DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::ReplyTime is a Mojolicious plugin that adds a reply helper named "time" to the Mojolicious controller object. It will respond to a JSON request with '{"time":"[scalar localtime]"}' and any other request with a plain text response of just the localtime as a scalar.

Also included is a get route called /replytime that will call the reply->time helper.

Also included is a replytime command line utility which will launch a simple Mojolicious daemon that will respond to any request with the local time. The purpose for this is simply testing: rather than a static response in which you are unsure if the response is cached or not, reply time also responds with something fresh.

METHODS

Mojolicious::Plugin::ReplyTime inherits all methods from Mojolicious::Plugin and implements the following new ones.

  $plugin->register(Mojolicious->new);
