NAME

Routes::Tiny - Routes

SYNOPSIS

my $routes = Routes::Tiny->new;

# Constraints
$routes->add_route('/articles/:id', constraints => {id => qr/\d+/});

# Optional placeholders
$routes->add_route('/archive/:year/(:month)?');

# Defaults
$routes->add_route('/articles/:id',
    defaults => {controller => 'bar', action => 'foo'});

# Grouping (matches 'hello-bar')
$routes->add_route('/(:foo)-bar');

# Globbing (matches 'photos/foo/bar/baz')
$routes->add_route('/photos/*other');

# Path building
$routes->add_route('/:foo/:bar', name => 'default');
$routes->build_path('default', foo => 'hello', bar => 'world');

# Matching
my $match = $routes->match('/hello/world');
my $captures_hashref = $match->captures;

# Matching with method
my $match = $routes->match('/hello/world', method => 'GET');

# Subroutes
my $subroutes = Routes::Tiny->new;
$subroutes->add_route('/article/:id');
$routes->mount('/admin/', $subroutes);

DESCRIPTION

Routes::Tiny is a lightweight routes implementation.

Routes::Tiny aims to be easy to use in any web framework.

FEATURES

Constraints

$routes->add_route('/articles/:id', constraints => {id => qr/\d+/});

$match = $routes->match('/articles/1');  # Routes::Tiny::Match object
$match = $routes->match('/article/foo'); # undef

It is possible to specify a constraint that a placeholder must match using a normal Perl regular expression.

Optional placeholders

$routes->add_route('/admin/:service(/:action)?', defaults => {action => 'list'});

my $match = $routes->match('/admin/foo');
# $m->captures is {service => 'foo', action => 'list'}

It is possible to specify an optional placeholder with a default value.

Grouping

$routes->add_route('/(:foo)-bar');

$match = $routes->match('/hello-bar');
# $match->captures is {foo => 'hello'}

It is possible to create a placeholder that doesn't occupy all the space between slashes.

Globbing

$routes->add_route('/photos/*other');
$routes->add_route('/books/*section/:title');
$routes->add_route('/*a/foo/*b');

$match = $routes->match('photos/foo/bar/baz');
# $match->captures is {other => 'foo/bar/baz'}

$match = $routes->match('books/some/section/last-words-a-memoir');
# $match->captures is {section => 'some/section', title => 'last-words-a-memoir'}

$match = $routes->match('zoo/woo/foo/bar/baz');
# $match->captures is {a => 'zoo/woo', b => 'bar/baz'}

It is possible to specify a globbing placeholder.

Passing arguments AS IS

$routes->add_route('/', arguments => {one => 'two'});

$match = $routes->match('/');
# $match->arguments is {one => 'two'}

It is possible to pass arguments to the match object AS IS.

Path building

$routes->add_route('/articles/:id', name => 'article');

$path = $routes->build_path('article', id => 123);
# $path is '/articles/123'

It is possible to reconstruct a path from route's name and parameters.

Subroutes

$subroutes = Routes::Tiny->new;
$subroutes->add_route('/articles/:id', name => 'admin-article');
$routes->mount('/admin/', $subroutes);

$match = $routes->match('/admin/articles/3/');
# $match->captures is {id => 3}

It is possible to capture params in mount routes

$subroutes = Routes::Tiny->new;
$subroutes->add_route('/comments/:page/', name => 'comments');
$routes->mount('/:type/:id/', $subroutes);

$match = $routes->match('/articles/3/comments/5/');
# $match->captures is {page => 5}
# $match->parent->captures is {type => 'articles', id => 3}

Parent routes mounts names of children routes, so it's possible to buil path

$path = $routes->build_path('admin-article', id => 123);
# $path is '/admin/articles/123'
$path = $routes->build_path('comments', type => 'articles', id => 123, page => 5);
# $path is '/articles/123/comments/5/'

WARNINGS

Trailing slash issue

Trailing slash is important.

$routes->add_route('/articles');

# is different from

$routes->add_route('/articles/');

If you don't want this behaviour pass strict_trailing_slash to the constructor:

my $routes = Routes::Tiny->new(strict_trailing_slash => 0);

METHODS

new

my $routes = Routes::Tiny->new;

add_route

$routes->add_route('/:service/:action');

Add a new route.

mount

$routes->mount('/admin/', $subroutes)

Includes one Routes::Tiny instance into another with given prefix.

match

$routes->match('/hello/world');

Match against a path.

build_path

$pattern->build_path('name', {foo => 'bar'});

Build path from a given name and params.
