Ember Redirect
EmberJS Redirect addon for Ember-CLI. This addon aims to be a simple and easy way to preform route based redirects with minimal effort. The goal is to support legacy links and link-tos which can "redirect" to a new route. You will be still be able to extend off of these "old" routes which should allow building new features much easier then having to start from scratch in a large project. Also looking at your router.js file should easily show you where certain routes will redirect to instead of hiding that inside of mixins as an example.

Installation ##

ember install ember-redirect

Usage ##

const Router = Ember.Router.extend({
  location: config.locationType,
  rootURL: config.rootURL,

  redirects: {
    'sample'        : 'something',
    'testing.index' : 'something',
    'testing.foo'   : 'bar',
    'bar.cat'       : 'testing.foo',
    'account'       : 'user',
    'profile'       : 'user'

Router.map(function() {
  this.route('sample'); // will redirect to something

  this.route('testing', function() { // will redirect to something
    this.route('foo'); // will redirect to bar

    this.route('bar', function() {
      this.route('cat'); // will redirect to testing.foo

  this.route('user', { path: 'user/:user_id/something/:something' });
  this.route('profile', { path: 'profile/:profile_id/user/:user_id' }); // will redirect to user
  this.route('account', { path: 'account/:account_id/other/:other_id' }); // will redirect to user

Dynamic Routes ##

Dynamic routes are supported and follow two rules:
The first is that if you are redirecting from one route to another and they share a common dynamic segment then those are preserved. As an example we have the following routes:
redirects: {
  'profile' : 'user'


this.route('user', { path: 'user/:user_id/something/:something' });
this.route('profile', { path: 'profile/:profile_id/user/:user_id' });

Our profile url would be something like this: /profile/1/user/13 and would redirect to the user route of: /user/13/something/1. You can see in this example that both routes share the same :user_id segment and those are mapped together.
The next rule is that once all shared dynamic segments are matched (or there are none) then we simple fall back to doing a 1:1 match. As an example:
redirects: {
  'account' : 'user'


this.route('user', { path: 'user/:user_id/something/:something' });
this.route('account', { path: 'account/:account_id/other/:other_id' });

Our account url would be something of this form: /account/34/other/17 and would redirect to the user route of: /user/34/something/17. As you can see there are no shared dynamic segments so we just perform a 1:1 mapping where the first segment in account maps to the first segment in user.

External Routes ##

External routes are supported in the redirects hash. You simply pass the url you want to redirect to as a string. The redirect string must resemble a url.
An external redirect should look like:
redirects: {
  'external' : 'https://github.com/thoov/ember-redirect'
