NAME

Dancer::Serializer - serializer wrapper for Dancer

VERSION

version 1.3134

DESCRIPTION

This module is the wrapper that provides support for different serializers.

USAGE

Configuration

The serializer configuration variable tells Dancer which serializer to use to deserialize request and serialize response.

You change it either in your config.yml file:

    serializer: "YAML"

Or in the application code:

    # setting JSON as the default serializer
    set serializer => 'JSON';

In your routes you can access parameters just like any route.

When in a route you return a Perl data structure, it will be serialized automatically to the respective serialized engine (for instance, JSON).

For PUT and POST methods you can access the request->body as a string, and you can unserialize it, if you really need to. If your content type is recognized by the serializer, request->body will be unserialized automatically, and it will be available as a standard parameter.

For instance, if you call

 curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"id":"bar"}' /foo

your foo route can do something like:

  post "/foo" => {
     my $id = param('id'); # gets "bar"
     #  ...
  }
