NAME ^

CGI::Application::Plugin::View::HTML::Template - Automatically render HTML::Templates in CGI::Application

SYNOPSIS ^

  use base CGI::Application;
  use CGI::Application::Plugin::View::HTML::Template;
  use CGI::Application::Plugin::Stash; # Recommended
  
  sub setup {
    my $self = shift;
    $self->start_mode('mode1');
    $self->mode_param('rm');
    $self->run_modes(
            'mode1' => 'do_stuff',
             ...
    );
  }
  
  sub do_stuff {
  
    $self->stash->{foo} = 'bar';
  
    $self->stash->{template} = $self->load_tmpl('some.tmpl');
  
    return;
  
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

CGI::Application::Plugin::View adds Catalyst-like view processing to CGI::Application. This module automatically renders templates without setting template params or calling the template output method.

This module has no methods. Simply store your template and var(s) (CGI::Application::Plugin::Stash is recommended), and return from your runmode without returning template output. This module will automatically populate variables found in your template, and output it.

This module was inspired by Plugin::Stash. When I read the Catalyst::Manual::Tutorial two things seemed elegant to me: Stash and the way the template is processed automatically when the controller method is left. When I saw Plugin::Stash it caused me to remember the other thing I liked. So, I created this module. It doesn't do much. At a minimum it's a simple example of how to use CGI::Application's "add_callback" to postrun.
