NAME

Catmandu::Exporter - Namespace for packages that can export

SYNOPSIS

    package Catmandu::Exporter::Foo;

    use Catmandu::Sane;
    use Moo;

    with 'Catmandu::Exporter'

    sub add {
        my ($self, $data) = @_;
        my $fh = $self->fh;
        $fh->print( ... );
    }

    package main;

    use Catmandu;

    my $exporter = Catmandu->exporter('Foo', file => "/tmp/output.txt");

DESCRIPTION

A Catmandu::Exporter is a Perl package that can export data. By default, data items are written to STDOUT. Optionally provide a file or fh parameter to write to a file, string, or handle. New exporter modules are expected to use the print method of fh.

Every Catmandu::Exporter is a Catmandu::Fixable thus provides a fix parameter and method to apply fixes to exported items.

Every Catmandu::Exporter is a Catmandu::Addable thus inherits the methods add and add_many.

CONFIGURATION

file

Write output to a local file given by its path or file handle. Alternatively a scalar reference can be passed to write to a string and a code reference can be used to write to a callback function.

fh

Write the output to an IO::Handle. If not specified, Catmandu::Util::io is used to create the output handle from the file argument or by using STDOUT.

encoding

Binmode of the output stream fh. Set to ":utf8" by default.

fix

An ARRAY of one or more fixes or file scripts to be applied to exported items.

METHODS

add

Adds one object to be exported.

add_many

Adds many objects to be exported. This can be either an ARRAY-ref or an Catmandu::Iterator. Returns a true value when the export was successful or undef on error.

count

Returns the number of items exported by this Catmandu::Exporter.

log

Returns the current logger.

SEE ALSO

See function export_to_string in module Catmandu.

The exporters Catmandu::Exporter::JSON, Catmandu::Exporter::YAML, Catmandu::Exporter::CSV, and Catmandu::Exporter::RIS are included in Catmandu core.
