Templer::Plugin::Redis - A plugin to retrieve values from Redis


The following is a good example use of this plugin

  title: About my site
  count: redis_get( "total_count" )
  <p>There are <!-- tmpl_var name='count' --> ponies.</p>


This plugin allows template variables to be values retrieved from a redis store.

It is assumed that redis will be running on the localhost, if it is not you may set the environmental variable REDIS_SERVER to point to your IP:port pair.

Constructor. No arguments are required/supported.


This is the method which is called by the Templer::Plugin::Factory to expand the variables contained in a Templer::Site::Page object.

Variables are written in the file in the form "key: value", and are internally stored within the Page object as a hash.

This method iterates over each key & value and updates any that seem to refer to redis-fetches.
