Console for Testing Routes?

Hi,

when the “Agile Web D.” book talks about routes, there are what
looks like console transcripts like the following:

URL> store
@params = {:controller => ‘store’, :action = ‘index’}

Is there something like a console for testing routes (where you could
put in a url and see how rails would route it)??

I’m pretty sure that dave just created that for demonstration purposes
but the latest rails as the app object in the console which you can
use for this:

./script/console

app.url_for :controller => ‘store’, :action => ‘index’
=> “http://www.example.com/store

app.host! ‘www.snowdevil.ca’
=> “www.snowdevil.ca”

app.url_for :controller => ‘store’, :action => ‘index’
=> “http://www.snowdevil.ca/store

Is there any way to do that sort of thing from a controller? Giving
some function a path and then getting the params that path would
produce?

For example, passing this to some function:

“/store/edit/1”

and getting back

[:controller => “store”, :action => “edit”, :id => “1”]

or whatever the appropriate params for the route are.

app.get >> app.get ‘/’

app.controller.params
=> {“action”=>“index”, “controller”=>“shop”}

I’ve seen that, which is good, but I mean from within an action in a
controller or elsewhere, not from the console.

At some point, my application gets lists of URLs, and I want to know
what params their paths produce.

(Plus, oops! Those should have been curly braces.)
