It's bit easier to install and import it without @syndicode prefix, so moved


1.1.3 • Public • Published


For named routes, framework agnostic - just works with strings.


npm install @syndicode/route-maker

Defining routes

// routes.js of your project

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

export default {
  root: route('/'),
  items: route('items'),
  item: route('items/:id')

Using routes

Now in router code to get original route string, react for example:

import routes from './routes'

<Route path={routes.item()} />

And for get path with id:

import routes from './routes'

<Link to={routes.item({id: 123})} />

If param was not matched in string, it will become URI parameter:

routes.items({search: 'phrase'}) //= '/items?search=phrase'

Positional parameters

Parameters can be passed as plain arguments

import routes from './routes'

routes.item(123) === '/items/123'
routes.item(123, {param: 'value'}) === '/items/123?param=value'
routes.item(123, {param: 'value'}, {prefix: 'api'}) === '/api/items/123?param=value'

Positional parameters can be used with hash-provided parameters:

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

const url = route('path/:one/:two')
url(1, {two: 2}) === '/path/1/2'

Options with examples

Options can be set when creating and calling route.

Prefix example:

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

let path = route('path', {prefix: 'api'})
path() === '/api/path'
path({prefix: 'api/v2'}) === '/api/v2/path'

Can be changed directly:

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

route.options.prefix = 'api'

const path = route('path')
path() === '/api/path'

Imported constructor can be extended with config method:

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

const apiRoute = route.config({prefix: 'api'})
let path = apiRoute('path')
path() === '/api/path'

let path = route('path')
path() === '/path'

Prefix and defaults example

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

const apiRoute = route.config({prefix: 'api/v:apiVersion', defaults: {apiVersion: 1}})
let path = apiRoute('path')
path === '/api/v1/path'

let path = apiRoute('path')
path({apiVersion: 2}) === '/api/v2/path'

Default values can be dynamically calculated:

import route from '@syndicode/route-maker'

let currentUser = {}
const userRoute = route.config({prefix: ':userType', defaults: {
  userType: () => currentUser.type

let path = userRoute('path')

currentUser.type = 'customer'
path() === '/customer/path'

currentUser.type = 'admin'
path() === '/admin/path'

Options list

url string, full url if needed. Parameters inside are not allowed.

prefix string, adds prefix to resulting strings. Parameters inside are allowed.

prependSlash boolean, default true, adds slash at the begging of path if it is absent

assign object, will call Object.assign on route instances to add them provided properties

defaults object, default parameters. Works with parameters in prefix. If object value is function then it will be called, result will come to url.
