NAME

Catalyst::Controller::MIME - Multipart MIME viewer via Catalyst

SYNOPSIS

  package MyApp::Controller::MimeView;
  use Moose;
  use namespace::autoclean;
  use Email::MIME;
  
  BEGIN {extends 'Catalyst::Controller::MIME'; }
  
  sub get_mime {
    my ($self, $c, $id) = @_;
    
    my $mime_content = $c->model('SomeModel')->get_content_by_id($id)
      or return undef;
    
    return Email::MIME->new($mime_content);
  }
  
  1;

Then, access URLs like the following to view MIME objects:

  # View MIME object with id '1234'
  http://localhost:3000/mimeview/view/1234
  
  # View part 1 of a MIME object with id '1234'
  http://localhost:3000/mimeview/view/1234/1
  
  # View part 3 of part 1 of a MIME object with id '1234'
  http://localhost:3000/mimeview/view/1234/1/3
  
  # Download MIME object with id '1234'
  http://localhost:3000/mimeview/content/1234

DESCRIPTION

Quick and dirty Catalyst Controller interface for viewing MIME objects, including multipart MIME objects with rich content and embedded images, such as those typically generated by rich-text E-Mails and MHTML files. This module might be used as an E-Mail viewer, but can also be used to view any MIME content, including *.mht files, image attachments, and so on.

METHODS

get_mime

Method to be defined in consuming class used to resolve an id into an Email::MIME object. Must return an Email::MIME object. See Synopsis above for example.

CONFIG PARAMS

get_mime_coderef

Alternative way to supply the get_mime() method as a CodeRef that can be passed as a config param. If defined, the real get_mime method will be ignored.

expose_methods

Bool option for debug purposes. Allows calling methods on the Email::MIME object directly and dumping the output. For example:

  # Dump the output of $MIME->debug_structure() for id '1234'
  http://localhost:3000/mimeview/method/debug_structure/1234/

Defaults to false (0).
