Lunetas

Lunetas

A Rack based micro framework.

Structure

It is a class-url based framework. It means, that every class describes a route using a Regular Expression. It may respond to one or many HTTP methods. These responses are defined overwritting the methods get, put, post, delete, trace, head, etc.. It can also handle other non-native HTTP methods, using overwritting other_verb.

What does all these means? Checkout an example. (You can also take a look at the examples folder).

Usage

If you are going to use Lunetas as a stand alone Rack application. In order to get it running, you just need to add run Lunetas::Bag in your config.ru file.

If you are going to use Lunetas behind a framework like Rails. You just need to add the gem, require 'lunetas' in your metal, and you are ready to go.

Now with support for public assets, and templates. Check out the example under /examples/stand_alone_app, to see how it works!

Examples

Simple example

require 'lunetas'

class Testing
  include Lunetas::Candy
  matches '/hello/(\w+)', :name

  def before
    @name = @name.capitalize
  end

  def get
    "Hello #{@name}! #{params[:chunky]}"
  end

  def post
    "Hey #{@name}, I see you're testing the POST method :)"
  end
end

class AnotherTest
  include Lunetas::Candy
  matches '^/(\d+)$', :number

  def get
    "Is #{@number} your lucky number?"
  end

  def other_verb(verb)
    if verb == 'TEAPOT'
      "I ain't a teapot!"
    end
  end
end

Defining a custom ContentType

require 'lunetas'
require 'json'

class JaySon
  include Lunetas::Candy
  matches '^/something\.json$'
  set_content_type 'application/json'

  def get
    { :test => true, 'json' => "Yes, JSON", :amount => 1}.to_json
  end
end
