Padrino

Controllers

Overview

Suppose we wanted to add routes to our Padrino application, and we want to organize a set of related routes within a more structured grouping. Padrino has the notion of a 'controller' block which can group related routes and make URL generation much easier. Simply add a controllers.rb file or app/controllers folder and create a file as such:

# app/controllers/main.rb or controllers.rb

SimpleApp.controller do
  get "/test" do
    "Text to return"
  end

  get "/sample" do
    "Sample Route"
  end
end

In this case, the controller merely acts as a structured grouping mechanism to allow better organization of routes. Controllers actually have other benefits as well when used in conjunction with the enhanced Padrino routing system.
