Simple (dumb?) request router for Strelka::App-based applications.



A Hash, keyed by Regexps, that contains the routing logic

Public Class Methods

new( routes=[], options={} )

Create a new router that will route requests according to the specified routes. Each route is a tuple of the form:

  <http_verb>,    # The HTTP verb as a Symbol (e.g., :GET, :POST, etc.)
  <path_array>,   # An Array of the parts of the path, as Strings and Regexps.
  <route>,        # A hash of routing data built by the Routing plugin
# File lib/strelka/router/default.rb, line 24
def initialize( routes=[], options={} )
        @routes = {|hash, path| hash[path] = {} }

        routes.each {|r| self.add_route( *r ) }


Public Instance Methods

add_route( verb, path, route )

Add a route for the specified verb, path, and options that will return action when a request matches them.

# File lib/strelka/router/default.rb, line 43
def add_route( verb, path, route )
        re = Regexp.compile( '^' + path.join('/') )

        # Add the route keyed by path regex and HTTP verb
        self.routes[ re ][ verb ] = route
not_allowed_response( allowed_verbs )

Build an HTTP Allowed header out of the allowed_verbs and throw a 405 response.

# File lib/strelka/router/default.rb, line 88
def not_allowed_response( allowed_verbs )
        allowed_verbs << :HEAD if allowed_verbs.include?( :GET )
        allowed_hdr = {|verb| verb.to_s.upcase }.join( ', ' )
        finish_with( HTTP::METHOD_NOT_ALLOWED, 'Method not allowed.', allow: allowed_hdr )
route_request( request )

Determine the most-specific route for the specified request and return the UnboundMethod object of the App that should handle it.

# File lib/strelka/router/default.rb, line 53
def route_request( request )
        route = nil
        path  = request.app_path || ''
        verb  = request.verb

        path.slice!( 0, 1 ) if path.start_with?( '/' ) # Strip the leading '/'
        self.log.debug "Looking for routes for: %p %p" % [ verb, path ]
        match = self.find_longest_match( self.routes.keys, path ) or return nil
        self.log.debug "  longest match result: %p" % [ match ]
        routekey = match.regexp

        # Pick the appropriate route based on the HTTP verb of the request. HEAD requests
        # use the GET route. If there isn't a defined route for the request's verb
        # send a 405 (Method Not Allowed) response
        verb       = :GET if verb == :HEAD
        verbroutes = self.routes[ routekey ]
        route      = verbroutes[ verb ] or not_allowed_response( verbroutes.keys )

        # Inject the parameters that are part of the route path (/foo/:id) into
        # the parameters hash. They'll be the named match-groups in the matching
        # Regex.
        route_params = match.names.each_with_object({}) do |name, hash|
                hash[ name ] = match[ name ]

        # Add routing information to the request, and merge parameters if there are any
        request.params.merge!( route_params ) unless route_params.empty?

        # Return the routing data that should be used
        return route

Protected Instance Methods

find_longest_match( patterns, path )

Find the longest match in patterns for the given path and return the MatchData object for it. Returns nil if no match was found.

# File lib/strelka/router/default.rb, line 102
def find_longest_match( patterns, path )

        return patterns.inject( nil ) do |longestmatch, pattern|
                self.log.debug "  trying pattern %p; longest match so far: %p" %
                        [ pattern, longestmatch ]

                # If the pattern doesn't match, keep the longest match and move on to the next
                match = pattern.match( path ) or next longestmatch

                # If there was no previous match, or this match was longer, keep it
                self.log.debug "  matched: %p (size = %d)" % [ match[0], match[0].length ]
                next match if longestmatch.nil? || match[0].length > longestmatch[0].length

                # Otherwise just keep the previous match
                self.log.debug "  kept longer match %p (size = %d)" %
                        [ longestmatch[0], longestmatch[0].length ]
