httpdispatcher - basic dispatcher for node.js

httpdispatcher is a simple class allows developer to have a clear dispatcher for dynamic pages and static resources. Classes http.ServerRequest and http.ServerResponse earns new params property containing a map of received HTTP parameters. Using httpdispatcher is pretty simple:

    var HttpDispatcher = require('../httpdispatcher');
    var http           = require('http');
    var dispatcher     = new HttpDispatcher();


    dispatcher.onGet("/page1", function(req, res) {
        res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
        res.end('Page One');

    dispatcher.onPost("/page2", function(req, res) {
        res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
        res.end('Page Two');

    dispatcher.beforeFilter(/\//, function(req, res, chain) { //any url
        console.log("Before filter");, res, chain);

    dispatcher.afterFilter(/\//, function(req, res, chain) { //any url
        console.log("After filter");, res, chain);

    dispatcher.onError(function(req, res) {

    http.createServer(function (req, res) {
        dispatcher.dispatch(req, res);
    }).listen(1337, '');
    GET  /page1  => 'Page One'
    POST /page2  => 'Page Two'
    GET  /page3  => 404
    GET  /resources/images-that-exists.png => Image resource
    GET  /resources/images-that-does-not-exists.png => 404
