Jexus Series: URL Rewrite

Jexus does not support outbound rules (unlike IIS URL Rewrite module), but it supports simple inbound rules.

For more information on Jexus/IIS comparison you can go to https://github.com/jexuswebserver/jexus-contrib/blob/master/comparison.en.md

To configure IIS URL Rewrite, you might follow this article.

Assume that we have the following rule defined on IIS,

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
<rewrite>
    <rules>
        <rule name="Rewrite to article.aspx">
            <match url="^article/([0–9]+)/([_0–9a-z-]+)" />
            <action type="Rewrite" url="article.aspx?id={R:1}&amp;title={R:2}" />
        </rule>
    </rules>
</rewrite>

The rule can be translated to Jexus style as

1
rewrite=^/article/([0–9]+)/([_0–9a-z-]+) /article.aspx?id=$1&amp;title=$2

Compared to IIS, Jexus inbound rule contains less features right now. Below are the things it does not yet support,

  • Actions such as Redirect or AbortRequest
  • Conditions
  • Ability to break from cascading rules
