//=> ]
 
const routes = ['/', '/foo', 'bar', '/baz', '/baz/:title','/bat/*'].map(parse);
 
match('/', routes);
//=> [{ old:'/', type:0, val:'/' }]
 
match('/foo', routes);
//=> [{ old:'/foo', type:0, val:'foo' }]
 
match('/bar', routes);

API

matchit.parse(route)

Returns: Array

The route is split and parsed into a "definition" array of objects. Each object ("segment") contains a val, type, and old key:

  • old — The route's original value
  • type — An numerical representation of the segment type.
    • 0 - static
    • 1 - parameter
    • 2 - any/wildcard
    • 3 - optional param
  • val — The current segment's value. This is either a static value of the name of a parameter

route

Type: String

A single URL pattern.

Note: Input will be stripped of all leading & trailing / characters, so there's no need to normalize your own URLs before passing it to parse!

matchit.match(url, routes)

Returns: Array

Returns the route's encoded definition. See matchit.parse.

url

Type: String

The true URL you want to be matched.

routes

Type: Array

All "parsed" route definitions, via matchit.parse.

Important: Multiple routes will require an Array of matchit.parse outputs.

matchit.exec(url, match)

Returns: Object

Returns an object an object of key:val pairs, as defined by your route pattern.

url

Type: String

The URL (pathname) to evaluate.

Important: This should be pathnames only as any querystrings will be included the response.

match

Type: Array

The route definition to use, via matchit.match.
