In addition to the options you specify for each module in
app.js when configuring your project, all modules receive:
apos object, a singleton which provides core methods for content management. See the apostrophe module documentation.
app: the Express app object. You can add routes via
app.post, etc. at any time in your module's constructor. Our convention is to prefix routes with
/apos/modulename, where modulename is a short name for the module (
apostrophe-blog). This prevents conflicts with URLs used for pages.
pages object, a singleton which provides methods for dealing with the page tree. See the apostrophe-pages module documentation.
schemas object, a singleton which provides methods for dealing with schemas. You may wish to use this if your module handles form submissions and would like the same conveniences that fancy pages and snippets have. See the apostrophe-schemas module documentation.
nodemailer transport object, ready to send email as needed. See the nodemailer documentation.
site: an object containing
hostName properties, as configured in
app.js. We suggest using
shortName to name databases and other resources specific to your project.
modules: this is not what you think. See accessing other modules for the right way to access other modules.
