NAME

Dancer2::Plugin::TemplateFlute - Dancer2 form handler for Template::Flute template engine

VERSION

Version 0.202

SYNOPSIS

Display template with checkout form:

    get '/checkout' => sub {
        my $form;

        $form = form( name => 'checkout', source => 'session' );
        
        template 'checkout', { form => $form };
    };

Retrieve form input from checkout form body:

    post '/checkout' => sub {
        my ($form, $values);

        $form = form( name => 'checkout', source => 'body' );
        $values = $form->values;
    };

Reset form after completion to prevent old data from showing up on new form:

    form('checkout')->reset;

If you have multiple forms then just pass the form token as an array reference:

    get '/cart' => sub {
        my ( $cart_form, $inquiry_form );

        # 'source' defaults to 'session' if not provided
        $cart_form    = form( name => 'cart' );

        # equivalent to form( name => 'inquiry' )
        $inquiry_form = form( 'inquiry' );
        
        template 'checkout', { form => [ $cart_form, $inquiry_form ] };
    };

KEYWORDS

form <$name|%params>

The following %params are recognised:

name

The name of the form. Defaults to 'main'.

values

    my $form = form( 'main', values => $params );

The form parameters as a Hash::MultiValue object or something that can be coerced into one.

Instead of "values" you can also use "source" to set initial values.

source

    my $form = form( name => 'main', source => 'body' );

The following values are valid:

body

This sets the form values to the request body parameters Dancer2::Core::Request::body_parameters.

query

This sets the form values to the request query parameters Dancer2::Core::Request::query_parameters.

parameters

This sets the form values to the combined body and request query parameters Dancer2::Core::Request::parameters.

session

Reads in values from the session. This is the default if no "source" or "parameters" are specified.

NOTE: if both "source" and "values" are supplied then values is ignored.

See Dancer2::Plugin::TemplateFlute::Form for details of other parameters that can be used.

DESCRIPTION

Dancer2::Plugin::TemplateFlute is used for forms with the Dancer2::Template::TemplateFlute templating engine.

Form fields, values and errors are stored into and loaded from the session key form.
