urld

URL handling for D

Motivation

D's standard library has nothing for working with URLs.

Vibe.d can work with URLs. However, Vibe is big. Also, we want to work easily with query strings, which vibe.d doesn't allow.

Status

There are some convenience accessors to add.

No backwards-incompatible changes are planned.

Installation

Add "urld": "~>2.0.1" to your dub.json.

Usage

Parse a URL:

auto url = "ircs://irc.freenode.com/#d".parseURL;

Construct one from scratch, laboriously:

URL url;
with (url) {
	scheme = "soap.beep";
	host = "beep.example.net";
	port = 1772;
	path = "/serverinfo/info";
  queryParams.add("token", "my-api-token");
}
curl.get(url);

Unicode domain names:

auto url = "http://☃.com/".parseURL;
writeln(url.toString);               // http://xn--n3h.com/
writeln(url.toHumanReadableString);  // http://☃.com/

Implicit conversion to strings for use with other libraries that expect URLs as strings:

import std.net.curl;
auto couchdbURL = "http://couch.local:8815".parseURL;
writeln(get(couchdbURL ~ "users/bob.dobbs@subgenius.org"));

Autodetect ports:

assert(parseURL("http://example.org").port == 80);
assert(parseURL("http://example.org:5326").port == 5326);

URLs of maximum complexity:

auto url = parseURL("redis://admin:password@redisbox.local:2201/path?query=value#fragment");
assert(url.scheme == "redis");
assert(url.user == "admin");
assert(url.pass == "password");
// etc

URLs of minimum complexity:

assert(parseURL("example.org").toString == "http://example.org/");

Canonicalization:

assert(parseURL("http://example.org:80").toString == "http://example.org/");
