NOTE: unless you are building new framework bits, you probably want to use OX::Application::Role::RouterConfig instead, which provides some nicer syntax for some common route builders.

This role provides a RouterConfig service for your application container, which should contain a description of all of the routes your application will be handling. This description must be a hashref, where the keys are paths and the values are hashrefs with class, route_spec, and params keys. class determines which OX::RouteBuilder class to use to parse this route, route_spec is a description of the route itself, and params provides a hashref of extra data (for instance, with OX::Application::Role::Router::Path::Router, params holds the Path::Router defaults and validations).


parse_route($path, $route)

This method takes a path and a route description as described above and returns a new OX::RouteBuilder instance which will handle creating the routes. By default it creates an instance of $route->{class}, passing in the $path, $route->{route_spec}, and $route->{params} as arguments, but you can override this in your app to provide more features.
