Per the suggestion by @adamjmcgrath https://github.com/auth0/express-jwt-authz/pull/45, express-jwt-authz has been forked to support restify.
Pretty basic change to support Restify's response object. Currently I'm using restify with express-jwt and express-jwt-authz but ran into a failure when scope is unexpected:
TypeError: res.append is not a function
Obviously this is because of the difference in Express and Restify's response object functions. Otherwise I haven't run into issues and it would be great to continue using these libraries.
