Catalyst::Model::Curio - Curio Model for Catalyst.


Create your model class:

    package MyApp::Model::Cache;
    use Moo;
    use strictures 2;
    use namespace::clean;
    extends 'Catalyst::Model::Curio';
        class  => 'MyApp::Service::Cache',

Then use it in your controllers:

    my $chi = $c->model('Cache::geo_ip')->chi();

See "SYNOPSIS" in Curio as this SYNOPSIS is based on it.


This module glues Curio classes into Catalyst's model system.

This distribution also comes with Catalyst::Helper::Model::Curio which makes it somewhat simpler to create your Catalyst model class.

You may want to check out "Use Curio Directly" in Curio for an alternative viewpoint on using Catalyst models when you are already using Curio.


There are several ways to handle keys in your Curio models because Curio classes can optionally support keys.

No Keys

A Curio class which does not support keys just means you don't set the "key" configuration.

Single Key

If your Curio class does support keys you can choose to create a model for each key you want exposed in catalyst by specifying the "key" configuration in each model for each key you want available in Catalyst. Each model would have the same "class".

Multiple Keys

If your Curio class supports keys and you do not set the "key" configuration then the model will automatically create pseudo models for each key.

This is done by appending each declared key to your model name. You can see this in the "SYNOPSIS" where the model name is Cache but since "key" is not set, and the Curio class does have declared keys then the way you get the model is by appending ::geo_ip to the model name, or whatever key you want to access.



The Curio class that this model wraps around.

This is required to be set, otherwise Catalyst will throw and exception when trying to load your model.


If your Curio class supports keys then, if set, this forces your model to interact with one key only.


By default when you (per the "SYNOPSIS"):


It will call the fetch method on your "class" which will return a Curio object. If you'd like, you can change this to call a different method, returning something else of your choice.

Thanks to ZipRecruiter for encouraging their employees to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. Without their dedication to quality software development this distribution would not exist.
