Readme

Waypoint
A CoffeeScript URI router for use anywhere.

In the browser

First you'll want to clone the git repository like so:
git clone git://github.com/DrPheltRight/waypoint.git
cd waypoint
You'll find the latest development version of Waypoint for the browser in the dist directory. You can either use this or build your own like so:
cake build
If you wanted to build the master version you can simply checkout that branch.
Now you can use the browser edition as shown in example/browser.html. It is AMD, CommonJS and global compatible so include it how you wish.

On the server

You can use NPM to install waypoint like so:
npm install waypoint
This will install it into node_modules within your current directory. You probably wouldn't want to use waypoint globally.
Once you have waypoint installed you can require it like normal:
var waypoint = require('waypoint'),
	router = new waypoint.Router;

router.routeMap({
	'/' : function () {
		console.log('Index');
	},
	'/:name': function (name) {
		console.log('Hello', name);
	}
})

router.dispatch('/');
router.dispatch('/Bob');

Contributing

If you wish to hack on waypoint clone the development branch and use npm link to ensure your working directory is symlinked into node's include path.
