Mojolicious::Plugin::Args - gives you back the request parameters as a simple %args hash, even if it's posted in json.


version 0.05


Route something like this:

    package App;
    use Mojo::Base 'Mojolicious';

    sub startup {
        my $self = shift;

        $self->plugin( 'Mojolicious::Plugin::Args' );

        my $r = $self->routes;

        $r->any( '/example/test' )->to( 'example#test' );

Here's the controller:

    package App::Example;
    use Mojo::Base 'Mojolicious::Controller';

    sub test {
        my $self = shift;
        my %args = $self->args;

        $self->log->debug( 'args', $self->dumper( \%args ) );
        $self->render( json => \%args );

Now send a POST to it (jQuery example):

    $.ajax( {
        type: 'POST'
        ,url: '/example/test'
        ,contentType: 'application/json'
        ,dataType: 'json'
        ,data: JSON.stringify( { foo: 'bar' } )
    } );

Inspect the response. Keen. Try a GET on the endpoint with ".json" typed (/example/test.json) and a json query string variable (?json=...). Same result.

    $.ajax( {
        type: 'GET'
        ,url: '/example/test.json?json='+ JSON.stringify( { foo: 'bar' } )
    } );

Also, try regular query string vars (e.g. ?foo=bar&baz=foo) and form-url-encoded POST stuff. Works the same. All-in-one: no more dealing with the stupid param helper.
