Koa tree router

Build Status npm npm downloads

Koa tree router is a high performance router for Koa.

Features

  • Fast. Up to 11 times faster than Koa-router. Benchmark

  • Express-style routing using router.get, router.put, router.post, etc.

  • Support for 405 method not allowed

  • Multiple middleware per route

How does it work?

The router relies on a tree structure which makes heavy use of common prefixes, it is basically a compact prefix tree (or just Radix tree).

This module's tree implementation is based on julienschmidt/httprouter.

Installation

# npm
npm i koa-tree-router
# yarn
yarn add koa-tree-router

Usage

const Koa = require("koa");
const Router = require("koa-tree-router");

const app = new Koa();
const router = new Router();
router.get("/", function(ctx) {
  ctx.body = "hello, world";
});

app.use(router.routes());

app.listen(8080);

API

Router([options])

Instance a new router.

const router = require('koa-tree-router')({
  onMethodNotAllowed(ctx){
    ctx.body = "not allowed"
  },
  ignoreTrailingSlash: true
})

on(method, path, middleware)

Register a new route.

router.on('GET', '/example', (ctx) => {
  // your code
})

Shorthand methods

If you want to get expressive, here is what you can do:

router.get(path, middleware)
router.delete(path, middleware)
router.head(path, middleware)
router.patch(path, middleware)
router.post(path, middleware)
router.put(path, middleware)
router.options(path, middleware)
router.trace(path, middleware)
router.connect(path, middleware)

If you need a route that supports all methods you can use the all api.

router.all(path, middleware)

use(middleware)

You can add middleware that is added to all future routes:

router.use(authMiddleware);
router.get("/foo", (ctx) => { /* your code */ });
router.get("/bar", (ctx) => { /* your code */ });
router.get("/baz", (ctx) => { /* your code */ });

This is equivalent to:

router.get("/foo", authMiddleware, (ctx) => { /* your code */ });
router.get("/bar", authMiddleware, (ctx) => { /* your code */ });
router.get("/baz", authMiddleware, (ctx) => { /* your code */ });

Caveat: use must be called before register a new handler. It does not append handlers to registered routes.

routes

Returns router middleware.

app.use(router.routes());

nested routes

A way to create groups of routes without incuring any per-request overhead.

const Koa = require("koa");
const Router = require("koa-tree-router");

const app = new Koa();
const router = new Router();
const group = router.newGroup("/foo");
// add a handler for /foo/bar
group.get("/bar", function(ctx) {
  ctx.body = "hello, world";
});

app.use(router.routes());

app.listen(8080);

Middleware added with use() are also added to the nested routes.

ctx.params

This object contains key-value pairs of named route parameters.

router.get("/user/:name", function() {
  // your code
});
// GET /user/1
ctx.params.name
// => "1"

How to write routes

There are 3 types of routes:

1.Static

Pattern: /static

 /static                   match
 /anything-else            no match

2.Named

Named parameters have the form :name and only match a single path segment:

Pattern: /user/:user

 /user/gordon              match
 /user/you                 match
 /user/gordon/profile      no match
 /user/                    no match

3.Catch-all

Catch-all parameters have the form *name and match everything. They must always be at the end of the pattern:

Pattern: /src/*filepath

 /src/                     match
 /src/somefile.go          match
 /src/subdir/somefile.go   match
