Expand description

An enum encapsulating any of the possible URI variants.

Usage

In Rocket, this type will rarely be used directly. Instead, you will typically encounter URIs via the Origin type. This is because all incoming requests accepred by Rocket contain URIs in origin-form.

Parsing

The Uri type implements a full, zero-allocation, zero-copy RFC 7230 compliant “request target” parser with limited liberties for real-world deviations. In particular, the parser deviates as follows:

  • It accepts % characters without two trailing hex-digits.

  • It accepts the following additional unencoded characters in query parts, to match real-world browser behavior:

    {, }, [, ], \, ^, `, |

To parse an &str into a Uri, use Uri::parse(). Alternatively, you may also use the TryFrom<&str> and TryFrom<String> trait implementation. To inspect the parsed type, match on the resulting enum and use the methods of the internal structure.

Variants

Asterisk(Asterisk)

An asterisk: exactly *.

Origin(Origin<'a>)

An origin URI.

Authority(Authority<'a>)

An authority URI.

Absolute(Absolute<'a>)

An absolute URI.

Reference(Reference<'a>)

A URI reference.

Implementations

Parses the string string into a Uri of kind T.

This is identical to T::parse(string).map(Uri::from).

T is typically one of Asterisk, Origin, Authority, Absolute, or Reference. Parsing never allocates. Returns an Error if string is not a valid URI of kind T.

To perform an ambgiuous parse into any valid URI type, use Uri::parse_any().

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Origin};

// Parse a valid origin URI (note: in practice, use `Origin::parse()`).
let uri = Uri::parse::<Origin>("/a/b/c?query").expect("valid URI");
let origin = uri.origin().expect("origin URI");
assert_eq!(origin.path(), "/a/b/c");
assert_eq!(origin.query().unwrap(), "query");

// Prefer to use the `uri!()` macro for static inputs. The return value
// is of the specific type, not `Uri`.
let origin = uri!("/a/b/c?query");
assert_eq!(origin.path(), "/a/b/c");
assert_eq!(origin.query().unwrap(), "query");

// Invalid URIs fail to parse.
Uri::parse::<Origin>("foo bar").expect_err("invalid URI");

Parse string into a the “best fit” URI type.

Always prefer to use uri!() for statically known inputs.

Because URI parsing is ambgious (that is, there isn’t a one-to-one mapping between strings and a URI type), the internal type returned by this method may not be the desired type. This method chooses the “best fit” type for a given string by preferring to parse in the following order:

  • Asterisk
  • Origin
  • Authority
  • Absolute
  • Reference

Thus, even though * is a valid Asterisk and Reference URI, it will parse as an Asterisk.

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Origin, Reference};

// An absolute path is an origin _unless_ it contains a fragment.
let uri = Uri::parse_any("/a/b/c?query").expect("valid URI");
let origin = uri.origin().expect("origin URI");
assert_eq!(origin.path(), "/a/b/c");
assert_eq!(origin.query().unwrap(), "query");

let uri = Uri::parse_any("/a/b/c?query#fragment").expect("valid URI");
let reference = uri.reference().expect("reference URI");
assert_eq!(reference.path(), "/a/b/c");
assert_eq!(reference.query().unwrap(), "query");
assert_eq!(reference.fragment().unwrap(), "fragment");

// Prefer to use the `uri!()` macro for static inputs. The return type
// is the internal type, not `Uri`. The explicit type is not required.
let uri: Origin = uri!("/a/b/c?query");
let uri: Reference = uri!("/a/b/c?query#fragment");

Returns the internal instance of Origin if self is a Uri::Origin. Otherwise, returns None.

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Absolute, Origin};

let uri = Uri::parse::<Origin>("/a/b/c?query").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.origin().is_some());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("/a/b/c?query"));
assert!(uri.origin().is_some());

let uri = Uri::parse::<Absolute>("https://rocket.rs").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.origin().is_none());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("https://rocket.rs"));
assert!(uri.origin().is_none());

Returns the internal instance of Authority if self is a Uri::Authority. Otherwise, returns None.

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Absolute, Authority};

let uri = Uri::parse::<Authority>("user:pass@domain.com").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.authority().is_some());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("user:pass@domain.com"));
assert!(uri.authority().is_some());

let uri = Uri::parse::<Absolute>("https://rocket.rs").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.authority().is_none());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("https://rocket.rs"));
assert!(uri.authority().is_none());

Returns the internal instance of Absolute if self is a Uri::Absolute. Otherwise, returns None.

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Absolute, Origin};

let uri = Uri::parse::<Absolute>("http://rocket.rs").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.absolute().is_some());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("http://rocket.rs"));
assert!(uri.absolute().is_some());

let uri = Uri::parse::<Origin>("/path").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.absolute().is_none());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("/path"));
assert!(uri.absolute().is_none());

Returns the internal instance of Reference if self is a Uri::Reference. Otherwise, returns None.

Example
use rocket::http::uri::{Uri, Absolute, Reference};

let uri = Uri::parse::<Reference>("foo/bar").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.reference().is_some());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("foo/bar"));
assert!(uri.reference().is_some());

let uri = Uri::parse::<Absolute>("https://rocket.rs").expect("valid URI");
assert!(uri.reference().is_none());

let uri = Uri::from(uri!("https://rocket.rs"));
assert!(uri.reference().is_none());
