routes / CHANGELOG

Routes Changelog

-- 1.9 (June 12, 2008)
* Fix undefined arg bug in url_for.
* Fixed bug with url_for not working properly outside of a request when
  sub-domains are active. Thanks Pavel Skvazh.
* Add non-minimization option to Routes and the Mapper for generation and
* Add Routes 2.0 style syntax for making routes and regexp. For example, this
  route will now work: '{controller}/{action}/{id}'.
* Fixed Routes to not use quote_plus when making URL's.
* WARNING: Mapper now comes with hardcode_names set to True by default. This
  means routes generated by name must work for the URL.
* Actually respect having urlcache disabled.
* WARNING: Calling url_for with a set of args that returns None now throws an
  exception. Code that previously checked to see if a url could be made must
  be updated accordingly.
* Updated url_for to return url in a literal for use in templating that may
  try to escape it again.
* Added option to use X_FORWARDED_PROTO for proxying behind https to work
* Fixed map.resource to be less restrictive on id than just spaces.
* Fixed Mapper.create_regs not being thread safe, particularly when

-- 1.8 (March 28, 2008)
* Fixed bug of map.resource not allowing spaces in id.
* Fixed url generation to properly handle unicode defaults in addition to
  unicode arguments.
* Fixed url_for to handle lists as keyword args when generating query
* WARNING: Changed map.resource to not use ';', for actions, but the
  normal '/'. This means that formatted URL's will also now have the format
  come AFTER the action. Ie: /messsages/4.xml;rss -> /messages/4/rss.xml

-- 1.7.3 (May 28th, 2008)
* Fixed triple escaping bug, since WSGI servers are responsible for basic

-- 1.7.2 (Feb. 27th, 2008)
* Fixed bug with keyword args not being coerced to raw string properly.

-- 1.7.1 (Nov. 16th, 2007)
* Fixed bug with sub-domains from route defaults getting encoded to unicode
  resulting in a unicode route which then caused url_for to throw an
* Removed duplicate assignment in map.resource. Patch by Mike Naberezny.
* Applied test patch fix for path checking. Thanks Mike Naberezny.
* Added additional checking of remaining URL, to properly swallow periods in
  the appropriate context. Fixes #57.
* Added mapper.hardcode_names option which restricts url generation to the 
  named route during generation rather than using the routes default options
  during generation.
* Fixed the special '_method' attribute not being recognized during POST
  requests of Content-Type 'multipart/form-data'.

-- 1.7 (June 8th, 2007)
* Fixed url_unquoting to only apply for strings.
* Added _encoding option to individual routes to toggle decoding/encoding on a
  per route basis.
* Fixed route matching so that '.' and other special chars are only part of the
  match should they not be followed by that character. Fixed regexp creation so
  that route parts with '.' in them aren't matched properly. Fixes #48.
* Fixed Unicode decoding/encoding so that the URL decoding and encoding can be
  set on the mapper with mapper.encoding. Fixes #40.
* Don't assume environ['CONTENT_TYPE'] always exists: it may be omitted
  according to the WSGI PEP.
* Fixed Unicode decode/encoding of path_info dynamic/wildcard parts so that
  PATH_INFO will stay a raw string as it should. Fixes #51.
* Fixed url_for (thus redirect_to) to throw an exception if a Unicode
  string is returned as that's an invalid URL. Fixes #46.
* Fixed Routes middleware to only parse POST's if the content type is
  application/x-www-form-urlencoded for a HTML form. This properly avoids
  parsing wsgi.input when it doesn't need to be.

