lua-resty-locations

Lua library implementing nginx style location uri matching.

lua-resty-locations

Lua library implementing nginx style 'location' uri matching.

As nginx's location feature. Supports longest prefix matching, regex matching, case insensitive regex matching and exact matches.

  • Exact matches are checked first, search returns on hit.

  • Prefix matches then checked and the longest match is remembered.

    • If prefix match has ^~ modifier search returns

  • Regexes are checked in order

  • If no regex match longest prefix is returned

            local ok, err = my_locs:set("^/qux", "~* ^/qux", "~*")
    
            -- prefix match, no regex check

Methods

new

syntax: my_locations, err = locations:new(size?)

Creates a new instance of resty-locations with an optional initial size

set

syntax: ok, err = my_locations:set(key, value, modifier?)

Adds a new key with associated value and modifier, default is an empty string for prefix match. Keys must be strings. Returns false and an error message on failure.

Modifiers are as the nginx location feature.

  • (empty string) - Prefix match

  • = - Exact match

  • ~ - Regex match

  • ~* - Case insensitive regex match

  • ^~ - Prefix match, skip regexes

lookup

syntax: val, err = my_locations:lookup(uri)

Retrieves value for provided uri. Returns nil and an error message on failure
