DESCRIPTION

Mango::Catalyst::Controller::REST is a base Catalyst controller that automatically enables REST activity on actions in that controller using Catalyst::Action::REST.

By default, REST looks for data in the entity stash key, for forwards to the appropriate view based on the Content-Type header, or the view parameter.

In addition to the formats supported by Catalyst::Action;:REST, the following has been added:

    Content-Type:
        'text/plain'            => [qw/View Text/],
        'text/html'             => [qw/View HTML/],
        'application/xhtml+xml' => [qw/View XHTML/],
        'application/rss+xml'   => [qw/View RSS/],
        'application/atom+xml'  => [qw/View Atom/],

    view parameter:
        txt, text => [qw/View Text/],
        htm, html => [qw/View HTML/],
        xhtml     => [qw/View XHTML/],
        rss       => [qw/View RSS/],
        atom      => [qw/View Atom/],
        json      => JSON
        yml, yaml => YAML
