NAME

MojoX::Routes - Always Find Your Destination With Routes

SYNOPSIS

    use MojoX::Routes;

    # New routes tree
    my $r = MojoX::Routes->new;

    # Normal route matching "/articles" with parameters "controller" and
    # "action"
    $r->route('/articles')->to(controller => 'article', action => 'list');

    # Route with a placeholder matching everything but "/" and "."
    $r->route('/:controller')->to(action => 'list');

    # Route with a placeholder and regex constraint
    $r->route('/articles/:id', id => qr/\d+/)
      ->to(controller => 'article', action => 'view');

    # Route with an optional parameter "year"
    $r->route('/archive/:year')
      ->to(controller => 'archive', action => 'list', year => undef);

    # Nested route for two actions sharing the same "controller" paramater
    my $books = $r->route('/books/:id')->to(controller => 'book');
    $books->route('/edit')->to(action => 'edit');
    $books->route('/delete')->to(action => 'delete');

    # Bridges can be used to chain multiple routes
    $r->bridge->to(controller => 'foo', action =>'auth')
      ->route('/blog')->to(action => 'list');

    # Waypoints are similar to bridges and nested routes but can also match
    # if they are not the actual endpoint of the whole route
    my $b = $r->waypoint('/books')->to(controller => 'books', action => 'list');
    $b->route('/:id', id => qr/\d+/)->to(action => 'view');

DESCRIPTION

pattern

    my $pattern = $r->pattern;
    $r          = $r->pattern(MojoX::Routes::Pattern->new);
