Expand description

Welcome to the trillium router crate!

This router is built on top of routefinder, and the details of route resolution and definition are documented on that repository.

use trillium::{conn_unwrap, Conn};
use trillium_router::{Router, RouterConnExt};

let router = Router::new()
    .get("/", |conn: Conn| async move { conn.ok("you have reached the index") })
    .get("/pages/:page_name", |conn: Conn| async move {
        let page_name = conn_unwrap!(conn.param("page_name"), conn);
        let content = format!("you have reached the page named {}", page_name);

use trillium_testing::prelude::*;
assert_ok!(get("/").on(&router), "you have reached the index");
assert_ok!(get("/pages/trillium").on(&router), "you have reached the page named trillium");

Although this is currently the only trillium router, it is an important aspect of trillium’s architecture that the router uses only public apis and is interoperable with other router implementations. If you have different ideas of how a router might work, please publish a crate! It should be possible to nest different types of routers (and different versions of router crates) within each other as long as they all depend on the same version of the trillium crate.

Options handling

By default, the trillium router will reply to an OPTIONS request with the list of supported http methods at the given route. If the OPTIONS request is sent for *, it responds with the full set of http methods supported by this router.

Note: This behavior is superceded by an explicit OPTIONS handler or an any handler.

To disable the default OPTIONS behavior, use Router::without_options_handling or RouterRef::set_options_handling


  • The routes macro represents an experimental macro for defining routers.



  • Extends trillium::Conn with accessors for router params.
