DS = require "diving-squirrel"
app = new DS.App
app.start()

This usage will create the app with default options.

Error and user data from the onLoggedUser method. If cookie doesn't exist function is skipped. Default: Function just pass empty object to the callback

Templates

If you will use HTML responses, you should create layout.pug in the options.views directory. If the file doesn't exist template of the route is used.
Variables passed to the layout.pug:
title Title of the page created from the name of the page and name of the application.
name Application name.
styles List of styles loaded in the layout. It's taken from the options.styles.
scripts List of scripts loaded in the layout. It's taken from the options.scripts.
user Logged user.
content Content of the route template.

Templates for individual page routes must be in options.views directory and in directory named by the Page class name lowercased.

Creating page

Page = (require "diving-squirrel").Page

module.exports = class Home extends Page
	getScripts: -> ["/script/script.js"]
	getRoutes: ->
		[
			new Page.Route "/", (req, res, next) ->
				next no, new Page.HtmlResponse "home", "Home"
			new Page.Route "/json", (req, res, next) ->
				next no, new Page.JsonResponse data: "some data"
			new Page.Route "/login", (req, res, next) ->
				res.loginUser 1
				res.redirect "/"
		]

In this example home.pug must be in directory [options.views]/home => [options.views]/home/home.pug.

Template functions

Functions are passed to all templates in f variable.
link Page.link alias
date JS Date instance
