Pedestal

Map Tree Router

Motivation

Many Pedestal-based services do not leverage every routing feature. The Map Tree router is optimized for the static routes use case.

Why use it?

Routes requests in constant time (path matching is done by map lookup).

How to use it?

No need to do anything. This is Pedestal’s default router implementation.

Caveats

While this is Pedestal’s default router, it falls back to the Prefix Tree router when path parameters or wildcards are used in routes.

Additional Notes

Like the Prefix Tree Router, query and path contraints are not used in routing decisions. They are only used to invalidate a route match.
