Scott goes through the solution to exercise 3.
- For app.param again, this is going to...…First we actually register app.param…before we register these routes.…Which is great.…That's adding it to the stack earlier.…If we put this below the routes,…then it wouldn't work regardless.…So we add it before the routes.…And then we have…it's looking for the parameter of the name of ID.…And then it passed our value…as a fourth argument here right?…And then what we do is we just do what we did before,…we just find the line with that ID.…
If it's a lion, attach it to req.lion, then call next.…If not then just, nothing.…Just send back to the client like,…"Uhh, that's not a real ID."…You set the status code to something else but, yeah.…Just respond back to the client, don't even go next.…The next one was create an error handler.…This is actually wrong 'cause it needs to be down here.…
Boom.…So error handler is just like we did last time.…It's a middleware function that takes in that require…for arguments with the error as the first one…and then just sends back an error here.…
