Text::MicroMason::QuickTemplate - Alternate Syntax like Text::QuickTemplate


Instead of using this class directly, pass its name to be mixed in:

  use Text::MicroMason;
  my $mason = Text::MicroMason::Base->new( -QuickTemplate );

Use the standard compile and execute methods to parse and evalute templates:

  print $mason->compile( text=>$template )->( @%args );
  print $mason->execute( text=>$template, @args );

Or use Text::QuickTemplate's calling conventions:

    $template = Text::MicroMason->new( -HTMLTemplate, text=>'simple.tmpl' );
    print $template->fill( %arguments );

Text::QuickTemplate provides a syntax to embed values into a text template:

    Good {{timeofday}}, {{name}}!


This mixin class overrides several methods to allow MicroMason to emulate the template syntax and some of the other features of Text::QuickTemplate.

This class automatically includes the following other mixins: TemplateDir, HasParams, and StoreOne.

Compatibility with Text::QuickTemplate

This is not a drop-in replacement for Text::QuickTemplate, as the implementation is quite different, but it should be able to process most existing templates without major changes.

The following features of EmbPerl syntax are supported:

  • Curly bracketed tags with parameter names.

  • Array of parameters hashes.

  • Special $DONTSET variable.


The interface being emulated is described in Text::QuickTemplate.

For an overview of this templating framework, see Text::MicroMason.

This is a mixin class intended for use with Text::MicroMason::Base.
