Mojolicious::Plugin::RenderFile - "render_file" helper for Mojolicious
# Mojolicious $self->plugin('RenderFile'); # Mojolicious::Lite plugin 'RenderFile'; # In controller $self->render_file('filepath' => '/tmp/files/file.pdf'); # file name will be "file.pdf" # Provide any file name $self->render_file('filepath' => '/tmp/files/file.pdf', 'filename' => 'report.pdf'); # Render data from memory as file $self->render_file('data' => 'some data here', 'filename' => 'report.pdf'); # Open file in browser(do not show save dialog) $self->render_file( 'filepath' => '/tmp/files/file.pdf', 'format' => 'pdf', # will change Content-Type "application/x-download" to "application/pdf" 'content_disposition' => 'inline', # will change Content-Disposition from "attachment" to "inline" 'cleanup' => 1, # delete file after completed );
$self->render_file(filepath => '/tmp/files/file.pdf', 'filename' => 'report.pdf' );
With this helper you can easily provide files for download. By default "Content-Type" header is "application/x-download" and "content_disposition" option value is "attachment". Therefore, a browser will ask where to save file. You can provide "format" option to change "Content-Type" header.
Path on the filesystem to the file. You must always pass "filepath" or "data" option
Binary content which will be transferred to browser. You must always pass "filepath" or "data" option
Browser will use this name for saving the file
The "Content-Type" header is based on the MIME type mapping of the "format" option value. These mappings can be easily extended or changed with "types" in Mojolicious.
By default "Content-Type" header is "application/x-download"
Tells browser how to present the file.
"attachment" (default) - is for dowloading
"inline" - is for showing file inline
Indicates if the file should be deleted when rendering is complete
This plugin respects HTTP Range headers.
