Catalyst::Plugin::SimpleCAS - Plugin interface to Catalyst::Controller::SimpleCAS
Later on, in your scripts or other backend code:
my $c = 'MyApp';
my $CAS = $c->CAS; # sugar to get the Controller instance
# Add content as a string/scalar:
my $sha1 = $CAS->add("My cool text!\nbla bla bla");
# Add content from a file:
my $sha1 = $CAS->add("/path/to/regular/file");
# Add content by supplying a filehandle:
my $fh = Path::Class::File::file("/path/to/regular/file")->openr;
my $sha1 = $CAS->add($fh);
# Fetch content as a string/scalar:
my $data = $CAS->fetch($sha1);
# Fetch content as a filehandle:
my $data = $CAS->fetch_fh($sha1);
This class provides a simple Catalyst Plugin interface to Catalyst::Controller::SimpleCAS. All it does is inject the SimpleCAS controller into the application and sets up the sugar method CAS in the main app class/context ($c).
This module was originally developed for and within RapidApp before being extracted into its own module. This module provides server-side functionality which can be used for any Catalyst application, however, it is up to the developer to write the associated front-end interfaces to consume its API (unless you are using RapidApp to begin with).
See Catalyst::Controller::SimpleCAS for more information and API documentation.
Namespace of the SimpleCAS controller to inject. Defaults to 'SimpleCAS'
Convenience method to return the SimpelCAS controller. Assuming the controller_namespace is left at its default, these are equivelent:
my $CAS = $c->controller('SimpleCAS');
# same as:
my $CAS = $c->CAS;
Method which gets called automatically that does the actual injection of the controller into the Catalyst application. Should never be called directly. It is being provided in case the need arises to hook at this point in the code (i.e. with an around modifier)
