Server Config


// see server-configuration for how the configuration should look like
const conf = require('./conf')
// create a liServer with your configuration
const liServer = require('@livingdocs/server')(conf)
const port = liServer.config.get('server:port')
liServer.listen(port, function (err) {
if (err) {
throw err
console.log('Listening on http://localhost:%s', port)


liServer.initialize((done) => {done()})

Initializes all features. Executes initialized hooks (see below) right before calling its callback.


liServer.listen(port, (done) => {done(err, server)})

Calls liServer.initialize() and then starts a web server under the provided port. Note: If you call liServer.listen() you must not call liServer.initialize() before.


liServer.registerInitializedHook((done) => {done()})

Hooks to be executed by liServer.initialize() right after all features have been initialized. This method is useful to configure features dynamically or register feature specific hooks. An example would be to register a publish hook on the documents feature.

liServer.registerInitializedHook((done) => {
done(/* err */)

You can register as many hooks as you'd like. They will be executed sequentially (and always in registration order), which means that no two hooks ever run in parallel and instead each hook waits until the previous one is done executing before running.
