I blogged about a new feature that I developed for Plug that was merged in and released in the brand-new version 1.3.0.
If you’re familiar with Phoenix, you might know that its Router macros all take a plug module as an argument (a Controller is just a Plug). In Phoenix that looks like:
get "/hello", HelloPlug, options
Now you can do a similar thing in Plug Router:
get "/hello", to: HelloPlug, init_opts: options
In previous versions, if you wanted to route (not forward) to another plug, you’d have to do it manually:
get "/hello" do HelloPlug.call(conn, HelloPlug.init(options)) end
This new feature opens up possibilities for dispatching requests to Controller-like resource modules, rather than filling up the router with function bodies.
In addition, any values for dynamic routes like
get "/hello/:name" will be saved in
Looking forward to you using this!
