Usage Notes

Routing Rules

Routing rules are configured just before the library is loaded in the script section indicated with // Routing rules ( see quick start ).

  • You may have multiple rule configurations in this section, though this is mostly a future design facilitation. Most likely, the first rule matched will be applied.

Route by Country

Specify the rule type as geo-country.

Supply your routes, from country code to path, exactly as in the structure below. You may have as few or as many routes as you like.

If the visitor's country is not in the list, they will not be routed. They will simply match the default page.

We're working on a design for grouped countries as a regional definition.

// Routing rules
window['sa5_route'] = [{
    type: 'geo-country',
    path: '/',
    route: [
        ["NZ", "/nz"],
        ["AU", "/au"],
        ["US", "/us"],
        ["GB", "/gb"],
