Mojolicious::Plugin::TemplateToolkit - Template Toolkit renderer plugin for Mojolicious


 # Mojolicious
 $app->plugin(TemplateToolkit => {name => 'foo'});
 $app->plugin(TemplateToolkit => {template => {INTERPOLATE => 1}});
 # Mojolicious::Lite
 plugin 'TemplateToolkit';
 plugin TemplateToolkit => {name => 'foo'};
 plugin TemplateToolkit => {template => {INTERPOLATE => 1}});
 # Set as default handler
 # Render without setting as default handler
 $c->render(template => 'bar', handler => 'tt2');


Mojolicious::Plugin::TemplateToolkit is a renderer for tt2 or Template Toolkit templates. See Template and Template::Manual for details on the Template Toolkit format, and Mojolicious::Guides::Rendering for general information on rendering in Mojolicious.

Along with template files, inline and data section templates can be rendered in the standard Mojolicious fashion. Template files and data sections will be retrieved using Mojolicious::Renderer via Template::Provider::Mojo for both direct rendering and directives such as INCLUDE. This means that instead of specifying INCLUDE_PATH, you should set "paths" in Mojolicious::Renderer to the appropriate paths.

 push @{$app->renderer->paths}, '/path/to/more/templates';

Mojolicious stash values will be exposed directly as variables in the templates, and the current controller object will be available as c or self, similar to Mojolicious::Plugin::EPRenderer.

Helper methods can be called on the controller object as normal, as well as on a proxy object available as h. The proxy object was previously needed for efficiency as the controller object used AUTOLOAD to call helper methods, but since Mojolicious 8.04 the controller object uses a more efficient mechanism and the proxy object is no longer needed. See Mojolicious::Plugin::DefaultHelpers and Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers for a list of all built-in helper methods.

Accessing helper methods directly as variables, rather than via the controller or proxy object, is deprecated and may be removed in a future release.

 $c->stash(description => 'template engine');
 $c->stash(engines => [qw(Template::Toolkit Text::Template)]);
 [% FOREACH engine IN engines %]
   [% engine %] is a [% description %].
 [% END %]
 [% c.link_to('Template Toolkit', '') %]
 [% c.param('foo') %]


Mojolicious::Plugin::TemplateToolkit supports the following options.


 # Mojolicious::Lite
 plugin TemplateToolkit => {name => 'foo'};

Handler name, defaults to tt2.


 # Mojolicious::Lite
 plugin TemplateToolkit => {template => {INTERPOLATE => 1}};

Configuration values passed to Template object used to render templates. Note that Template::Provider::Mojo will use "paths" in Mojolicious::Renderer to find templates, not INCLUDE_PATH specified here.


Mojolicious::Plugin::TemplateToolkit inherits all methods from Mojolicious::Plugin and implements the following new ones.


 $plugin->register(Mojolicious->new, {name => 'foo'});

Register renderer in Mojolicious application.
