Download a file from Node.js Server using Express

Introduction:

In this tutorial, we are create Node.js Express example that provides Rest API to download file to Client.

The res.download() function transfers the file at path as an ‘attachment’. Typically, browsers will prompt the user to download.

Syntax:

res.download(path [, filename] [, options] [, fn])

When an error occurs or transfer is complete, the method calls the optional callback function fn. This method uses res.sendFile() to transfer the file.

The optional options argument passes through to the underlying res.sendFile() call, and takes the exact same parameters.

var express = require('express');
var app = express();
  
app.get('/download', function(req, res){
  const file = `${__dirname}/upload-folder/foo.mp4`;
  res.download(file); 
});
  
app.listen(3000, function(err){
    if (err) console.log(err);
    console.log("Server listening on Port", 3000);
});

As shown in above code snippet if someone requested to “/download” API then server will send foo.mp4 file to the client.
