New Features

  • A params_capturing plugin has been added, which makes string and symbol matchers update the request params with the value of the captured segments, using the matcher as the key:

    plugin :params_capturing
    route do |r|
      # GET /foo/123/abc/67
      r.on("foo/:bar/:baz", :quux) do
        r[:bar] #=> '123'
        r[:baz] #=> 'abc'
        r[:quux] #=> '67'

    Note that this updating of the request params using the matcher as the key is only done if all arguments to the matcher are symbols or strings.

    All matchers will update the request params by adding all captured segments to the captures key, including symbol and string matchers:

    r.on(:x, /(\d+)\/(\w+)/, ':y') do
      r[:x] #=> nil
      r[:y] #=> nil
      r[:captures] #=> ["foo", "123", "abc", "67"]

    Note that the request params captures entry will be appended to with each nested match:

    r.on(:w) do
      r.on(:x) do
        r.on(:y) do
          r.on(:z) do
            r[:captures] # => ["foo", "123", "abc", "67"]

    Note that any existing params captures entry will be overwritten by this plugin. You can use r.GET or r.POST to get the underlying entry, depending on how it was submitted.

    Also note that the param keys are actually stored in r.params as strings and not symbols (r[] converts the argument to a string before looking it up in r.params).

    Also note that this plugin will not work correctly if you are using the symbol_matchers plugin with custom symbol matching and are using symbols that capture multiple values or no values.

  • A :scope option is now supported by render/view in the render plugin, which allows you to specify the object in which context to evaluate the template.

Other Improvements

  • The assets plugin’s support for the Minjs javascript minifier now supports the latest version (0.4.1).

Backwards Compatibility

  • Support for Minjs <0.4.0 has been dropped from the assets plugin. Please upgrade Minjs at the same time you upgrade Roda if you are using both of them.
