Express middleware that redirects non-secure access to HTTPS (optimized for Azure and AWS).
When you deploy an express-based application to a cloud service such as Azure or AWS, you are not afforded a direct connection as you would when deploying to a server you control. Azure, for example, routes requests to your application via a named pipe instead of a port number.
This makes the determination of whether or not your users are accessing your site using HTTP versus HTTPS slightly more difficult. This simple module helps with that and redirects any non-secure traffic to an HTTPS connection.
By default, the
espress-https-redirectmodule does not redirect to HTTPS when running on a localhost as that is typically not secured with an SSL certificate. You can change this by setting the
redirectLocalhostparameter in your
$ npm install express-https-redirect --save
var express = require('express'); var httpsRedirect = require('express-https-redirect'); var app = express(); app.use('/', httpsRedirect());
If you also want localhost requests to be redirected, do the following:
