Is there any specific reason that you put get("/ideas/:slug",.....) before post("/ideas/:slug",....)?

I know that before() method and after() method should always put on top/bottom. But anything between them, does the order matters?

The major concern is going to be that the route chosen is the first to match on the URI. In our little app, it doesn't matter. Another concern is readability and maintainability.
