+ Here some examples::
+
+ @app.route('/')
+ def index():
+ pass
+
+ @app.route('/<username>')
+ def show_user(username):
+ pass
+
+ @app.route('/post/<int:post_id>')
+ def show_post(post_id):
+ pass
+
+ The :meth:`route` decorator accepts a couple of other arguments
+ as well:
+
+ :param methods: a list of methods this rule should be limited
+ to (``GET``, ``POST`` etc.)
+ :param subdomain: specifies the rule for the subdoain in case
+ subdomain matching is in use.
+ :param strict_slashes: can be used to disable the strict slashes
+ setting for this rule. See above.
