NAME

Templer::Site - An interface to a templer site.

SYNOPSIS

    use strict;
    use warnings;

    use Templer::Site;

    # Create the helper.
    my $site   = Templer::Site->new( suffix => ".skx" );

    # Get the pages/assets.
    my @pages  = $site->pages();
    my @assets = $site->assets();

DESCRIPTION

This class encapsulates a site. A site is comprised of "pages" and "assets".

Pages

Pages are things which are template expanded. These are represented by instances of the Templer::Site::Page class.

Assets

Assets are files that are merely copied from the input directory to the output path. If we're running in "in-place" mode then they are ignored.

Assets are represented by instances of the Templer::Site::Assets class.

This class contains helpers for finding and returning arrays of both such objects, and the code necessary to work with them and build a site.

METHODS

new

Constructor, this should be given a hash of arguments for example:

input

The input directory to process.

output

The output directory to write to.

suffix

The suffixe that will discover "Pages", for example '.skx', or '.tmplr'.

init

Ensure that the input directory exists.

Create the output directory if we're not running in-place.

Create array of destination files.

pages

A site comprises of a collection of pages and a collection of static resources which aren't touched/modified - these are "assets".

Return a Templer::Site::Page object for each page we've found.

NOTE We don't process pages with a "." prefix, i.e. dotfiles.

assets

A site comprises of a collection of pages and a collection of static resources which aren't touched/modified - these are "assets".

Return a Templer::Site::Asset object for each asset we find.

NOTE We include files which have a "." prefix here - to correctly copy files such as ".htpasswd", ".htaccess", etc.

_findFiles

Internal method to find files beneath the given directory and return a new object for each one.

We assume that the object constructor receives a hash as its sole argument with the key "file" containing the file path.

build

Build the site.

This is the method which does all the page-expansion, site-generation, etc.

The return value is the count of pages built.

copyAssets

Copy all assets from the input directory to the output directory.

This method will use tar to do so semi-efficiently.

sync

Delete all files from output directory which do not come from the input directory.

set

Store/update a key/value pair in our internal store.

This allows the values passed in the constructor to be updated/added to.

fields

Get all known key + value pairs from our store.

This is called to get all global variables for template interpolation as part of the build. (The global variables and the per-page variables are each fetched and expanded via plugins prior to getting sent to the HTML::Template object.).

get

Get a single value from our store of variables.
