NAME

Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole - (DEPRECATED) Apply roles to action instances

VERSION

version 0.17

SYNOPSIS

    package MyApp::Controller::Foo;

    use Moose;
    use namespace::autoclean;

    BEGIN { extends 'Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole' }

    sub bar : Local Does('Moo') { ... }

DESCRIPTION

This module allows one to apply Moose::Roles to the Catalyst::Actions for different controller methods.

For that a Does attribute is provided. That attribute takes an argument, that determines the role, which is going to be applied. If that argument is prefixed with +, it is assumed to be the full name of the role. If it's prefixed with ~, the name of your application followed by ::ActionRole:: is prepended. If it isn't prefixed with + or ~, the role name will be searched for in @INC according to the rules for role prefix searching.

It's possible to apply roles to all actions of a controller without specifying the Does keyword in every action definition:

    package MyApp::Controller::Bar

    use Moose;
    use namespace::autoclean;

    BEGIN { extends 'Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole' }

    __PACKAGE__->config(
        action_roles => ['Foo', '~Bar'],
    );

    # Has Catalyst::ActionRole::Foo and MyApp::ActionRole::Bar applied.
    #
    # If MyApp::ActionRole::Foo exists and is loadable, it will take
    # precedence over Catalyst::ActionRole::Foo.
    #
    # If MyApp::ActionRole::Bar exists and is loadable, it will be loaded,
    # but even if it doesn't exist Catalyst::ActionRole::Bar will not be loaded.
    sub moo : Local { ... }

Additionally, roles can be applied to selected actions without specifying Does using "action" in Catalyst::Controller and configured with "action_args" in Catalyst::Controller:

    package MyApp::Controller::Baz;

    use Moose;
    use namespace::autoclean;

    BEGIN { extends 'Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole' }

    __PACKAGE__->config(
        action_roles => [qw( Foo )],
        action       => {
            some_action    => { Does => [qw( ~Bar )] },
            another_action => { Does => [qw( +MyActionRole::Baz )] },
        },
        action_args  => {
            another_action => { customarg => 'arg1' },
        }
    );

    # has Catalyst::ActionRole::Foo and MyApp::ActionRole::Bar applied
    sub some_action : Local { ... }

    # has Catalyst::ActionRole::Foo and MyActionRole::Baz applied
    # and associated action class would get additional arguments passed
    sub another_action : Local { ... }

ATTRIBUTES

_action_role_prefix

This class attribute stores an array reference of role prefixes to search for role names in if they aren't prefixed with + or ~. It defaults to [ 'Catalyst::ActionRole::' ]. See "role prefix searching".

_action_roles

This attribute stores an array reference of role names that will be applied to every action of this controller. It can be set by passing a action_roles argument to the constructor. The same expansions as for Does will be performed.

METHODS

gather_action_roles(\%action_args)

Gathers the list of roles to apply to an action with the given %action_args.

DEPRECATION NOTICE

As of version 5.90013, Catalyst has merged this functionality into the core Catalyst::Controller. You should no longer use it for new development and we recommend switching to the core controller as soon as practical.

ROLE PREFIX SEARCHING

Roles specified with no prefix are looked up under a set of role prefixes. The first prefix is always MyApp::ActionRole:: (with MyApp replaced as appropriate for your application); the following prefixes are taken from the _action_role_prefix attribute.
