Routes

Routing refers to determining how an application responds to a client request to a particular endpoint, which is a URI (or path) and a specific HTTP request method (GET, POST, and so on).

Each route can have one or more handler functions, which are executed when the route is matched.

Route definition takes the following structure:

app.METHOD(PATH, HANDLER)

Where:

  • app is an instance of express.

  • METHOD is an HTTP request method, in lowercase.

  • PATH is a path on the server.

  • HANDLER is the function executed when the route is matched.

Our server has following routes:

  • /auth for user authentication related routes

  • /user for user related routes

  • /apartment for apartments related routes

  • /messages for users chat related routes
