question: How do I get path parameters?

See original GitHub issue

I have a route that looks like this:

<Route path="/tests/:testname" component="{ViewTest}" />

I want to access the :testname value inside the ViewTest component but it wasn’t obvious to me the best way to do this. Any help would be appreciated?

I was wondering the same, and found out that if you export let testname in ViewTest, it will set that.

Hi @matryer!

Like @gissleh said you should export the variables from the component of the Route, since the path parameters will be passed to the rendered component.

This is mentioned briefly in the documentation:

Potential route parameters will be passed to the rendered component as properties.
