wai-routes: Typesafe URLs for Wai applications.

[ library, mit, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

Provides easy to use typesafe URLs for Wai Applications.

Sample usage follows (See examples/Example.hs in the source bundle for the full code) -

{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings, TypeFamilies #-}

import Network.Wai
import Network.Wai.Middleware.Routes

import Data.IORef

-- The Site Argument
data MyRoute = MyRoute (IORef DB)

-- Generate Routes
mkRoute MyRoute [parseRoutes|
/             UsersR         GET
/user/#Int    UserR:
  /              UserRootR   GET
  /delete        UserDeleteR POST
|]

-- Define Handlers
-- All Users Page
getUsersR :: Handler MyRoute
getUsersR (MyRoute dbref) request = ...
-- Single User Page
getUserRootR :: Int -> Handler MyRoute
getUserRootR userid (MyRoute dbref) request = ...
-- Delete Single User
postUserDeleteR :: Int -> Handler MyRoute
postUserDeleteR userid (MyRoute dbref) request = ...

-- Define Application using RouteM Monad
myApp = do
  db <- liftIO $ newIORef mydb
  route (MyRoute db)
  setDefaultAction $ staticApp $ defaultFileServerSettings "static"

-- Run the application
main :: IO ()
main = toWaiApp myApp >>= run 8080

Readme for wai-routes-0.3.0

[back to package description]
Wai Routes (wai-routes-0.3.0)
==============================

This package provides typesafe URLs for Wai applications.

Features:
  - Automatic generation of Route boilerplate using TH
  - Easy Nested Routes
  - Sitewide Master datatype which is passed to all handlers
    and can be used for persistent data (like DB connections)
  - RouteM monad that makes it easy to compose an application
    with multiple routes and middleware.
  - Handlers can abort processing and pass control to the next
    application in the wai stack

It depends on yesod-routes package for the TH functionality (but not the rest of yesod). The aim is to provide a similar level of typesafe URL functionality to Wai applications as is available to Yesod applications.


Example Usage
=============

The following builds a simple JSON service (using Aeson for JSON conversion)


    {-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings, TypeFamilies #-}

    import Network.Wai
    import Network.Wai.Middleware.Routes

    import Data.IORef

    -- The Site Argument
    data MyRoute = MyRoute (IORef DB)

    -- Generate Routes
    mkRoute MyRoute [parseRoutes|
    /             UsersR         GET
    /user/#Int    UserR:
      /              UserRootR   GET
      /delete        UserDeleteR POST
    |]

    -- Define Handlers
    -- All Users Page
    getUsersR :: Handler MyRoute
    getUsersR (MyRoute dbref) request = ...
    -- Single User Page
    getUserRootR :: Int -> Handler MyRoute
    getUserRootR userid (MyRoute dbref) request = ...
    -- Delete Single User
    postUserDeleteR :: Int -> Handler MyRoute
    postUserDeleteR userid (MyRoute dbref) request = ...

    -- Define Application using RouteM Monad
    myApp = do
      db <- liftIO $ newIORef mydb
      route (MyRoute db)
      setDefaultAction $ staticApp $ defaultFileServerSettings "static"

    -- Run the application
    main :: IO ()
    main = toWaiApp myApp >>= run 8080


Changelog
=========

0.1   : Intial release
0.2   : Updated functionality based on yesod-routes package
0.2.1 : Changed license to MIT
0.2.2 : Fixed license information in hs and cabal files
0.2.3 : Implemented a better showRoute function. Added blaze-builder as a dependency
0.2.4 : Put an upper bound on yesod-routes version as 1.2 breaks API compatibility
0.3.0 : yesod-routes 1.2 compatibility. Abstracted request data. Created `runNext` which skips to the next app in the wai stack
