Node.js Tutorial for Beginners 16 - Basic Routing with node



var fs = require('fs');
var http = require('http');

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  console.log('requested url : ' + req.url);
  if (req.url === '/home' || req.url === '/') {
    res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type': 'text/html' });
    fs.createReadStream('index.html').pipe(res);
  } else if (req.url === '/api') {
    res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' });
    var jsonObj = {
      name: 'max',
      surname: 'tesar',
      age: 26
    };
    res.end(JSON.stringify(jsonObj));
  } else if (req.url === '/about') {
    res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type': 'text/html' });
    fs.createReadStream('about.html').pipe(res);
  } else {    
    res.writeHead(404, { 'Content-Type': 'text/html' });
    fs.createReadStream('404.html').pipe(res);
  }

}).listen(3000);

// Console will print the message
console.log("server is running on http://127.0.0.1:3000/")
