    Bellowed is the init code in my plugin

    plugin.http = {};
    plugin.http.get = function(req, res, next) {
    	res.render('myview', {});
    };
    plugin.init = function(data, callback) {
    	data.router.get('/api/myview', plugin.http.get);
    	callback();
    };
    

    code in plugin.json

    "library": "./library.js",
    	"hooks": [
    		{
    			"hook": "static:app.load", "method": "init"
    		}
    	],
    	"staticDirs": {
    		"static": "./static"
    	},
    	"less": [
    		"static/myview.min.less"
    	],
    	"templates": "templates"
    

    the templates/myview.tpl is quite simple with static HTML 'Hello nodebb'


    Works well when access the page from navigation bar. But the title is missing, it's still 'Home'

    Any outstanding I should do Or I did it in a wrong way?


  • Admin

    You have to define a /api/myroute and /myroute so F5 works as well. You can use the helper class from routes.

    Check this out https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/blob/master/src/routes/helpers.js#L5

    Usage

    var helpers = require.main.require('./src/routes/helpers');
    plugin.init = function(data, callback) {
        helpers.setupPageRoute(data.router, '/myview', data.middleware, [], plugin.http.get);
        callback();
    };
