NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::RedirectAndDetach - Redirect and detach at the same time

SYNOPSIS

    # load the plugin

    use Catalyst qw( RedirectAndDetach );

    # in your controller ...

    sub admin
    {
        my $self = shift;
        my $c    = shift;

        $c->redirect_and_detach('/')
            unless $c->stash()->{user}->is_admin();

        ...
    }

DESCRIPTION

I generally find that if I want to issue a redirect in my web app, I want to stop processing right there. This plugin adds a ridiculously simply method to your Catalyst objects to do just that.

The reason to use detach() instead of simply returning from the current sub is that detach() throws an exception that effectively aborts all execution, rather than simply exiting the current method.

METHODS

This class provides one method:

$c->redirect_and_detach( $uri, $status )

The $uri parameter is required, and $status is optional. Internally, this just calls redirect() on the Response object, followed by detach().
