app.start(__dirname);

API

:eyes: Full specification.

app.start(path, opts) -> null

  • path (string) - Path to the app sources. To bootstrap (configure models, datasources and middleware) the app with some different setup than hume-app the one. Probably you should pass __dirname here. It can also receive an array with two elements.
  • opts ({}) - Optional parameters. (default: {})

      • disabled (boolean) - To disable it. (default: false)
      • methods ({}) - Methods to cache. The keys represent the model name and the value is a string of arrays with the method names, ie: { cat: ["find"] }. (default: {})

      • detectOnly (boolean) - Do not block the offender's origin, only detect it. (default: false)
      • breathe (number) - Time to free the memory, to avoid a huge memory fingerprint. All the IPs and users will be unblocked. In minutes, use 0 to disable. (default: 6 hours)
      • tor (boolean) - To detect tor exit nodes. (default: true)
      • tagId (string) - The field of the req object containing the user identifier. If it can't be found related controls are disabled. (default: "userId")
      • whitelist ({}) - To block any request excepting the one from the defined origins.
      • ips ([string]) - IP addresses.
      • users ([string]) - User identifiers.
      • admins (boolean/{}) - To whithelist the system adimistrators. (default: false)
        • tag (string) - The field of the req object containing a boolean meaning this user is an administrator. If it can't be found related controls are disabled. (default: "isAdmin")

        • user
        • custom
      • ratelimit (boolean/{}) - To avoid huge loads. (default: true)
        • maxInterval (number) - Excess os requests per interval causes earliest seen to drop, per instantiation. (default: 500)
        • ip (boolean/{}) - By IP address.
          • total (number) - Number of requests over timespan. (default: 10)
          • interval (number) - Time bucket (in seconds) (default: 60)
        • ipPort (boolean/{}) - By IP address/port.
          • total (number) - (default: 20)
          • interval (number) - (default: 60)
        • user (boolean/{}) - By user identifiers.
          • total (default: 50)
          • interval (default: 60)
      • crafted (boolean/{}) - To block requests with malicious content. Be carefull with this, RegExp are performance killers. (default: false) (still not implemented)

NOTE: If a model is "public" in this app it takes precedence over the another app using it. You have to put the one here to "false" and the other to "true" to make it public. It can seem a bit messy but it's a good thing because it allows to reuse also the "sharedMethods" definiton.

app.stop() -> null

Stop the LoopBack app, useful in tests.
