HELPERS ^

Mojolicious::Plugin::DefaultHelpers implements the following helpers.

accepts

  my $formats = $c->accepts;
  my $format  = $c->accepts('html', 'json', 'txt');

Select best possible representation for resource from Accept request header, format stash value or format GET/POST parameter with "accepts" in Mojolicious::Renderer, defaults to returning the first extension if no preference could be detected.

  # Check if JSON is acceptable
  $c->render(json => {hello => 'world'}) if $c->accepts('json');

  # Check if JSON was specifically requested
  $c->render(json => {hello => 'world'}) if $c->accepts('', 'json');

  # Unsupported representation
  $c->render(data => '', status => 204)
    unless my $format = $c->accepts('html', 'json');

  # Detected representations to select from
  my @formats = @{$c->accepts};

app

  %= app->secrets->[0]

Alias for "app" in Mojolicious::Controller.

b

  %= b('test 123')->b64_encode

Turn string into a Mojo::ByteStream object.

c

  %= c(qw(a b c))->shuffle->join

Turn list into a Mojo::Collection object.

config

  %= config 'something'

Alias for "config" in Mojo.

content

  %= content foo => begin
    test
  % end
  %= content bar => 'Hello World!'
  %= content 'foo'
  %= content 'bar'
  %= content

Store partial rendered content in named buffer and retrieve it, defaults to retrieving the named buffer content, which is commonly used for the renderers layout and extends features. Note that new content will be ignored if the named buffer is already in use.

content_for

  % content_for foo => begin
    test
  % end
  %= content_for 'foo'

Append partial rendered content to named buffer and retrieve it. Note that named buffers are shared with the "content" helper.

  % content_for message => begin
    Hello
  % end
  % content_for message => begin
    world!
  % end
  %= content_for 'message'

csrf_token

  %= csrf_token

  % if (current_route 'login') {
    Welcome to Mojolicious!
  % }
  %= current_route

Check or get name of current route.

delay

  $c->delay(sub {...}, sub {...});

Disable automatic rendering and use "delay" in Mojo::IOLoop to manage callbacks and control the flow of events, which can help you avoid deep nested closures and memory leaks that often result from continuation-passing style. Calls "render_exception" in Mojolicious::Controller if an error occured in one of the steps, breaking the chain.

  # Longer version
  $c->render_later;
  my $delay = Mojo::IOLoop->delay(sub {...}, sub {...});
  $delay->catch(sub { $c->render_exception(pop) })->wait;
