Rack::Router

A simple router for rack apps. Requires Ruby 1.9+.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rack-router'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rack-router

Usage

Here's an example showing a simple rack app that prints the value of a route parameter:

require 'rack/router'
require 'rack/lobster'

hello = ->(env) do
  [
    200,
    { "Content-Type" => "text/html" },
    ["<h1>Hello, #{env['rack.route_params'][:name]}</h1>"]
  ]
end

router = Rack::Router.new do
  get "/hello/:name" => hello
  get "/lobster" => Rack::Lobster.new, :as => "lobster"
end

run router

In this example, hello is just a rack app defined inline, in order to give us something to route to. The route to our hello app includes a parameter :name. The hello rack app is able to access that parameter via the rack env.

This is a valid Rackup file, so if you put this in a file named config.ru and run rackup, you will be app to hit the application like this:

$ curl http://localhost:9292/hello/paul
<h1>Hello, paul</h1>

Don't forget to try the lobster!

$ open http://localhost:9292/lobster