-- 1.6.3 (April 10th, 2007)
* Fixed matching so that an attempt to match an empty path raises a
  RouteException. Fixes #44.
* Added ability to use characters in URL's such as '-' and '_' in 
  map.resource. Patch by Wyatt Baldwin. Fixes #45.
* Updated Mapper.resource handling with name_prefix and path_prefix checking
  to specify defaults. Also ensures that should either of them be set, they
  override the prefixes should parent_resource be specified. Patch by Wyatt
  Baldwin. Fixes #42.
* Added utf-8 decoding of incoming path arguments, with fallback to ignoring
  them in the very rare cases a malformed request URL is sent. Patch from
  David Smith.
* Fixed treatment of '#' character as something that can be left off and
  used in route paths. Found by Mike Orr.
* Added ability to specify parent resource to map.resource command. Patch from
  Wyatt Baldwin.
* Fixed formatted route issue with map.resource when additional collection 
  methods are specified. Added unit tests to verify the collection methods
  work properly.
* Updated URL parsing to properly use HTTP_HOST for hostname + port info before
  falling back to SERVER_PORT and SERVER_NAME. Fixes #43.
* Added member_name and collection_name setting to Route object when made with
* Updated routes.middleware to make the Routes matched accessible as
* Updating mapper object to use thread local for request data (such as 
  environ) and middleware now deletes environ references at the end of the
* Added explicit option to Routes and Mapper. Routes _explicit setting will
  prevent the Route defaults from being implicitly set, while setting Mapper
  to explicit will prevent Route implicit defaults and stop url_for from using
  Route memory. Fixes #38.
* Updated config object so that the route is attached if possible.
* Adding standard logging usage with debug messages.
* Added additional test for normal '.' match and fixed new special matching to
  match it properly. Thanks David Smith.
* Fixed hanging special char issue with 'special' URL chars at the end of a URL
  that are missing the variable afterwards.
* Changed Routes generation and recognition to handle other 'special' URL chars
  , . and ; as if they were /. This lets them be optionally left out of the
  resulting generated URL. Feature requested by David Smith.
* Fixed lookahead assertion in regexp builder to properly handle two grouped
  patterns in a row.
* Applied patch to generation and matching to handle Unicode characters
  properly. Reported with patch by David Smith.

-- 1.6.2 (Jan. 5, 2007)
* Fixed issue with method checking not properly handling different letter
  cases in REQUEST_METHOD. Reported by Sean Davis.
* redirect_to now supports config.redirect returning a redirect, not just
  raising one.

-- 1.6.1 (Dec. 29, 2006)
* Fixed zipsafe flag to be False.

-- 1.6 (Dec. 14th, 2006)
* Fixed append_slash to take effect in the route generation itself instead of
  relying on url_for function. Reported by ToddG.
* Added additional url_for tests to ensure map.resource generates proper named
* WARNING: Changed map.resource initialization to accept individual member and
  collection names to generate proper singular and plural route names. Those
  using map.resource will need to update their routes and url_for statements
* Added additional map.resource recognition tests.
* Added WSGI middleware that does route resolving using new ` Routing
  Vars Spec <>`_.
* Added _absolute keyword option route connect to ignore SCRIPT_NAME settings.
  Suggested by Ian Bicking.

-- 1.5.2 (Oct. 16th, 2006)
* Fixed qualified keyword to keep host port names when used, unless a host
  is specifically passed in. Reported by Jon Rosebaugh.
* Added qualified keyword option to url_for to have it generate a full
  URL. Resolves #29.
* Fixed examples in url_for doc strings so they'll be accurate.

-- 1.5.1 (Oct. 4th, 2006)
* Fixed bug with escaping part names in the regular expression, reported by
  James Taylor.

-- 1.5 (Sept. 19th, 2006)
* Significant updates to map.resource and unit tests that comb it thoroughly
  to ensure its creating all the proper routes (it now is). Increased unit
  testing coverage to 95%.
* Added unit tests to ensure controller_scan works properly with nested
  controller files and appropriately scans the directory structure. This
  brings the Routes util module up to full code coverage.
* Fixed url_for so that when the protocol is changed, port information is
  removed from the host.
* Added more thorough testing to _RequestConfig object and the ability to
  set your own object. This increases testing coverage of the __init__ module
  to 100%.
* Fixed bug with sub_domain not maintaining port information in url_for and
  added unit tests. Reported by Jonathan Rosebaugh.
* Added unit tests to ensure sub_domain option works with named routes, cleaned
  up url_for memory argument filtering. Fixed bug with named routes and sub_domain
  option not working together, reported by Jonathan Rosebaugh.
* Changed order in which sub-domain is added to match-dict so it can be used
  in a conditions function.

-- 1.4.1 (Sept. 6th, 2006)
* Added sub_domains option to mapper, along with sub_domains_ignore list for 
  subdomains that are considered equivilant to the main domain. When sub_domains
  is active, url_for will now take a sub_domain option that can alter the host
  the route will go to.
* Added ability for filter functions to provide a _host, _protocol, _anchor arg
  which is then used to create the URL with the appropriate host/protocol/anchor
* Patch applied from Ticket #28. Resolves issue with Mapper's controller_scan
  function requiring a valid directory argument. Submitted by Zoran Isailovski.

