With services you can create REST-like services without binding it to some content. Place a controller.js file within a named folder under the services folder and this will be accessable with a fixed url:


Where module is the module name (without version) and name is the name of the service.

Here’s a simple service that increments a counter and returns it as JSON.

var counter = 0;

exports.get = function(req) {


  return {
    body: {
      time: new Date(),
      counter: counter
    contentType: 'application/json'
