NAME ^

App::Navegante - a framework to build intrusive high order proxies

VERSION ^

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS ^

  $ navegante examples/program

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is mostly a place holder for the documentation. All the magic is done whith the navegante program.

To build an application using Navegante you need to have a program file. This program file is splitted in two major sections:

DSL oefinitions

The first section is used to specify application parameters using a well defined DSL, detailed in the next section.

Generic definitions

The second section is used to define any kind of functions needed by our application in Perl syntax.

Domain Specific Language

The statements that can currently be used are:

init(STRING)

The name of the function that is called in the beginning of every application call.

desc(STRING)

The function that prints the application's behavior.

formtitle(STRING)

Define the form's title of the application.

save

TODO

mail

TODO

filename(STRING)

The destination filename for the newly create application. If no filename is specified, prints to standard output.

feedback(STRING)

The function that is called when the application's feedback link is followed.

proc(STRING)

The function that is used to actually process the page content.

proctags(STRING)

The functions that should be called to process specific HTML tags content. For example:

proctags(h1=toitalic,h2=>underline)>

would call the function toitalic when processing H1 tag's content, and underline when processing H2 tag's content.

protect(LIST)

Comma separated list of HTML tags that will not be processed by the proc function. By default this list is: 'html','head','script' and 'title'.

livefeedback(STRING)

The function that is used to render the feedback section in the application's banner.

annotate(STRING)

The fucntion that is called when the form user data, in the application's banner is submitted.

iform(STRING)

Used to used the form that is going to be rendered in the application's banner. For example:

iform(name=text,"Set name!"=>submit)>

Would render a iframe with a two elements form: a text box named name and a submit button. See also iframe for a more elaborate method to define this form.

iframe(STRING)

If defining the form that is used in the banner is not enough, you can use iframe to define the name of a function that returns the entire iframe content. Note that iframe always takes precedence over iform in case you define both.

quit(STRING)

The function that is called when the appliccation's banner quit button is followed.

Generic Definitions

The space between "##" and EOF is just copied do application. Tipycally, it should include the implementation of the function described as arguments.

EXAMPLES ^

An example program file should look something like:

  filename(reverse)
  formtitle(Reverse Browsed Content)
  feedback(reverseFeedback)
  proc(reverseFuncion)
  desc(reverseDesc)

  ##

  sub reverseFunction {
  ...

For more examples refer see TODO.
