NAME

Dancer2::Core::Role::Template - Role for template engines

VERSION

version 1.1.0

DESCRIPTION

Any class that consumes this role will be able to be used as a template engine under Dancer2.

In order to implement this role, the consumer must implement the method "render". This method will receive three arguments:

$self
$template
$tokens

Any template receives the following tokens, by default:

  • "perl_version"

    Current version of perl, effectively $^V.

  • "dancer_version"

    Current version of Dancer2, effectively "Dancer2->VERSION".

  • "settings"

    A hash of the application configuration.

  • "request"

    The current request object.

  • "params"

    A hash reference of all the parameters.

    Currently the equivalent of "$request->params".

  • "vars"

    The list of request variables, which is what you would get if you called the "vars" keyword.

  • "session"

    The current session data, if a session exists.
