CatalystX::TraitFor::Dispatcher::ExactMatch - handle trailing slashes properly
package MyApp; use Catalyst::Runtime 5.80; use Catalyst qw/ -Debug Static::Simple /; use CatalystX::RoleApplicator; __PACKAGE__->apply_dispatcher_class_roles( qw/CatalystX::TraitFor::Dispatcher::ExactMatch/ );
The Catalyst dispatcher doesn't differentiate between:
Not even with Regex dispatching. Not even by writing a custom dispatch type.
This is apparently a "feature". As far as I'm concerned, it's a bug.
This trait for Catalyst::Dispatcher attempts to perform an exact match, including trailing slashes, ahead of Catalyst's default dispatching. It's not been tested in every possible configuration, but it works for me.
Please report any bugs to http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=CatalystX-TraitFor-Dispatcher-ExactMatch.
Catalyst::Plugin::SanitizeUrl appears to do something similar for pre-Moose versions of Catalyst.
