The Amber router recognizes URLs and dispatches them to a controller's action. It can also generate paths and URLs, avoiding the need to hardcode strings in your views.


A pipeline is a set of of transformations that is performed on an HTTP request. These transformations come in the form of a pipe. A pipe is a _**_class which includes HTTP::Handler and implements the #call method. You can think of a pipe as a form of middleware that intercepts any incoming request and modifies the response. Some example usages for pipes are request throttling, ip-based whitelisting, adding custom headers.


Routing in Amber provides developers a manifest to map application URLs to controller actions. By defining routes, you can separate how your application directs requests and how URLs are structured. Each route creates a real-time web socket handler, and define a series of pipeline transformations for scoping middleware to sets of routes.
