NAME

Lemonldap::NG::Common::PSGI::Router - Base library for REST APIs of Lemonldap::NG.

SYNOPSIS

  package My::PSGI;
  
  use base Lemonldap::NG::Common::PSGI::Router;
  
  sub init {
    my ($self,$args) = @_;
    # Will be called 1 time during startup
    
    # Declare REST routes (could be HTML templates or methods)
    $self->addRoute ( 'index.html', undef, ['GET'] )
         ->addRoute ( books => { ':book' => 'booksMethod' }, ['GET', 'POST'] )
         ->addRoute ( properties => { '*' => 'propertiesMethod' }, ['GET', 'POST', 'PUT', 'DELETE']);
  
    # Default route (ie: PATH_INFO == '/')
    $self->defaultRoute('index.html');
  
    # See Lemonldap::NG::Common::PSGI for other options
  
    # Return a boolean. If false, then error message has to be stored in
    # $self->error
    return 1;
  }
  
  sub booksMethod {
    my ( $self, $req, @otherPathInfo ) = @_;
    my $book = $req->params('book');
    my $method = $req->method;
    ...
    $self->sendJSONresponse(...);
  }
  
  sub propertiesMethod {
    my ( $self, $property, @otherPathInfo ) = @_;
    my $method = $req->method;
    ...
    $self->sendJSONresponse(...);
  }

This package could then be called as a CGI, using FastCGI,...

  #!/usr/bin/env perl
  
  use My::PSGI;
  use Plack::Handler::FCGI; # or Plack::Handler::CGI

  Plack::Handler::FCGI->new->run( My::PSGI->run() );

DESCRIPTION

This package provides base class for Lemonldap::NG REST API but could be used regardless.

METHODS

See Lemonldap::NG::Common::PSGI for logging methods, content sending,...

Initialization methods

addRoute ( $word, $dest, $methods )

Declare a REST route. Arguments:

$word:

the first word of /path/info.

$dest:

string, sub ref or hash ref (see "Route types" below)

$methods:

array ref containing the methods concerned by this route.

Route types

As seen in "SYNOPSIS", you can declare routes with variable component. $dest can be:

a word:

the name of the method to call

undef:

$word is used as $dest

a ref to code:

an anonymous subroutin to call

a hash ref:

it's a recursive call to `{ $word => $dest }`

an array ref:

in this case each element of the array will be considered as `{ $element => $element }`. So each element must be a word that makes a correspondence between a path_info word and a subroutine

Some special $word:

':name':

the word in path_info will be stored in GET parameters

'*':

the subroutine will be called with the word of path_info as second argument (after $req)

'something.html':

if $word finishes with '.html', then sendHtml() will be called with 'something.tpl' as template name. In this case, $dest is not used.

Examples:

to manage http://.../books/127 with book() where 127 is the book number, use:
  $self->addRoute( books => { ':bookId' => 'book' }, ['GET'] );

booId parameter will be stored in $req->params('bookId');

to manage http://.../books/127/pages/5 with page(), use:
  $self->addRoute( books => { ':bookId' => { pages => { ':pageId' => 'page' } } }, ['GET'] );
to manage simultaneously the 2 previous examples
  $self->addRoute( books => { ':bookId' => { pages => { ':pageId' => 'page' } } }, ['GET'] )
       ->addRoute( books => { ':bookId' => { '*' => 'book' } }, ['GET'] );

Note that book() will be called for any path_info containing /books/<$bookid>/<$other> except if $other == 'pages'.

to manage /properties/p1, /properties/p2 with p1() and p2(), use:
  $self->addRoute( properties => [ 'p1', 'p2' ] );

defaultRoute($path)

This method defined which path_info to use if path_info is '/' or empty.
