Delimiter Tree

A delimiter tree is a tree that is built from a string based on the delimiter. For example, if you have a string "foo;bar" then you will have a parent node "foo" and a child node "bar". Each node will hold a payload.

The delimiter tree also supports two special characters.

  • : is used for a parameter
    • is used to include a payload for all children nodes

The tree will return an array of payloads for all matching * as well as the specific payload for the final matching string.


Add this to your application's shard.yml:

    github: drujensen/delimiter_tree


The delimiter tree is used to return a payload or an array of payloads for a particular delimited string. This can be used for url paths or any situation where you need to specifically hold data per each segment of a delimited string.

require "delimiter_tree"

tree ="/")
tree.add "/*", :all_children
tree.add "/products", :products
tree.add "/products/:id", :specific_product

result = tree.find "/products/2"

puts result.payload
# [:all_children, :products]

puts result.params
# :id => 2
