DESCRIPTION

Apache2::DirBasedHandler::TT, is an subclass of Apache2::DirBasedHandler with modified to allow easy use of Template Toolkit templates for content generation.

init

init calls get_tt to get the template object, and stuffs it into the hash it gets back from the super class.

get_tt

get_tt returns a Template Toolkit object, and a hash reference of variables which will be passed into the TT process call. You should really override this function with to create the Template object appropriate to your environment.

process_template

process_template is a helper function to generate a page based using the template object, variables, and template passed in. It sets the content_type of the response to the value of the fifth argument.

DEPENDENCIES

This module requires modperl 2 (http://perl.apache.org), and libapreq (http://httpd.apache.org/apreq/) which must be installed seperately. It also depends on Apache2::DirBasedHandler
