NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::PetalTinyRenderer - Petal::Tiny renderer plugin

SYNOPSIS

  # Mojolicious
  $self->plugin('PetalTinyRenderer');

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'PetalTinyRenderer';

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::PetalTinyRenderer is a renderer for templates written for Petal::Tiny, which is a Perl implementation of the Template Attribute Language (TAL).

OPTIONS

Mojolicious::Plugin::PetalTinyRenderer supports the following option.

name

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin PetalTinyRenderer => {name => 'petal'};

Handler name, defaults to tal.

encoding

Encoding of the template-files as supplied to open, defaults to :encoding(UTF-8).

STASH

The stash is directly available in the templates, see the use of foo in the example.

h

Helpers are available via the h entry in the stash.

 <a tal:attributes="href h/url_for --index" href="/">go back to index</a>

c

The current controller instance can be accessed as c.

 I see you are requesting a document from 
 <span tal:replace="c/req/headers/host">Lorem ipsum</span>.

USEFUL PATTERNS

Call helper-function without generating html (-- prefixes a literal string):

 <span tal:condition="true:h/layout --default" tal:omit-tag="" />

Use a temporary variable to hold dynamically generated string for helper function:

 <span tal:define="mytitle h/localization --login"
       tal:condition="true:h/title mytitle"
       tal:omit-tag="" />

Insert styled paragraph with error-message, if any (the structure keyword means don't escape returned html):

 <p style="color:red" tal:condition="true:message" tal:content="structure message">
   Error message
 </p>

Include other action/template:

 <span tal:replace="structure h/include --example/welcome" />

You can loop over Mojo::Collections:

 <li tal:repeat="key some_mojo_collection" tal:content="key" />

See Petal::Tiny for more.

Author's observation: If you need to write very complex TAL-constructs, maybe you should reconsider what belongs in the controller and what belongs in the template. TAL seems to be very good at exposing this anti-pattern.

EXAMPLE

 use Mojolicious::Lite;

 plugin 'PetalTinyRenderer';

 get '/' => sub {
     my $self = shift;
     $self->stash( foo => Mojo::Collection->new(1,2,3) );
     $self->render('index');
 };

 app->start;
