Problem :

I am just starting coding using the nodejs with express. So I simply did this in my file test.js which is into my folder routes :

const myexpress = require('express');
const myrouter = new myexpress.Router();
myrouter.get('/test', (req, res) => {
res.send(`I am the test`);
module.exports = myrouter;

Then, inside my server.js :

const mytest = require('./server/routes/test');

But in the browser, it tells me it Cannot get/test

I don't understand why this is happening to me. Please let me know how can I fix this?

Solution :

A problem seems to be in how you are mounting your router. Looking at a router middleware API it seems you should be doing it as shown below.


const myexpress = require('express');
const myrouter = new myexpress.Router();
myrouter.get('/test', (req, res, next) => {
  res.send("I am the test");
module.exports = myrouter;


const myexpress = require('express');
const myapp = myexpress();
const mytest = require('./test'); 
app.use('/', mytest);


Below is the very simple fix that should resolve all your issues.

You need to Replace below code

const router = new express.Router();

With the following code.

const router = express.Router();

I hope you will be able to fix your error with the help of above given solutions.

Problem : I have recently updated the node to 7.2.1 and noticed that there is the warning coming as below : (node:4346) DeprecationWarning: Calling an asynchronous function without callback is deprecated. Why is this 4346 ? I only have 2000 lines of code in the js file, so it must not be the line-number. Where should I look for that code?
