile and powerful middleware for dealing with HTTP requests and responses.

Connect provides Node.js developers with low-level access to HTTP data, giving developers raw, unfiltered access to optimizing their application's performance on a Node.js server.

  • Logging HTTP requests

  • Gzip compression
  • Basic HTTP authentication
  • Request parsing
  • JSON parsing
  • Cookie parsing
  • Application/x-www-form-urlencoded parsing
  • Multipart/form-data parsing
  • querystring parsing
  • Favicon handling
  • Request body limiting
  • Error handling
  • Detecting and handling request timeouts
  • Session management
  • Cookie-based session management
  • Faux HTTP method support
  • Calculating response times
  • In-memory caching system
  • Static file streaming
  • Directory listing
  • Virtual host sub-domain mapping
