I would like to redirect pages using a button with this function in javascript:

window.location.replace( "url", );

where do you want to put it? Are you writing your page in Julia or in HTML? you can add scripts with script()

I'm using Stipple.jl. The idea would be that when you click on a button, you perform a certain validation and redirect to another page of the application. I tried with the redirect method, but I was successful.

I thought about the solution in this script, but I don't know if it would be the best solution.

I think about doing this redirection in the control layer.

Right now I can think of two ways of doing do it all inside a route, like

route("/validate_and_redirect") do
    if validate()  # replace with your validation function

or you define a redirect function to be triggered by a button.

function ui()
        btn("Redirect", @click("redirectTo('/new_path')")),
        h1("Average of random numbers"), 
        script("function redirectTo(url) { window.location.replace(url); }")

Another way would be to trigger the javascript redirect from the backend after validation, but I'm not sure how to go about it.
