NAME

Plack::Middleware::DetectMobileBrowsers - Automatically set a flag in the environment if a mobile client is detected

VERSION

version 0.05

SYNOPSIS

  use Plack::Builder;

  my $app = sub { ... } # as usual

  builder {
      enable 'DetectMobileBrowsers';
          # or: enable 'DetectMobileBrowsers', env_key => 'mobileDevice';
          # or: enable 'DetectMobileBrowsers', tablets_as_mobile => 1;
      $app;
  };

  # ... and later ...
  
  if ( $yourApp->theEnv->{'mobile_client'} ) {
      # ... do something ...
  }

DESCRIPTION

This Plack middleware uses the regular expression provided by http://detectmobilebrowsers.com/ to analyse the User-Agent HTTP header and to set an environment flag to either a true or false value depending on the detection of a mobile client device.

The default name of the flag in the environment is mobile_client, but this can be customized by setting the env_key option when enabling this middleware.

It might make sense to use psgix.mobile_client by default instead, but the PSGI spec states that the "'psgix.' prefix is reserved for officially blessed extensions" - which does not apply to this module. You may, however, set the key to psgix.mobile_client yourself by using the env_key option mentioned before.

REGEX VERSION

2014-08-01

CONFIGURATION

You may specify the following option when enabling the middleware:

env_key

Set the name of the entry in the environment hash.

tablets_as_mobile

Determines if tablets are considered to be mobile devices. By default they are not; set this param to a true value to change the default behaviour.
