Jifty::View::Declare::CRUD - Provides typical CRUD views to a model


  package App::View;
  use Jifty::View::Declare -base;

  use Jifty::View::Declare::CRUD;
  Jifty::View::Declare::CRUD->mount_view('Category', 'App::View::Tag', '/tag');


This class provides a set of views that may be used by a model to display Create/Read/Update/Delete views using the Template::Declare templating language.

Basically, you can use this class to do most (and maybe all) of the work you need to manipulate and view your records.


mount_view MODELCASS VIEWCLASS /path

Call this method in your appliation's view class to add the CRUD views you're looking for. Only the first argument is required.



This is the name of the model that you want to generate the CRUD views for. This is the only required parameter. Leave off the parts of the class name prior to and including the "Model" part. (I.e., App::Model::User should be passed as just User).


This is the name of the class that will be generated to hold the CRUD views of your model. If not given, it will be set to: App::View::MODELCLASS. If given, it should be the full name of the view class.


This is the path where you can reach the CRUD views for this model in your browser. If not given, this will be set to the model class name in lowercase letters. (I.e., User would be found at /user if not passed explicitly).


This method returns the type of object this CRUD view has been generated for. This is normally the model class parameter that was passed to "mount_view".


This is a helper that returns the path to a given fragment. The only argument is the name of the fragment. It returns a absolute base path to the fragment page.

This will attempt to lookup a method named fragment_for_FRAGMENT, where FRAGMENT is the argument passed. If that method exists, it's result is used as the returned path.

Otherwise, the "fragment_base_path" is joined to the passed fragment name to create the return value.

If you really want to mess with this, you may need to read the source code of this class.


This is a helper for "fragment_for". It looks up the current template using "current_template" in Template::Declare::Tags, finds it's parent path and then returns that.

If you really want to mess with this, you may need to read the source code of this class.

_get_record $id

Given an $id, returns a record object for the CRUD view's model class.


Returns a list of all the columns that this REST view should display



Contains the master form and page region containing the list of items. This is mainly a wrapper for the "list" fragment.


The search fragment displays a search screen connected to the search action of the module.

See Jifty::Action::Record::Search.


This fragment displays the data held by a single model record.

private template view_item_controls

Used by the view fragment to show the edit link for each record.


The update fragment displays a form for editing the data held within a single model record.

See Jifty::Action::Record::Update.

edit_item_controls $record $action

The controls we should be rendering in the 'edit' region for a given fragment


The list template provides an interactive list for showing a list of records in the record collection, adding new records, deleting records, and updating records.


This routine returns how many items should be shown on each page of a listing. The default is 25.


This private template renders a region to show an expandable region for a search widget.


This private template renders a region to show a the new_item template.


Prints "No items found."

list_items $collection $item_path

Renders a div of class list with a region per item.

paging_top $collection $page_number

Paging for your list, rendered at the top of the list

paging_bottom $collection $page_number

Paging for your list, rendered at the bottom of the list

edit_item $action

Renders the action $Action, handing it the array ref returned by "display_columns".

new_item ^

The new_item template provides a form for creating new model records. See Jifty::Action::Record::Create.
