NAME ^

Template::Plugin::Handy - handy vmethods for Template Toolkit

SYNOPSIS ^

 [% USE Handy;
    mything.dump_data;
    mything.dump_stderr;
    mything.as_json;
 %]

DESCRIPTION ^

Handy virtual methods I always use in my Template Toolkit files, especially for debugging.

METHODS ^

Only new or overridden method are documented here.

dump_data

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 %]

dump_stderr

Like dump_data but prints to STDERR instead of returning HTML-escaped string. Returns undef.

as_json

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( n )

Increment a scalar number by one. Aliased as a scalar vmethod as 'inc'.

decrement( n )

Decrement a scalar number by one. Aliased as a scalar vmethod as 'dec'.

sort_by( method_name )

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.
