#2826 Is there a router library not tied to wisp?

j.longanecker Mon 26 Apr

Hello all, new Fantom developer, I am using it for work with the Fin5 framework, as I am assuming lots of you are.

I am working on a rest API, and am using the Weblet class and overriding onGet. That's not a big deal. I get a request and response object, and that's perfect. However, I am used to working with things like express for JS, which has libraries and tools for routing. If there is a tool that will let me map routes to functions already, that would be amazing.

Otherwise, that's going to be one of my first projects.

Thanks.

Probably more than you need — but take a look at Draft.

Or can just cherry pick this code if its close to what you need:

Steve might have something too over on EggBox.

Steve might have something too over on EggBox.

It still technically uses Wisp I believe, but what you're possibly looking for is something like Bedsheet

Steve has also written a couple of guides on bedsheet which can be found here

@Andy, thank you. Router.fan looks like exactly what I need. Thank you!

Why we need URL to method mapping? It just call by reflection in slan:

using slanWeb
class Temp : SlanWeblet {
  Void hi() {
    stash("name", "Abc")
    render(`temp.html`)
  }
}

The http://localhost:8080/Temp/hi will route to Temp.hi method.