-- 1.4 (July 21, 2006)
* Fixed bug with map.resource related to member methods, found in Rails version.
* Fixed bug with map.resource member methods not requiring a member id.
* Fixed bug related to handling keyword argument controller.
* Added map.resource command which can automatically generate a batch of routes intended
  to be used in a REST-ful manner by a web framework.
* Added URL generation handling for a 'method' argument. If 'method' is specified, it
  is not dropped and will be changed to '_method' for use by the framework.
* Added conditions option to map.connect. Accepts a dict with optional keyword args
  'method' or 'function'. Method is a list of HTTP methods that are valid for the route.
  Function is a function that will be called with environ, matchdict where matchdict is
  the dict created by the URL match.
* Fixed redirect_to function for using absolute URL's. redirect_to now passes all args to
  url_for, then passes the resulting URL to the redirect function. Reported by climbus.

-- 1.3.2 (April 30th, 2006)
* Fixed _filter bug with inclusion in match dict during matching, reported by David Creemer.
* Fixed improper url quoting by using urllib.encode, patch by Jason Culverhouse.

-- 1.3.1 (April 4th, 2006)
* Mapper has an optional attribute ``append_slash``. When set to ``True``, any URL's
  generated will have a slash appended to the end. 
* Fixed prefix option so that if the PATH_INFO is empty after prefix regexp, its set to
  '/' so the match proceeds ok.
* Fixed prefix bug that caused routes after the initial one to not see the proper url
  for matching. Caught by Jochen Kupperschmidt.

-- 1.3 (Feb. 25th, 2006)
* url_for keyword filters:
  - Named routes can now have a _filter argument that should specify a function that takes
    a dict as its sole argument. The dict will contain the full set of keywords passed to
    url_for, which the function can then modify as it pleases. The new dict will then be
    used as if it was the original set of keyword args given to url_for.
* Fixed Python 2.3 incompatibility due to using keyword arg for a sort statement
  when using the built-in controller scanner.

-- 1.2 (Feb. 17th, 2006)
* If a named route doesn't exist, and a url_for call is used, instead of using the
  keyword arguments to generate a URL, they will be used as query args for the raw
  URL supplied. (Backwards Incompatible)
* If Mapper has debug=True, using match will return two additional values, the route
  that matched, if one did match. And a list of routes that were tried, and information
  about why they didn't pass.
* url_for enhancements:
  - Can now be used with 'raw' URL's to generate proper url's for static content that
    will then automatically include SCRIPT_NAME if necessary
  - Static named routes can now be used to shortcut common path information as desired.
* Controller Scanner will now sort controller names so that the longest one is first. This
  ensures that the deepest nested controller is executed first before more shallow ones to
  increase predictability.
* Controller Scanner now scans directories properly, the version in 1.1 left off the
  directory prefix when created the list of controllers.
    (Thanks to Justin for drawing my attention to it)

-- 1.1 (Jan. 13th, 2006)
* Routes Mapper additions:
  - Now takes several optional arguments that determine how it will 
    generate the regexp's.
  - Can now hold a function for use when determining what the available
    controllers are. Comes with a default directory scanner
  - Given a directory for the default scanner or a function, the Mapper
    will now automatically run it to get the controller list when needed
* Syntax available for splitting routes to allow more complex route paths, such
  as ':controller/:(action)-:(id).html'
* Easier setup/integration with Routes per request. Setting the environ in a
  WSGI environ will run match, and setup everything needed for url_for/etc.

-- 1.0.2 (Dec. 30th, 2005)
* Routes where a default was present but None were filling in improper values.
* Passing a 0 would evaluate to None during generation, resulting in missing
  URL parts

-- 1.0.1 (Dec. 18th, 2005)
* Request Local Callable - You can now designate your own callable function that
  should then be used to store the request_config data. This is most useful for
  environments where its possible multiple requests might be running in a single
  thread. The callable should return a request specific object for attributes to
  be attached. See for more information.

-- 1.0 (Nov. 21st, 2005)
* routes.__init__ will now load the common symbols most people will
  want to actually use.
  Thus, you can either:
       from routes import *
       from routes import request_confg, Mapper
  The following names are available for importing from routes:
      request_config, Mapper, url_for, redirect_to
* Route Names - You can now name a route, which will save a copy of the defaults
  defined for later use by url_for or redirect_to. 
  Thus, a route and url_for looking like this:
       m.connect('home', controller='blog', action='splash')
       url_for(controller='blog', action='splash')   # => /home
  Can now be used with a name:
       m.connect('home_url','home', controller='blog', action='splash')
       url_for('home_url')  # => /home
  Additional keywords can still be added to url_for and will override defaults in
  the named route.
* Trailing / - Route recognition earlier failed on trailing slashes, not really a bug,
  not really a feature I guess. Anyways, trailing slashes are o.k. now as in the Rails
* redirect_to now has two sets of tests to ensure it works properly
