0.8.0 • Public • Published

JavaScript Router

  • Lightweight (1.06 kB).
  • Framework agnostic.

Shipped like an ES module. Load it with <script type=module>.

Demo

Example

import { createRouter } from 'https://unpkg.com/@nicolasparada/router@0.8.0/router.js'
 
const main = document.querySelector('main')
const router = createRouter()
 
router.route('/', homePage)
router.route(/^\/users\/(?<username>[^/]+)$/, userPage)
router.route(/^\//, notFound)
router.subscribe(render)
router.install()
 
function homePage() {
    return 'Home Page'
}
 
function userPage(params) {
    return `${params.username}'s Profile Page`
}
 
function notFoundPage() {
    return '404 Not Found'
}
 
function render(result) {
    main.innerHTML = result
}

Route

router.route('/', params => {
    // ...
})

route takes a pattern and a handler function.

The pattern can be a string for exact match or a regular expression for dynamic URLs. params is actually an array with the captured parts if a regular expression was used. But if you used named capture groups, you can access them through the names you provided.

Be careful with the order in which you add the routes.

Subscribe

router.subscribe(result => {
    // ...
})

The listener you pass is fired initially and for every navigation. result is what the route handler returns.

Install

router.install()

It makes the router start listening for navigation events (popstate and whatsoever). It also hijacks all the anchor links to prevent full page reloads.

Navigate

import { navigate } from 'https://unpkg.com/@nicolasparada/router@0.8.0/router.js'
 
navigate('/')

This function allows you to navigate imperatively. It accepts a second boolean argument to navigate without leaving history behind (history.replaceState).
