evancz/url-parser had parseHash. It was removed.

In my case "Url-Routing" is not an option, because the http server is not under my control and will issue 404.

Parsing a url like http://localhost:3000/#/mydata/abe8e05f-e58a-4bfc-81e8-2081c7638407 is hacky. There is fragment. It returns Maybe String. There is no way to parse String with the library. Therefore the workaround shown is working, but not what anybody would want.

Are there alternatives without adding the functionality? If not, can we support hash routing again?


parseUrl : Url -> Maybe Route
parseUrl url =
    UrlParser.parse parseRoute (urlFragmentToPath url)

urlFragmentToPath : Url -> Url
urlFragmentToPath url =
    { url | path = Maybe.withDefault "" url.fragment, fragment = Nothing }
