Thats a neat implementation.

I once meddled with the same idea and built a small. Router called RouteNow.

It started with a simple hashbang routing as you did here, and then shifted default routing method to history.pushState and popState. As that forms better readable urls.

Installation

Installating RouteNow.js is as easy as it gets.

Add the script to the end of your body

<script src="../pathto/route-now.js"></script>

Or use the CDN link


<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/akhilarjun/RouteNow@latest/js/route-now.js"></script>
<!-- For specific version use the version tag -->
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/akhilarjun/RouteNow@v2.0.1/js/route-now.js"></script>
<!-- For Minified -->
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/akhilarjun/RouteNow@v2.0.1/js/route-now.min.js"></script>

Use anchor tags with r-href property to point to your paths

<a r-href="home">Home</a>

Now add the Router outlet where the views should…

Thank you for the information. Seems you haven't published this as an NPM package. That's a must nowadays, should we want to include your work in a Webpack managed project.
