Fast and flexible PHP5.3+ router with RESTfull support and reverse routing.

0.2.0 2013-07-14 18:22 UTC

README

KoolRouter is a fast, easy to integrate Router. It's inspired by by klein.php and AltoRouter.

It should me used in conjunction with a dispatcher and HTTP interface, as it does (by purpose) not provides these features.

Key features

  • Routing URL's to callback functions
  • Reverse routing a route and parameters to the corresponding path
  • Simple routing syntax

Starting with KoolRouter

  1. Make sure PHP 5.3.* is installed
  2. Install KoolRouter using Composer or manually
  3. Make KoolRouter handle your requests (for example trough URL Rewriting)

Supported Routes

You can use the following syntax within your routes.

    *                    // Match all request URIs
    [i]                  // Match an integer
    [i:id]               // Match an integer as 'id'
    [a:action]           // Match alphanumeric characters as 'action'
    [h:key]              // Match hexadecimal characters as 'key'
    [:action]            // Match anything up to the next / or end of the URI as 'action'
    [create|edit:action] // Match either 'create' or 'edit' as 'action'
    [*]                  // Catch all (lazy, stops at the next trailing slash)
    [*:trailing]         // Catch all as 'trailing' (lazy)
    [**:trailing]        // Catch all (possessive - will match the rest of the URI)
    .[:format]?          // Match an optional parameter 'format' - a / or . before the block is also optional

Some examples

    /pages[/index]?            // Matches "/pages" and "/pages/index"
    /posts/[*:title][i:id]     // Matches "/posts/this-is-a-title-123"
    /output.[xml|json:format]? // Matches "/output", "output.xml", "output.json"
    /[:controller]?/[:action]? // Matches the typical /controller/action format

Example

use ElzeKool\KoolRouter\Router;

$router = new Router();

// Setup route
$router->map(
    'GET /pages/[i:id]', 
    function($method, $path, $parameters, $extra) { 
        echo 'Hello i\'m page ' . $parameters['id'];
    },
    'page_view'
);

// Start routing
$router->run();


// Reverse routing
// (returns: /pages/10)
$route = $router->reverse('page_view', array(
    'id' => 10
));
