VERSION

Version 0.210

SYNOPSIS

    # imagine you have a script/app called 'foo' . . . 

    use Log::Any::Adapter ( 'File', "/var/tmp/foo.log" );
    use App::CELL qw( $CELL $log $meta $site );

    # load config params and messages from sitedir
    my $status = $CELL->load( sitedir => '/etc/foo' );
    return $status unless $status->ok;

    # set appname to FOO_APPNAME (a config param just loaded from sitedir)
    $CELL->appname( $CELL->FOO_APPNAME || "foo" );

    # write to the log
    $log->notice("Configuration loaded from /etc/foo");

    # get value of site configuration parameter FOO_PARAM
    my $val = $site->FOO_PARAM;

    # get a list of all supported languages
    my @supp_lang = $CELL->supported_languages;

    # determine if a language is supported
    print "sk supported" if $CELL->language_supported('sk');

    # get message object and text in default language
    $status = $CELL->msg('FOO_INFO_MSG');
    my $fmsg = $status->payload if $status->ok;
    my $text = $fmsg->text;

    # get message object and text in default language
    # (message that takes arguments)
    $fmsg = $CELL->msg('BAR_ARGS_MSG', "arg1", "arg2");
    print $fmsg->text, "\n";

    # get text of message in a different language
    my $sk_text = $fmsg->lang('sk')->text;

DESCRIPTION

This is the top-level module of App::CELL, the Configuration, Error-handling, Localization, and Logging framework for applications (or scripts) written in Perl.

For details, read the POD in the App::CELL distro. For an introduction, read App::CELL::Guide.

EXPORTS

This module provides the following exports:

$CELL - App::CELL singleton object
$log - App::CELL::Log singleton object
$meta - App::CELL::Config singleton object
$core - App::CELL::Config singleton object
$site - App::CELL::Config singleton object

METHODS

appname

If no argument is given, returns the appname -- i.e. the name of the application or script that is using App::CELL for its configuration, error handling, etc.

If an argument is given, assumes that it denotes the desired appname and sets it. Also initializes the logger.

enviro

Get the enviro attribute, i.e. the name of the environment variable containing the sitedir

loaded

Get the current load status, which can be any of the following: 0 nothing loaded yet 'SHARE' sharedir loaded 'BOTH' sharedir _and_ sitedir loaded

sharedir

Get the sharedir attribute, i.e. the full path of the site configuration directory (available only after sharedir has been successfully loaded)

sitedir

Get the sitedir attribute, i.e. the full path of the site configuration directory (available only after sitedir has been successfully loaded)

supported_languages

Get list of supported languages. Equivalent to:

    $site->CELL_SUPP_LANG || [ 'en ]

language_supported

Determine if a given language is supported.

load

Attempt to load messages and configuration parameters from the sharedir and, possibly, the sitedir as well.

Takes: a PARAMHASH that should include at least one of enviro or sitedir (if both are given, enviro takes precedence with sitedir as a fallback). The PARAMHASH can also include a verbose parameter which, when set to a true value, causes the load routine to log more verbosely.

Returns: an App::CELL::Status object, which could be any of the following: OK success WARN previous call already succeeded, nothing to do ERR failure

On success, it also sets the CELL_META_START_DATETIME meta parameter.

Status constructors

The following "factory" makes a bunch of status constructor methods (wrappers for App::CELL::Status->new )

status_crit

Constructor for 'CRIT' status objects

status_critical

Constructor for 'CRIT' status objects

status_debug

status_error

status_trace

status_warn

Constructor for 'WARN' status objects

status_warning

Constructor for 'WARNING' status objects

msg
