NAME

MasonX::ProcessDir - Process a directory of Mason 2 templates

VERSION

version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

    use MasonX::ProcessDir;

    # Generate result files in the same directory as the templates
    #
    my $pd = MasonX::ProcessDir->new(
        dir => '/path/to/dir'
    );
    $pd->process_dir();

    # Generate result files in a separate directory
    #
    my $pd = MasonX::ProcessDir->new(
        source_dir => '/path/to/source/dir',
        dest_dir   => '/path/to/dest/dir'
    );
    $pd->process_dir();

DESCRIPTION

Recursively processes a directory of Mason 2 templates, generating a set of result files in the same directory or in a parallel directory.

Every file with suffix ".mc" will be processed, and the results placed in a file of the same name without the suffix. ".mi", autobase and dhandler files will be used by Mason when processing the templates but will not generate files themselves.

For example, if the source directory contains

   Base.mc
   httpd.conf.mc
   proxy.conf.mc
   etc/crontab.mc
   blah.mi
   somefile.txt

and we run

    my $pd = MasonX::ProcessDir->new(
        source_dir => '/path/to/source/dir',
        dest_dir   => '/path/to/dest/dir'
    );
    $pd->process_dir();

then afterwards the destination directory will contain files

    httpd.conf
    proxy.conf
    etc/crontab
    somefile.txt

where foo and bar are the results of processing foo.mc and bar.mc through Mason. Base.mc and blah.mi may be used during Mason processing but won't generate result files themselves.

This class is a convenience extension of Any::Template::ProcessDir.

CONSTRUCTOR

Specifying directory/directories

  • If you want to generate the result files in the same directory as the templates, just specify dir.

        my $pd = MasonX::ProcessDir->new(
            dir => '/path/to/dir',
            ...
        );
  • If you want to generate the result files in a separate directory from the templates, specify source_dir and dest_dir.

        my $pd = MasonX::ProcessDir->new(
            source_dir => '/path/to/source/dir',
            source_dir => '/path/to/dest/dir',
            ...
        );

Mason options

mason_options

An optional hash of options to the Mason interpreter. For example, the default Mason data directory will be ".mason" under the source directory, but you can override this:

    mason_options => { data_dir => '/path/to/data/dir' }

Options inherited from Any::Template::ProcessDir

See Any::Template::ProcessDir for other options, such as

    dir_create_mode
    file_create_mode
    readme_filename
