Template::Plugin::Handy - handy vmethods for Template Toolkit
[% USE Handy; mything.dump_data; mything.dump_stderr; mything.as_json; %]
Handy virtual methods I always use in my Template Toolkit files, especially for debugging.
Only new or overridden method are documented here.
Replacement for the Dumper plugin. You can call this method on any variable to see its Data::Dump representation in HTML-safe manner.
[% myvar.dump_data %]
Like dump_data but prints to STDERR instead of returning HTML-escaped string. Returns undef.
Encode the variable as a JSON string. Wrapper around the JSON->encode method. The string will be encoded as UTF-8, and the special JSON flags for converted_blessed and allow_blessed are
true by default.
Increment a scalar number by one. Aliased as a scalar vmethod as 'inc'.
Decrement a scalar number by one. Aliased as a scalar vmethod as 'dec'.
Sort an array or hash ref of objects according to method_name. The sort assumes a
cmp comparison and the return value of method_name is run through lc() first.
Returns a new sorted arrayref.
