Using middlewares #

You can use middlewares to intercept the (req,res,next) objects before the controllers.

app.get('/home',middleware1 , (req,res) =>{ ... })
// Or for multiple middlewares
app.get('/home',[middleware1 , middleware2] , (req,res) =>{ ... })

However avoid using middlewares if possible, as it intercepts any and every request and slows it down.

Tip: use return res.end() or return next() #

It is important to use the return keyword in some cases to complete the execution of the function, sometimes when there is no return keyword, the preceeding code will run and may end up with errors.

Cors #

Use Cors to allow cross origin request.
