OpenInteract2::Observer::UsePerlPost - Observer to post the contents of an object to a use.perl.org journal
# In your action.ini we need data to configure the journal post; this # can also be set programmatically if for instance you need to use # this for multiple users on your system [someaction] # ... normal action parameters ... # observer parameters # field with subject of post use_perl_subject = title # field with content of post use_perl_content = news_item # your use.perl userid use_perl_user_id = 55 # your password use_perl_password = foobar # In conf/observer.ini: # declare the observer [observer] useperl = OpenInteract2::Observer::UsePerlPost # hook it into the 'news' action so that 'post add' events fired will # add an entry into the journal [map] useperl = news
This class is an OpenInteract2::Action observer that takes the object just added and fires off a posting to a
use.perl.org journal with the contents. Thus keeping you in touch with your Perl peeps while still using your favorite application server to hold all your data.
If this parameter set in the action or in the OpenInteract2::Request to 'yes' or 'true', this observer won't kick off the journal addition. This allows you to stick a checkbox on the form that adds your object to skip the use.perl part if you want. (For instance, folks there might not dig your weekly cat photo post...)
Field/method to pull the subject of the use.perl post from.
Field/method to pull the content of the use.perl post from.
Text to use as the footer of the message posted. Any instance of '$LINK' will be replaced by my best guess for the URL to display this object, and '$ID' will be replaced by the object ID.
ID of the user to use for authentication.
Password for the given user ID.
If you need to change either 'use_perl_proxy' or 'use_perl_uri' please contact the author since it probably means the API has changed and the default behavior of this module should be updated.
We modify the content extracted from your object in the following ways:
