Can I have a GET request with variable number of parameters in the url?

Can I do something like this?
Slim Version: 1.6.0
For example:
(will give me items categorized with 'seafood' or 'fruit')
(will give me items categorized with 'meat')
(will give me items categorized with 'petfood' or 'fruit')

    This can be done, its all down to your coding you can pass optional params to Slim it would be down to you how the logic of this works.

    Even the number of criteria is unknown? << now 2 criteria
    It can be 1, 2, ... 100, ..., 1000 criterias

    I got 404 Page Not Found when I do this

    $app->get('/test/:qwe(/:asd)', 'qweqwe');
    function qweqwe($qwe, $asd=null){

    I spoke to Josh and wildcard catchall routes won't be available until 1.7, so currently you will have to think of another option.

    You would get an 404 not found since you are passing 3 params and Slim is looking for max 2 params.

    This is actually possible using route conditions and route middleware to perform the parsing.

    I blogged about it here:
