NAME

OpenGuides - A complete web application for managing a collaboratively-written guide to a city or town.

DESCRIPTION

The OpenGuides software provides the framework for a collaboratively-written city guide. It is similar to a wiki but provides somewhat more structured data storage allowing you to annotate wiki pages with information such as category, location, and much more. It provides searching facilities including "find me everything within a certain distance of this place". Every page includes a link to a machine-readable (RDF) version of the page.

METHODS

new
  my $guide = OpenGuides->new( config => $config );
wiki

An accessor, returns the underlying CGI::Wiki object.

config

An accessor, returns the underlying Config::Tiny object.

locator

An accessor, returns the underlying CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Locator::UK object.

differ

An accessor, returns the underlying CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff object.

display_node
  # Print node to STDOUT.
  $guide->display_node(
                        id      => "Calthorpe Arms",
                        version => 2,
                      );

  # Or return output as a string (useful for writing tests).
  $guide->display_node(
                        id            => "Calthorpe Arms",
                        return_output => 1,
                      );

If version is omitted then the latest version will be displayed.

display_diffs
  $guide->display_diffs(
                         id            => "Home Page",
                         version       => 6,
                         other_version => 5,
                       );

  # Or return output as a string (useful for writing tests).
  my $output = $guide->display_diffs(
                                      id            => "Home Page",
                                      version       => 6,
                                      other_version => 5,
                                      return_output => 1,
                                    );

  # Or return the hash of variables that will be passed to the template
  # (not including those set additionally by OpenGuides::Template).
  my %vars = $guide->display_diffs(
                                    id             => "Home Page",
                                    version        => 6,
                                    other_version  => 5,
                                    return_tt_vars => 1,
                                  );
find_within_distance
  $guide->find_within_distance(
                                id => $node,
                                metres => $q->param("distance_in_metres")
                              );
show_index
  $guide->show_index(
                      type   => "category",
                      value  => "pubs",
                    );

  # RDF version.
  $guide->show_index(
                      type   => "locale",
                      value  => "Holborn",
                      format => "rdf",
                    );

  # Or return output as a string (useful for writing tests).
  $guide->show_index(
                      type          => "category",
                      value         => "pubs",
                      return_output => 1,
                    );
list_all_versions
  $guide->list_all_versions ( id => "Home Page" );

BUGS AND CAVEATS

At the moment, the location data uses a United-Kingdom-specific module, so the location features might not work so well outside the UK.
