    require_root    => 1,   # request must be for /
    server          => $server,
    request         => $plack_request,
    search_path     => $search_path,

Dezi::Server::About allows a Dezi::Server to introspect, and returns an object describing the server.

The About response is what you get, in JSON format, when you issue a GET request to the Dezi root path. It allows client applications to find out details about the server, including what methods are available and which URI paths should be used for searching and indexing.

This class is used internally by Dezi::Server.


new( %args )

See the SYNOPSIS for a description of %args.

Returns an array ref suitable for use as a Plack::Response.
