FLORouter

FLORouter is an URL routing library for macOS. It provides a simple and unified way to handle URL schemes in your Mac app by using a powerful block-based API.

Usage

Simple Registration

Router.global.register("/my/route") { request in
	let scheme = request.scheme
	// …
	return true
}

This example registers the route /my/route for all schemes using the shared Router instance global. You can retrieve the scheme used to open your app from the supplied request object.

Multiple Routes

let router = Router()
router.register(["/foo/bar", "/bar/foo"]) { request in
	let url = request.url
	// …
	return true
}

It’s possible to use multiple Router instances simultaneously. Here we create our own instance and register two routes at once which will both be handled by the same block.

Scheme Requirements

Router.global.register("/", for: "scheme-1") { request in
	// …
	return true
}
Router.global.register("/", for: "scheme-2") { request in
	// …
	return true
}

You can also require specific schemes. The first block will only be called for the URL scheme-1:// and the second for scheme-2://.

Parameters

Router.global.register("/view/:user“) { request in
	let user = request.parameters["user"]
	let referrer = request.parameters["referrer"]
	// …
	return true
}

When opening the URL myapp://view/foo?referrer=bar, the registered block would reveice foo as user parameter and bar as referrer parameter.

Wildcards

Router.global.register("/unknown/route/*") { request in
	let wildcardComponents = request.wildcardComponents
	// …
	return true 
}

In case you don’t know all possible paths beforehand you can register a wildcard route. The URL components found at the position of the wildcard can be retrieved using the wildcardComponents property of the request object. Be aware that wildcard routes will also me matched if the wildcard is empty. In this case the wildcardComponents property will be nil.

Requirements

FLORouter is written in Swift 4 but its public interface is 100% compatible with Objective-C. Requires macOS 10.9 or later.

Installation

Drop the FLORouter Xcode Project into your workspace and add the framework as a target dependency.
