DESCRIPTION

This module is handy if you want to validate POST/GET parameters using Moose classes.

SYNOPSIS

    package MyApp;
    use Mojo::Base 'Mojolicious';
    sub startup {
        my $self = shift;

        $self->plugin('Mojolicious::Plugin::ValidateMoose');

        # ...
    }

    package MyApp::Root;
    use Mojo::Base 'Mojolicious::Controller';
    sub foo {
        my $self = shift;

        if($self->req->method eq 'POST') {
            if(my $obj = $self->validate_moose('My::Moose::Class')) {
                # input validate, and $obj created from My::Moose::Class
                # with the params set as attributes
            }
        }
    }

HELPERS

validate_moose

    $obj = $controller->validate_moose($moose_class, \%args);
    $obj = $controller->validate_moose($moose_obj, \%args);

Will either update an existing or create a new Moose object, if all the attributes gets validated. If any of the attributes is not updated with the right value from param(), this method will set invalid_form_elements in the stash to a datastructure like this:

    {
        $param_name_a => 'required', # fixed
        $param_name_b => 'moose exception message', # custom
    }

Example moose exception message:

    Validation failed for 'Int' with value "asd"

The method will return empty list if it fail to validate the input.

METHODS

register

Will register the methods undef "HELPERS" as Mojolicious helpers.
