In the current example, parameters are listed with an array instead of hash:

get "split/:string", { :params => [ "token" ], :optional_params => [ "limit" ] } do

However, it throws the following error: TypeError: can't convert Array into Hash

I have updated the example to use hashes and added a sample helper that performs parameter checking based on the provided information.

Maybe unwrap this line?

return unless route.route_params
