NAME

Mad::Mapper - Map Perl objects to PostgreSQL, MySQL or SQLite data

VERSION

0.09

DESCRIPTION

Mad::Mapper is a base class for objects that should be stored in a persistent SQL database. Currently the supported backends are Mojo::Pg Mojo::mysql and Mojo::SQLite. These backends need to be installed separately.

  $ cpanm Mad::Mapper
  $ cpanm Mojo::Pg # Mad::Mapper now supports postgres!

THIS MODULE IS EXPERIMENTAL. It is in use in production though, so big changes will not be made without extreme consideration.

SYNOPSIS

  package MyApp::Model::User;
  use Mad::Mapper -base;

  # Class attributes
  col id => undef;
  col email => '';

See also Mad::Mapper::Guides::Tutorial for more details and Mad::Mapper::Guides::Custom if you want more control.

RELATIONSHIPS

See Mad::Mapper::Guides::HasMany for example "has many" relationship.

TODO: belongs_to() and maybe has_one().

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

col

Used to define a column. Follow the same rules as "has".

has

  has name => "Bruce";
  has [qw(name email)];
  has pet => sub { Cat->new };

Same as "has" in Mojo::Base.

pk

Used to define a primary key. Follow the same rules as "has".

The primary key is used by default in "load" and "update" to update the correct row. If omitted, the first "col" will act as primary key.

Note that "pk" is not returned by "columns".

table

Used to define a table name. The default is to decamelize the last part of the class name and add "s" at the end, unless it already has "s" at the end. Examples:

  .-------------------------------------.
  | Class name            | table       |
  |-----------------------|-------------|
  | App::Model::User      | users       |
  | App::Model::Users     | users       |
  | App::Model::Group     | groups      |
  | App::Model::UserAgent | user_agents |
  '-------------------------------------'

ATTRIBUTES

db

  $db = $self->db;
  $self->db($db_obj);

Need to hold either a Mojo::Pg::Database or Mojo::mysql::Database object.

in_storage

  $bool = $self->in_storage;
  $self = $self->in_storage($bool);

METHODS

expand_sql

  ($sql, @args) = $self->expand_sql($sql, @args);

Used to expand a given $sql statement with variables defined by helpers.

  • %t

    Will be replaced by "table". Example: "SELECT * FROM %t" becomes "SELECT * FROM users".

  • %c

    Will be replaced by "columns". Example: "name,email".

  • %c=

    Will be replaced by "columns" assignment. Example: "name=?,email=?"

  • %c?

    Will be replaced by "columns" placeholders. Example: "?,?,?"

  • %pc

    Include "pk" in list of columns. Example: "id,name,email".

  • \%c

    Becomes a literal "%c".

It is also possible to define aliases for "%t", "%c", "%c=" and "%pc". Example:

  %t.x = some_table as x
  %c.x = x.col1

expand_sst

DEPRECATED in favor of "expand_sql".

columns

  @str = $self->columns;

Returns a list of columns, defined by "col".

delete

  $self = $self->delete;
  $self = $self->delete(sub { my ($self, $err) = @_, ... });

Will delete the object from database if "in_storage".

fresh

  $self = $self->fresh;

Will mark the next relationship accessor to fetch new data from database, instead of using the cached data on $self.

load

  $self = $self->load;
  $self = $class->load(sub { my ($self, $err) = @_; });

Used to fetch data from storage and update the object attributes.

save

  $self = $self->save;
  $self = $self->save(sub { my ($self, $err) = @_, ... });

Will update the object in database if "in_storage" or insert it if not.

import

Will set up the caller class with Mad::Mapper functionality if "-base" is given as argument. See "SYNOPSIS" for example.
