NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers - Tag helpers plugin

SYNOPSIS

  # Mojolicious
  $app->plugin('TagHelpers');

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'TagHelpers';

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers is a collection of HTML tag helpers for Mojolicious, based on the HTML Living Standard.

Most form helpers can automatically pick up previous input values and will show them as default. You can also use "param" in Mojolicious::Plugin::DefaultHelpers to set them manually and let necessary attributes always be generated automatically.

  % param country => 'germany' unless param 'country';
  <%= radio_button country => 'germany' %> Germany
  <%= radio_button country => 'france'  %> France
  <%= radio_button country => 'uk'      %> UK

For fields that failed validation with "validation" in Mojolicious::Controller the field-with-error class will be automatically added through "tag_with_error", to make styling with CSS easier.

  <input class="field-with-error" name="age" type="text" value="250">

This is a core plugin, that means it is always enabled and its code a good example for learning how to build new plugins, you're welcome to fork it.

See "PLUGINS" in Mojolicious::Plugins for a list of plugins that are available by default.

Very useful for reuse in more specific tag helpers.

  my $output = $c->tag('meta');
  my $output = $c->tag('meta', charset => 'UTF-8');
  my $output = $c->tag(div => '<p>This will be escaped</p>');
