@eljefedelrodeodeljefe thanks for the insight, i was getting really annoyed with the test not completing fully
Matt Forster
@CoreySwish I'm running the tests using mocha, in the end they are all the same to me, just test runners.
Corey Beaumont
How do you guys handle caching? Do you do this at the app level? At the gateway level? I’m looking at reddis vis aws elastiCache. Just looking for some ideas of implementations
Tim Branyen
@CoreySwish I'm currently dealing with that myself
Hooked in falcor to restify, but after messing with its router, way overkill. I'm looking at writing a basic memoizer with cache invalidation now
Corey Beaumont
ah I see. are you using a gateway to access the api or are your consumers hitting the restifyapp directly? I’m tyring to figure out if I implement at our gateway level (KONG) or at the restify level. I’m also just planning right now I’m averaging 100 calls per second per apache bench.
Tim Branyen
Well I'm trying to get an "isomorphic" universal app thing going, so I'll be hitting restify directly
We've abstracted "routes" and "requesters" so I may just integrate that in my requester layer
The docs mention httpsRedirector in the timers... is this available anywhere? I assume it auto-redirects from port 80 to 443 if necessary..?
Google didn't find anything...
Figured I'd share my final http/https code for anyone else interested. https://gist.github.com/avimar/73036af0a85982f88625, Feel free to steal it, I added an "unlicense".

Hello everybody !
Hope you can give me some hints. I have a ECONNRESET popping up from somewhere and that make NodeJS crash and restarted by PM2 :/
I have tried to find it in some Restify Client call with client.on('error', ...) and I have a server.on('uncaughtException', ...)
but at this point no more hints what is the cause :/ Longjohn module for long stacktrace doesn't help a lot
Error: read ECONNRESET
at exports._errnoException (util.js:874:11)

@ygrenzinger, sorted?
Yannick Grenzinger
hello @aalimovs I have sorted it by setting agent to false in restify JSON client. The other service doesn't like I try to maintain a connection.
finally same issue and fallback as discussed there restify/node-restify#485
So the problem is "resolved" but some questions remains ... is setting agent to false a not so bad things ? why client.error() doesn't catch anything ?
the last question is maybe the most worrying one
thanks a lot :)
Guilherme Viebig
hello all
is queryParser broke?

Hello everyone, is there a simple way to add different verbs to the same named route? like
restify.get({name: 'name', path: 'path'}, /.../).post(/etc/)
Also, any way to make hierarchical routes (i.e. handlers for routes inside routes)
Cristian Lupu
I noticed there are a lot of packages to create restify swagger docs, any recommendations ?
Cristian Lupu
your silence says it all… I should roll my own… /not :shipit:
@Khez I don't see much activity here, so no answer doesn't mean very much.
If you come across a nice doc'ing package that plugs into restify, please give me a shout.
Cristian Lupu
@avimar there are actually quite a lot, but each have particularities that are not as plug and play as I want them to be
I see the dependencies are out of date. Are there any problem with it?
hey, if anyone has any remote remote , designer, DevOps or Sysadmin jobs they can post them at http://webwork.io

What are the node versions supported by restify (latest 4.0.4)?
hello, I am having an issue where too many connections are being opened and closed. How do I control the number of connections? Ideally I would like to have one connection to the server and then stream all requests through that connection
Victor Augusto

Hello everyone.

I am looking for a someone's project to take a look at then I can follow the same project structure and patterns.


Victor Augusto
What's the best way to do something like this?
var mid = function(req, res, next) {
      where: {
        id: req.params.id
    }).then(team => {
      if (team) {
        req.team = team;
        return next();
      } else {
        res.send(404, 'Team not found');
    }).catch(err => {
      send(500, err);

// -----------------------------------------------

var getById = function(req, res, next) {
  mid(req, res, next);
  return next();

Hey all. Can you please advise me best oAuth2 server implementation (with SCOPES) for Express / Restify?
Yannick Grenzinger
@digitalmio passport ? have you look at it ? seems the standard for server auth
@augustovictor Seems fine to me. Only put directly the res.send(req.team); line in the mid(...) function ... but I think there is no typical "project structure and patterns" with restify (or I have missed something)
Yannick Grenzinger
BTW i'm a simple user of Restify. It could be better if the Restify team could answer the questions :)
Maciej Ziehlke
@ygrenzinger Thanks, but Passport is a oAuth Client. I’m looking for server.
Johan Vaage
I have a problem with mongoose.
When I try to return a validation error .send(400, err), to the client. The only thing that is sent through restify is
    "message": "User validation failed"
Even though the actuall object, err, is a much larger object

Does restify works with node version 6.0?
Justin Keller
@segmentationfaulter I'm using it with Node 6.1. There is a warning being thrown from a depend package though, see issue restify/node-restify#1067
Says due to be fixed in the next release of restify.

Hey there!
I am relatively new to using restify and had some questions on how to serve static files and not dork up the routes I have for my REST services.

server.get(/\/?.*/, restify.serveStatic({
    directory: 'static',
    default: 'index.html'

This setup here conflicts with my other routes that are now unreachable:

server.get({path : SURVEY_QUESTION_PATH, version : appVersion}, getLandingSurveyQuestions);
