SYNOPSIS

  use Text::Handlebars;

          fullName => sub {
              my ($context, $person) = @_;
              return $person->{firstName}
                   . ' '
                   . $person->{lastName};
          },
      },
  );

  my $vars = {
      author   => { firstName => 'Alan', lastName => 'Johnson' },
      body     => "I Love Handlebars",
      comments => [{
          author => { firstName => 'Yehuda', lastName => 'Katz' },
          body   => "Me too!",
      }],
  };

  say $handlebars->render_string(<<'TEMPLATE', $vars);
  <div class="post">
    <h1>By {{fullName author}}</h1>
    <div class="body">{{body}}</div>

    <h1>Comments</h1>

    {{#each comments}}
    <h2>By {{fullName author}}</h2>

DESCRIPTION

This module subclasses Text::Xslate to provide a parser for Handlebars templates. In most ways, this module functions identically to Text::Xslate, except that it parses Handlebars templates instead.

Text::Handlebars accepts an additional constructor parameter of helpers to define Handlebars-style helper functions. Standard helpers are identical to functions defined with the function parameter, except that they receive the current context implicitly as the first parameter (since perl doesn't have an implicit this parameter). Block helpers also receive the context as the first parameter, and they also receive the options parameter as a hashref. As an example:

  sub {
      my ($context, $items, $options) = @_;

      my $out = "<ul>";

      for my $item (@$items) {
          $out .= "<li>" . $options->{fn}->($item) . "</li>";
      }

      return $out . "</ul>\n";
  },

defines a simple block helper to generate a <ul> list.

Text::Handlebars also overrides render and render_string to allow using any type of data (not just hashrefs) as a context (so rendering a template consisting of only {{.}} works properly).

BUGS/CAVEATS

  • The auto-indenting behavior for partials is not yet implemented, due to limitations in Text::Xslate.

  • The data parameter for @foo variables when calling $options->{fn}->() is not supported, because I don't understand its purpose. If someone wants this functionality, feel free to let me know, and tell me why.

Please report any bugs to GitHub Issues at https://github.com/doy/text-handlebars/issues.
