NAME

MojoX::Renderer - MIME Type Based Renderer

SYNOPSIS

    use MojoX::Renderer;

    my $renderer = MojoX::Renderer->new;

DESCRIPTION

MojoX::Renderer is the standard Mojolicious renderer. It turns your stashed data structures into content.

ATTRIBUTES

MojoX::Types implements the following attributes.

default_format

    my $default = $renderer->default_format;
    $renderer   = $renderer->default_format('html');

The default format to render if format is not set in the stash. The renderer will use MojoX::Types to look up the content MIME type.

default_handler

    my $default = $renderer->default_handler;
    $renderer   = $renderer->default_handler('epl');

The default template handler to use for rendering. There are two handlers in this distribution.

epl

Embedded Perl Lite handled by Mojolicious::Plugin::EplRenderer.

ep

Embedded Perl handled by Mojolicious::Plugin::EpRenderer.

default_status

    my $default = $renderer->default_status;
    $renderer   = $renderer->default_status(404);

The default status to set when rendering content, defaults to 200.

default_template_class

    my $default = $renderer->default_template_class;
    $renderer   = $renderer->default_template_class('main');

The renderer will use this class to look for templates in the __DATA__ section.

detect_templates

    my $detect = $renderer->detect_templates;
    $renderer  = $renderer->detect_templates(1);

Template auto detection, the renderer will try to select the right template and renderer automatically. A very powerful alternative to default_handler that allows parallel use of multiple template systems.

encoding

    my $encoding = $renderer->encoding;
    $renderer    = $renderer->encoding('koi8-r');

Will encode the content if set.

handler

    my $handler = $renderer->handler;
    $renderer   = $renderer->handler({epl => sub { ... }});

Registered handlers.

helper

    my $helper = $renderer->helper;
    $renderer  = $renderer->helper({url_for => sub { ... }});

Registered helpers.

layout_prefix

    my $prefix = $renderer->layout_prefix;
    $renderer  = $renderer->layout_prefix('layouts');

Directory to look for layouts in, defaults to layouts.

root

   my $root  = $renderer->root;
   $renderer = $renderer->root('/foo/bar/templates');
   

Directory to look for templates in.

types

    my $types = $renderer->types;
    $renderer = $renderer->types(MojoX::Types->new);

MojoX::Types object to use for looking up MIME types.

METHODS

MojoX::Renderer inherits all methods from Mojo::Base and implements the following ones.

new

    my $renderer = MojoX::Renderer->new;

Construct a new renderer.

add_handler

    $renderer = $renderer->add_handler(epl => sub { ... });
    

Add a new handler to the renderer. See Mojolicious::Plugin::EpRenderer for a sample renderer.

add_helper

    $renderer = $renderer->add_helper(url_for => sub { ... });

Add a new helper to the renderer. See Mojolicious::Plugin::EpRenderer for sample helpers.

get_inline_template

    my $template = $renderer->get_inline_template($c, 'foo.html.ep');

Get an inline template by name, usually used by handlers.

render

    my $success = $renderer->render($c);

    $c->stash->{partial} = 1;
    my $output = $renderer->render($c);

Render output through one of the Mojo renderers. This renderer requires some configuration, at the very least you will need to have a default format and a default handler as well as a template or text/json. See Mojolicious::Controller for a more user friendly interface.

template_name

    my $template = $renderer->template_name({
        template => 'foo/bar',
        format   => 'html',
        handler  => 'epl'
    });
    

Builds a template name based on an options hash with template, format and handler.

template_path

    my $path = $renderer->template_path({
        template => 'foo/bar',
        format   => 'html',
        handler  => 'epl'
    });

Builds a full template path based on an options hash with template, format and handler.
