slicer

A library to parse URI style strings into named segments.

node-slicer - Slice your URIs

npm install slicer 

It allows you to slice up URIs into named segments. This can be useful for routing requests etc.

// Create a new slicer (you can have multiple slicer instances that are independant of one another)
var s = require("slicer").create();

// Add a segment identifier for the first URI segment with a default value of 'index'.
s.addSegmentIdentifier('controller','index');

// Add a segment identifier for the second URI segment with a default value of 'index'.
s.addSegmentIdentifier('action','index');

// Slice a URI
var uri = s.slice('/foo');

// Outputs: 
// { 
//     controller: 'foo',
//     action: 'index',
//     uri: [] 
// }

// Note that the action segment is given the default value.

// Slice another URI
var uri = s.slice('/foo/bar/a/b/c');

// Outputs: 
// {   
//     controller: 'foo',
//     action: 'bar',
//     uri: [ 'a', 'b', 'c' ] 
// }

// Note that the uri element contains any non labeled segments.
