NAME

Catalyst::TraitFor::Controller::DoesExtPaging - Paginate DBIx::Class::ResultSets for ExtJS consumption

VERSION

version 1.000001

SYNOPSIS

  package MyApp::Controller;

  use Moose;
  BEGIN { extends 'Catalyst::Controller' }

  # a single with would be better, but we can't do that
  # see: http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=46347
  with 'Catalyst::TraitFor::Controller::DBIC::DoesPaging';
  with 'Catalyst::TraitFor::Controller::DoesExtPaging';

  sub people :Local {
     # ...
     my $json = $self->ext_paginate($paginated_rs);
     # ...
  }

  sub people_lite :Local {
     # ...
     my $json = $self->ext_paginate($paginated_rs, sub {
        my $person = shift;
        return {
           first_name => $person->first_name,
           last_name => $person->last_name,
        }
     });
     # ...
  }

  # this will call the 'foo' method on each person and put the returned
  # value into the datastructure
  sub people_more_different :Local {
     # ...
     my $json = $self->ext_paginate($paginated_rs, 'foo');
     # ...
  }

  sub programmers_do_it_by_hand :Local {
     # ...
     my $data = [qw{foo bar baz}];
     my $total = 10;
     my $json = $self->ext_parcel($data, $total);
     # ...
  }

  # defaults total to amount of items passed in
  sub some_programmers_do_it_by_hand_partially :Local {
     # ...
     my $data = [qw{foo bar baz}];
     my $json = $self->ext_parcel($data);
     # ...
  }

DESCRIPTION

This module is mostly for sending DBIx::Class paginated data to ExtJS based javascript code.

METHODS

ext_paginate

  my $resultset = $self->model('DB::Foo');
  my $results   = $self->paginate($resultset);
  my $json      = $self->ext_paginate($resultset);
  my $json_str  = to_json($json);

Description

Returns a structure like the following from the ResultSet:

  {
     data  => \@results,
     total => $count_before_pagination
  }

Valid arguments are:

  rs      - paginated ResultSet to get the data from
  coderef - any valid scalar that can be called on the result object

ext_parcel

  my $items    = [qw{foo bar baz}];
  my $total    = 7;
  my $json     = $self->ext_parcel($data, $total);
  my $json_str = to_json($json);

Description

Returns a structure like the following:

  {
     data  => [@{$items}],
     total => $total || scalar @{$items}
  }

Valid arguments are:

  list  - a list of anything you want to be in the data structure
  total - whatever you want to say the total is.  Defaults to size of
          the list passed in.

CONFIG VARIABLES

root

Sets the name of the root for the data structure. Defaults to data.

total_property

Sets the name for the total property for the data structure. Defaults to total.
