NAME

Catalyst::Example::InstantCRUD - A CRUD scaffolding for Catalyst.

VERSION

This document describes Catalyst::Example::InstantCRUD version 0.033

SYNOPSIS

    instantcrud.pl My::App -dsn='dbi:Pg:dbname=CE' -user=zby -password='pass'

The instantcrud.pl executable creates a skeleton CRUD application in current directory.

DESCRIPTION

The script will create CRUD interface (CReate, Update, Delete) with paging and sort for all tables defined in the accessed database. The Create and Update forms let you manipulate also on relations (even many to many).

I am waiting for suggestions what else basic functionality would be nice to have in the generated application.

When the code is generated you can run the application:

    $ My-App/script/my_app_server.pl
    You can connect to your server at http://zby.aster.net.pl:3000

To access the CRUD interface to the tables you need to add '/tablename' (in lowercase) to the address: http://localhost:3000/tablename (Note that if the table name has a underscore, that underscore should be deleted in the address so table foo_bar is available at http://localhost:3000/foobar, this is due to some conversions made by the underlying libraries).

The generated application will use DBIx::Class for model classes and Template::Toolkit for View.

CUSTOMISATION AND EXTENDING

The first place for customisations are the Template Toolkit templates and the CSS file. The CSS file used by the application is root/static/pagingandsort.css. The templates are generated in directories named after the controllers in the root directory.

The generated controller is a subclass of Catalyst::Example::Controller::InstantCRUD. You can use the standard OO technique of overriding the documented methods to customize and extend it. The form handling code is in the controller.

DEPENDENCIES See Makefile.PL

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

This is still experimental and it is a first new release after a long time and substantial refactoring so treat with caution.

The '0.04005' vesion of DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader does not assigne 'is_nullable' to any column when loading from some SQLite versions. In currently in applications generated out of SQLite databases all fields are marked as 'required'.

The main generator script (instantcrud.pl) is an ugly hack. First the Catalyst helpers assume where the executable is located so I had to fool them, second there is no API for creation of the main application module (My::App).

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-catalyst-example-instantcrud@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.
