Rack::URLMap

Rack::URLMap takes a hash mapping urls or paths to apps, and dispatches accordingly. Support for HTTP/1.1 host names exists if the URLs start with http:// or https://.

Rack::URLMap modifies the SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO such that the part relevant for dispatch is in the SCRIPT_NAME, and the rest in the PATH_INFO. This should be taken care of when you need to reconstruct the URL in order to create links.

Rack::URLMap dispatches in such a way that the longest paths are tried first, since they are most specific.

app3 = lambda { |e| [200, {}, ["one + two = three\n"]]}

app = Rack::URLMap.new "/one" => app1, "/two" => app2, "/one/two" => app3
