Redirect and Alias

Redirect

Redirecting is also done in the routes configuration. To redirect from /a to /b:

const router = new VueRouter({
  routes: [
    { path: '/a', redirect: '/b' }
  ]
})

The redirect can also be targeting a named route:

const router = new VueRouter({
  routes: [
    { path: '/a', redirect: { name: 'foo' }}
  ]
})

Or even use a function for dynamic redirecting:

const router = new VueRouter({
  routes: [
    { path: '/a', redirect: to => {
      // the function receives the target route as the argument
      // return redirect path/location here.
    }}
  ]
})

Alias

A redirect means when the user visits /a, and URL will be replaced by /b, and then matched as /b. But what is an alias?

An alias of /a as /b means when the user visits /b, the URL remains /b, but it will be matched as if the user is visiting /a.

The above can be expressed in the route configuration as:

const router = new VueRouter({
  routes: [
    { path: '/a', component: A, alias: '/b' }
  ]
})

An alias gives you the freedom to map a UI structure to an arbitrary URL, instead of being constrained by the configuration's nesting structure.
