Catalyst::Plugin::CustomErrorMessage - Catalyst plugin to have more "cute" error message.


        use Catalyst qw( CustomErrorMessage );
        # optional (values in this example are the defaults)
        __PACKAGE__->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'uri-for-not-found'} = '/';
        __PACKAGE__->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'error-template'}    = 'error.tt2';
        __PACKAGE__->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'content-type'}      = 'text/html; charset=utf-8';
        __PACKAGE__->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'view-name'}         = 'TT';
        __PACKAGE__->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'response-status'}   = 500;


You can use this module if you want to get rid of:

        (en) Please come back later
        (fr) SVP veuillez revenir plus tard
        (de) Bitte versuchen sie es spaeter nocheinmal
        (at) Konnten's bitt'schoen spaeter nochmal reinschauen
        (no) Vennligst prov igjen senere
        (dk) Venligst prov igen senere
        (pl) Prosze sprobowac pozniej

What it does is that it inherites finalize_error to $c object.

See finalize_error() function.



In debug mode this function is skipped and user sees the original Catalyst error page in debug mode.

In "production" (non debug) mode it will return page with template set in


$c->stash->{'finalize_error'} will be set to contain the error message.

For non existing resources (like misspelled url-s) if will do http redirect to


$c->flash->{'finalize_error'} will be set to contain the error message.

To set different view name configure:

        $c->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'view-name'} = 'Mason';

Content-type and response status can be configured via:

        $c->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'content-type'}    = 'text/plain; charset=utf-8';
        $c->config->{'custom-error-message'}->{'response-status'} = 500;
