NAME

Template::Plugin::HTML - Plugin to create HTML elements

SYNOPSIS

    [% USE HTML %]

    [% HTML.escape("if (a < b && c > d) ..." %]

    [% HTML.element(table => { border => 1, cellpadding => 2 }) %]

    [% HTML.attributes(border => 1, cellpadding => 2) %]

DESCRIPTION

The HTML plugin is very new and very basic, implementing a few useful methods for generating HTML. It is likely to be extended in the future or integrated with a larger project to generate HTML elements in a generic way (as discussed recently on the mod_perl mailing list).

METHODS

escape(text)

Returns the source text with any HTML reserved characters such as <, >, etc., correctly esacped to their entity equivalents.

attributes(hash)

Returns the elements of the hash array passed by reference correctly formatted (e.g. values quoted and correctly escaped) as attributes for an HTML element.

element(type, attributes)

Generates an HTML element of the specified type and with the attributes provided as an optional hash array reference as the second argument or as named arguments.

    [% HTML.element(table => { border => 1, cellpadding => 2 }) %]
    [% HTML.element('table', border=1, cellpadding=2) %]
    [% HTML.element(table => attribs) %]
