NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers - Tag helpers plugin

SYNOPSIS

  # Mojolicious
  $self->plugin('TagHelpers');

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'TagHelpers';

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers is a collection of HTML5 tag helpers for Mojolicious. This is a core plugin, that means it is always enabled and its code a good example for learning how to build new plugins.

Most form helpers can automatically pick up previous input values and will show them as default. You can also use "param" in Mojolicious::Plugin::DefaultHelpers to set them manually and let necessary attributes always be generated automatically.

  % param country => 'germany' unless param 'country';
  <%= radio_button country => 'germany' %> Germany
  <%= radio_button country => 'france'  %> France
  <%= radio_button country => 'uk'      %> UK
