NAME ^

POE::Component::Captcha::reCAPTCHA - A POE implementation of the reCAPTCHA API

SYNOPSIS ^

 # Create a reCAPTCHA component

 my $poco = POE::Component::Captcha::reCAPTCHA->spawn( alias => 'recaptcha' );

 # Start your own sessions etc.

 # When you need to check a captcha.

 my %opts = (
              event       => 'recaptcha',
              privatekey  => 'your private key here',
              remoteip    => $ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'},
              challenge   => $challenge,
              response    => $response,
              _arbitary   => 'some stuff',
 );

 $poe_kernel->post( 
                    'recaptcha', 
                    'check_answer', 
                    \%opts
 );

 # And define an event handler for it

 sub recaptcha {
    my ($kernel,$result) = @_[KERNEL,ARG0];
    
    if ( $result->{is_valid} ) {
        print "Yes!";
    }
    else {
        # Error
        print $result->{error};
    }

    return;
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::Captcha::reCAPTCHA is a POE implementation of Captcha::reCAPTCHA. It provides access to various Captcha::reCAPTCHA methods and a non-blocking mechanism for checking the answer provided by users.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

spawn

Creates a new POE::Component::Captcha::reCAPTCHA session.

Takes one optional argument alias so you can set an alias on the component to send it events later.

Returns an object reference which the following methods can be used on.

METHODS ^

session_id

Takes no arguments. Returns the POE::Session ID of the component.

shutdown

Takes no arguments. Terminates the component.

check_answer

After the user has filled out the HTML form, including their answer for the CAPTCHA, use check_answer to check their answer when they submit the form. The user's answer will be in two form fields, recaptcha_challenge_field and recaptcha_response_field. The component will make an HTTP request to the reCAPTCHA server and verify the user's answer.

Requires a HASHREF as an argument with the following keys, all of which are required:

event

The name of the event that should be sent to the requesting session with the reply from the reCAPTCHA server.

privatekey

Your reCAPTCHA private key, from the API Signup Page.

remoteip

The user's IP address, in the format 192.168.0.1.

challenge

The value of the form field recaptcha_challenge_field

response

The value of the form field recaptcha_response_field.

See OUTPUT EVENTS below for what will be sent to your session in reply.

These methods are directly equivalent to their Captcha::reCAPTCHA counterparts. ( in fact they merely map to an instance of Captcha::reCAPTCHA that the component creates internally ). See Captcha::reCAPTCHA for more details.

get_html

Generates HTML to display the captcha.

get_options_setter

Enables customisation of look of the reCAPTCHA widget with some JavaScript settings.

INPUT EVENTS ^

These are POE events that the component will accept.

shutdown

Takes no arguments. Terminates the component.

check_answer

After the user has filled out the HTML form, including their answer for the CAPTCHA, use check_answer to check their answer when they submit the form. The user's answer will be in two form fields, recaptcha_challenge_field and recaptcha_response_field. The component will make an HTTP request to the reCAPTCHA server and verify the user's answer.

Requires a HASHREF as an argument with the following keys, all of which are required:

event

The name of the event that should be sent to the requesting session with the reply from the reCAPTCHA server.

privatekey

Your reCAPTCHA private key, from the API Signup Page.

remoteip

The user's IP address, in the format 192.168.0.1.

challenge

The value of the form field recaptcha_challenge_field

response

The value of the form field recaptcha_response_field.

See OUTPUT EVENTS below for what will be sent to your session in reply.

You may also set arbitary keys to pass arbitary data along with your request. These must be prefixed with an underscore _.

OUTPUT EVENTS ^

The component will send an event in response to check_answer. ARG0 of the event will be a HASHREF containing the key/values of the original request ( including any arbitary key/values passed ).

In addition the is_valid and error keys will indicate the status of the request to the reCAPTCHA server:

is_valid

If this is set to a true value then the request was successful and the challenge and response sent were valid.

error

If this is set then an error occurred.
