NAME

Yancy::Controller::Yancy::API - An OpenAPI REST controller for the Yancy editor

VERSION

version 1.029

DESCRIPTION

DEPRECATED: This module has been merged into the Yancy::Controller::Yancy class and the editor now uses that class by default.

This module contains the routes that Yancy uses to work with the backend data. This API is used by the Yancy editor.

METHODS

list

List the items in a schema. The schema name should be in the stash key schema.

Each returned item will be filtered by filters conforming with "yancy.filter.add" in Mojolicious::Plugin::Yancy that are passed in the array-ref in stash key filters_out.

$limit, $offset, and $order_by may be provided as query parameters.

get

Get a single item from a schema. The schema should be in the stash key schema.

The item's ID field-name is in the stash key id_field. The ID itself is extracted from the OpenAPI input, under a parameter of that name.

The return value is filtered like each result is in "list_items".

set

Create or update an item in a schema. The schema should be in the stash key schema.

The item to be updated is determined as with "get", if any. The new item is extracted from the OpenAPI input, under parameter name newItem, and must be a hash/JSON "object". It will be filtered by filters conforming with "yancy.filter.add" in Mojolicious::Plugin::Yancy that are passed in the array-ref in stash key filters, after the schema and property filters have been applied.

The return value is filtered like each result is in "list".

delete

Delete an item from a schema. The schema name should be in the stash key schema.

The item to be deleted is determined as with "get".

SUBCLASSING

To change how the API provides access to the data in your database, you can create a custom controller. To do so, you should extend Yancy::Controller::Yancy and override the desired methods to provide the desired functionality.

    package MyApp::Controller::CustomYancyAPI;
    use Mojo::Base 'Yancy::Controller::Yancy';
    sub list {
        my ( $c ) = @_;
        return unless $c->openapi->valid_input;
        my $items = $c->yancy->backend->list( $c->stash( 'schema' ) );
        return $c->render(
            status => 200,
            openapi => $items,
        );
    }

    package main;
    use Mojolicious::Lite;
    push @{ app->routes->namespaces }, 'MyApp::Controller';
    plugin Yancy => {
        editor => {
            default_controller => 'CustomYancyAPI',
        },
    };

For an example, you could extend this class to add authorization based on your own requirements.
