PubServe Rewrites

This library is highly experimental and its purpose is to be used during development.

Feedback and PR's are welcome


To help pub serve to support apps using HTML5 pushState for navigation during development.

Rewrite uses pattern matching to check if a given URL will be ignored or if changed to a new destination URL.


> pub global activate --source git

How to use

Create a rewrites.yaml file in the root of your project (same folder as your pubspec.yaml) and setup your rewrite rules.

In the example bellow all json|html|js|dart|css|png will be ignored and the server proxied decide what will be served.

When the browser makes a request to eg: /admin/dashboard it will receive the content of admin.html.

All others requests that are not ignored or that matches with /admin/(.*) will be proxied to index.html.

# rewrites.yaml
- ^(\S+\.(json|html|js|dart|css|png))$
- rewrite: /admin/(.*)
  to: admin.html
- rewrite: (.*)
  to: index.html

Run the following code in your terminal
