Urc

Uniform Resource Creator. An Android (working for Java-generic) library that helps user to create URLs for RESTful apis.

The path syntax is taken from Slim framework, so it is in the form of /static/:argument.

Example

Urc myApi = Urc.with("https://my-api.com/v1");
myApi.fromEndpoint("/:firstArgument/try/:second")
     .addParameter("firstArgument", "first")
     .addParameter("second", 2)
     .addParameter("noListed", "hello")
     .build();

The resulting url will be: https://my-api.com/v1/first/try/2?noListed=hello

Note: The query parameter generation is enabled by default. It can be disabled by the .setQueryParametersEnabled(boolean) method in the UrcGenerator class.

FAQ

#### Why this library uses two classes (Urc and UrcGenerator) to build the Url/Uri? Because the method Uri.with returns the "service" builder. The system allows to build several uris from a single service.

Example:

// This is our main service/api url.
Urc ourService = Urc.with("https://ourservice.com");

String listUrl = ourService.fromEndpoint("/list/:id")
    ...
    .build();
String createUrl = ourService.fromEndpoint("/create/:name")
    ...
    .build();
