class Messages {

this.messages = [];
this.currentId = 0;

// Return the list of all messages
return this.messages;
async get(id, params) {
// Find the message by id
const message = this.messages.find(message => === parseInt(id, 10));
// Throw an error if it wasn't found
if(!message) {
throw new Error(`Message with id ${id} not found`);
// Otherwise return the message
return message;

// Create a new object with the original data and an id
// taken from the incrementing `currentId` counter
const message = Object.assign({
id: ++this.currentId
}, data);
return message;
async patch(id, data, params) {
// Get the existing message. Will throw an error if not found
const message = await this.get(id);
// Merge the existing message with the new data
// and return the result
return Object.assign(message, data);
async remove(id, params) {
// Get the message by id (will throw an error if not found)
const message = await this.get(id);
// Find the index of the message in our message array
const index = this.messages.indexOf(message);
// Remove the found message from our array

// Return the removed message

// This creates an app that is both, an Express and Feathers app
const app = express(feathers());
// Turn on JSON body parsing for REST services
// Turn on URL-encoded body parsing for REST services
app.use(express.urlencoded({ extended: true }));
// Set up REST transport using Express
// Set up an error handler that gives us nicer errors
// Initialize the messages service by creating
// a new instance of our class
app.use('messages', new Messages());
// Export the wrapped application as the 'handler' method
module.exports.handler = serverless(app);
