Makes routes first class objects in Sinatra.
Check out sinatra-contrib you are looking for other fancy Sinatra extensions.
# Gemfile gem 'sinatra-advanced-routes', :require => 'sinatra/advanced_routes'
If you are serving a modular application, register the extension manually :
require 'sinatra/base' require 'sinatra/advanced_routes' class Foo < Sinatra::Base register Sinatra::AdvancedRoutes end
require 'sinatra' require 'sinatra/advanced_routes' admin_route = get '/admin' do administrate_stuff end before do # Let's deactivate the route if we have no password file. if File.exists? 'admin_password' then admin_route.activate else admin_route.deactivate end end first_route = get '/:name' do # stuff end other_route = get '/foo_:name' do # other stuff end # Unfortunatly first_route will catch all the requests other_route would # have gotten, since it has been defined first. But wait, we can fix this! other_route.promote
require 'some_sinatra_app' SomeSinatraApp.each_route do |route| puts '-' * 20 puts route.app.name # "SomeSinatraApp" puts route.path # that's the path given as argument to get and akin puts route.verb # get / head / post / put / delete puts route.file # "some_sinatra_app.rb" or something puts route.line # the line number of the get/post/... statement puts route.pattern # that's the pattern internally used by sinatra puts route.keys # keys given when route was defined puts route.conditions # conditions given when route was defined puts route.block # the route's closure end
Some of that fields (like conditions or pattern) can be changed, which will take immediate effect on the routing.
