Turns a string of the form /path/user?a=1&b=2 to an object

var object = m.parsePathname("/path/user?a=1&b=2")
// {path: "/path/user", params: {a: "1", b: "2"}}


object = m.parsePathname(string)

Argument Type Required Description
url String Yes A URL
returns Object A {path, params} pair where path is the normalized path and params is the parsed parameters.

How to read signatures

How it works

The m.parsePathname method creates an object from a path with a possible query string. It is useful for parsing a local path name into its parts, and it's what m.route uses internally to normalize paths to later match them. It uses m.parseQueryString to parse the query parameters into an object.

var data = m.parsePathname("/path/user?a=hello&b=world")

// data.path is "/path/user"
// data.params is {a: "hello", b: "world"}

General-purpose URL parsing

The method is called parsePathname because it applies to pathnames. If you want a general-purpose URL parser, you should use the global URL class instead.
