NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

 # Mojolicious
 $app->plugin('TemplateToolkit');
 $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
 $app->renderer->default_handler('tt2');
 
 # Render without setting as default handler
 $c->render(template => 'bar', handler => 'tt2');

DESCRIPTION

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.

 $app->renderer->paths(['/path/to/templates']);
 push @{$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 or a more efficient proxy object available as h. See Mojolicious::Plugin::DefaultHelpers and Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers for a list of all built-in helpers.

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)]);
