Dancer::Engine - base class for Dancer engines
my $engine = Dancer::Engine->build( Serializer => 'JSON', $configuration );
Dancer has various engines such Serializer engines, Template engines, Logger engines and Session handlers engines. This is the base class for all Dancer engines.
If you're writing an engine of a common type (such as those mentioned above), you probably want to simply use their base class, which in turn use Dancer::Engine. For example, Template engines inherit from Dancer::Template::Abstract and Serializer engines inherit from Dancer::Serializer::Abstract. Those Abstract base classes inherit from Dancer::Engine.
If a new type of Dancer engine is created, it is best it inherits from this class.
The name of the engine, such as JSON, or Simple.
The type of the engine, such as Serializer, or Session.
Fetches the configuration of the engine.
my $configuration = $engine->config;
You can only set the configuration at initialization time, not after.
Builds and returns the engine.
my $engine = Dancer::Engine->build( $type => $name, $config );
