Configuring routes

Configuring routes in Kore happens in the Kore configuration inside of the domain configuration block.

There are 2 type routes:

  • static routes
  • dynamic routes

Routes are evaluated from top to bottom.

A static route is a path that is simply matched to the incoming path for the request with a straight forward string comparison.

A dynamic route is a regular expression that is matched against the incoming path. This allows you to capture multiple routes towards the same callback.

domain * {
    static / root_page
    static /about/ about_page

    dynamic ^.*$ redirect

In the example above the configuration specifies 2 static routes and one dynamic route that captures all the other paths and sends them to some redirection function.

Parameter configuration

If you wish to receive parameters via a route you must define them in the configuration and specify how they should be validated.

Validation is not optional.

After having defined the route you would continue with a param block:

# First we must define a validator (in the global config)
validator v_number regex ^[0-9]$

# Then inside the domain {} configuration we can add the parameter block
# on an existing route:
params qs:get / {
    validate id v_number

The params block syntax is as follows:

params method route {
    validate parameter validator

Where method is the lowercase method (eg: post, get) and optionally prefixed with qs: indicating the query string should be validated with this parameters.

If validation for a parameter fails it is filtered out.
