NAME ^

DBIx::Class::Helper::Row::ToJSON - Remove the boilerplate from your TO_JSON functions

VERSION ^

version 2.019000

SYNOPSIS ^

 package MyApp::Schema::Result::KittenRobot;

 use base 'DBIx::Class::Core';

 __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw{Helper::Row::ToJSON});

 __PACKAGE__->table('KittenRobot');
 __PACKAGE__->add_columns(
    id => {
       data_type         => 'integer',
       is_auto_increment => 1,
    },
    kitten => {
       data_type         => 'integer',
    },
    robot => {
       data_type         => 'text',
       is_nullable       => 1,
    },
    your_mom => {
       data_type         => 'blob',
       is_nullable       => 1,
       is_serializable   => 1,
    },
 );

 1;

This helper adds a JSON method like the following:

 sub TO_JSON {
    return {
       id       => $self->id,
       kitten   => $self->kitten,
       # robot  => $self->robot,    # <-- doesn't serialize text columns
       your_mom => $self->your_mom, # <-- normally wouldn't but explicitly
                                    #     asked for in the column spec above
    }
 }

METHODS ^

_is_column_serializable

 $self->_is_column_serializable('kitten')

returns true if a column should be serializable or not. Currently this marks everything as serializable unless is_serializable is set to false, or data_type is a blob, text, or ntext columns. If you wanted to only have explicit serialization you might override this method to look like this:

 sub _is_column_serializable {
    my ( $self, $column ) = @_;

    my $info = $self->column_info($column);

    return defined $info->{is_serializable} && $info->{is_serializable};
 }

serializable_columns

 $self->serializable_columns

simply returns a list of columns that TO_JSON should serialize.

TO_JSON

 $self->TO_JSON

returns a hashref representing your object. Override this method to add data to the returned hashref:

 sub TO_JSON {
    my $self = shift;

    return {
       customer_name => $self->customer->name,
       %{ $self->next::method },
    }
 }
