create a http server with a patch route in typescript

To create an HTTP server with a PATCH route in TypeScript, you can use the popular web framework Express.js.

First, let's install the required dependencies:

npm install express body-parser

Then, create a new file called server.ts and add the following code:

import * as express from 'express';
import * as bodyParser from 'body-parser';

const app = express();

// Define the PATCH route
app.patch('/users/:id', (req, res) => {
  const userId =;
  // Handle the PATCH request here...
  res.send(`PATCH request for user with id ${userId} received`);

// Start the server
const port = 3000;
app.listen(port, () => {
  console.log(`Server started at http://localhost:${port}`);

In this example, we create an Express app, add the body-parser middleware to parse the request body, define a PATCH route for the /users/:id path, and handle the PATCH request in the route handler function. Finally, we start the server at port 3000.

To test the PATCH route, you can use a tool like curl or Postman to send a PATCH request to http://localhost:3000/users/123 (where 123 is the id of the user you want to update). The server should respond with a message confirming the PATCH request was received.

Happy coding!
