                                Type => 'text/plain',

                        }

        }

DESCRIPTION

This module is a wrapper for HTTP::Negotiate.

METHODS

choose_variant(%variants)

%options is a hash like this:

        %variants = (
                $identifier => \%options
        )

The key $identifier is a string that will be returned by choose_variant().

Valid keywords of hashref \%options:

Quality

A float point value between 0.000 and 1.000, describing the source quality (defaults to 1)

Type

A MIME media type (with no charset attributes, but other attributes like version)

Encoding

An encoding like gzip or compress

Charset

An encoding like utf-8 or iso-8859-1

Language

A language tag conforming to RFC 3066

Size

Number of bytes used to represent

Returns undef if no variant matched.

See HTTP::Negotiate for more information.

apply_variant(%options)

This method behaves like choose_variant but sets the according response headers if a variant matched.

negotiate($template_name)

This method returns $template_name with a suffixed language tag. The file needs to exist. This method behaves similiary to mod_negotiate of apache httpd.

Language tags must be specified in plugin settings and ordered by priority:

        plugins:
          Negotiate:
            languages:
              - en
              - de
              - fr

The result of this method can be propagated to template() in order to render a localized version of the file.

        get '/index' => sub {
                return template negotiate 'index';
        }; # renders index.de.tt or index.en.tt or index.fr.tt or index.tt 

Falls back to $template_name if negotiaten fails.

Hint: additional arguments applies to template():

        template negotiate index => { foo => 'bar' };
        # is the same as
        template(negotiate('index'), { foo => 'bar' });
