NAME

Text::Caml - Mustache template engine

SYNOPSIS

    my $view = Text::Caml->new;

    my $output = $view->render_file('template', {title => 'Hello', body => 'there!'});

    # template
    <html>
        <head>
            <title>{{title}}</title>
        </head>
        <body>
            {{body}}
        </body>
    </html>

    $output = $view->render('{{hello}}', {hello => 'hi'});

DESCRIPTION

Text::Caml is a Mustache-like (http://mustache.github.com/) template engine. That means it tends to have no logic in template files.

Syntax

Context

Context is the data passed to the template. Context can change during template rendering and be specific in various cases.

Variables

Variables are inserted using {{foo}} syntax. If a variable is not defined or empty it is simply ignored.

    Hello {{user}}!

By default every variable is escaped when parsed. This can be omitted using & flag.

    # user is '1 > 2'
    Hello {{user}}! => Hello 1 &gt; 2!

    Hello {{&user}}! => Hello 1 > 2!

Using a . syntax it is possible to access deep hash structures.

    # user => {name => 'Larry'}
    {{user.name}}

    Larry

Comments

Comments are ignored. They can be multiline too.

  foo{{! Comment}}bar

  foo{{!
  Comment
  }}bar

Sections

Sections are like iterators that iterate over your data. Depending on a variable type different iterators are created.

  • Boolean, have_comments is defined, not zero and not empty.

        # have_comments => 1
        {{#have_comments}}
        We have comments!
        {{/have_comments}}
    
        We have comments!
  • Array, list is a non-empty array reference. Special variable {{.}} is created to point to the current element.

        # list => [1, 2, 3]
        {{#list}}{{.}}{{/list}}
    
        123
  • Hash, hash is a non-empty hash reference. Context is swithed to the elements.

        # hash => {one => 1, two => 2, three => 3}
        {{#hash}}
        {{one}}{{two}}{{three}}
        {{/hash}}
    
        123
  • Lambda, lambda is an anonymous subroutine, that's called with three arguments: current object instance, template and the context. This can be used for subrendering, helpers etc.

        wrapped => sub {
            my $self = shift;
            my $text = shift;
    
            return '<b>' . $self->render($text, @_) . '</b>';
        };
    
        {{#wrapped}}
        {{name}} is awesome.
        {{/wrapped}}
    
        <b>Willy is awesome.</b>

Inverted sections

Inverted sections are run in those situations when normal sections don't. When boolean value is false, array is empty etc.

    # repo => []
    {{#repo}}
      <b>{{name}}</b>
    {{/repo}}
    {{^repo}}
      No repos :(
    {{/repo}}

    No repos :(

Partials

Partials are like inludes in other templates engines. They are run with the current context and can be recursive.

    {{#articles}}
    {{>article_summary}}
    {{/articles}}
