Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp

NAME

Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp − template based module starter for CGI apps.

SYNOPSIS

    use Module::Starter qw(
        Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp
    );
    Module::Starter−>create_distro(%args);

ABSTRACT

This is a plugin for Module::Starter that builds you a skeleton CGI::Application module with all the extra files needed to package it for CPAN. You can customize the output using HTML::Template.

VERSION

This document describes version 0.44

DESCRIPTION

This module subclasses Module::Starter::Simple and includes functionality similar to Module::Starter::Plugin::Template. This document only describes the methods which are overridden from those modules or are new.

Only developers looking to extend this module need to read this. If you just want to use Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp, read the docs for cgiapp-starter or titanium-starter instead.

METHODS

new ( %args )
This method calls the "new" supermethod from Module::Starter::Plugin::Simple and then initializes the template store. (See "templates".)

create_distro ( %args )
This method works as advertised in Module::Starter.

create_LICENSE( )
This method creates a "LICENSE" file in the distribution’s directory which can hold the distribution’s license terms.

create_MANIFEST_SKIP( )
This method creates a "MANIFEST.SKIP" file in the distribution’s directory so that unneeded files can be skipped from inclusion in the distribution.

create_modules( @modules )
This method will create a starter module file for each module named in @modules. It is only subclassed from Module::Starter::Simple here so we can change the rtname tmpl_var to be the distro name instead of the module name.

create_perlcriticrc( )
This method creates a "perlcriticrc" in the distribution’s author test directory so that the behavior of "perl−critic.t" can be modified.

create_server_pl( )
This method creates "server.pl" in the distribution’s root directory.

create_t( @modules )
This method creates a bunch of *.t files. @modules is a list of all modules in the distribution.

create_tmpl( )
This method takes all the template files ending in .html (representing HTML::Template’s and installs them into a directory under the distro tree. For instance if the distro was called "Foo−Bar", the templates would be installed in "lib/Foo/Bar/templates".

Note the files will just be copied over not rendered.

create_xt( @modules )
This method creates a bunch of *.t files for author tests. @modules is a list of all modules in the distribution.

render( $template, \%options )
This method is given an HTML::Template and options and returns the resulting document.

Data in the "Module::Starter" object which represents a reference to an array @foo is transformed into an array of hashes with one key called $foo_item in order to make it usable in an HTML::Template "TMPL_LOOP". For example:

    $data = ['a'. 'b', 'c'];

would become:

    $data = [
        { data_item => 'a' },
        { data_item => 'b' },
        { data_item => 'c' },
    ];

so that in the template you could say:

    <tmpl_loop data>
        <tmpl_var data_item>
    </tmpl_loop>

templates ( )
This method reads in the template files and populates the object’s templates attribute. The module template directory is found by checking the "MODULE_TEMPLATE_DIR" environment variable and then the config option "template_dir".

Build_PL_guts($main_module, $main_pm_file)
This method is called by create_Build_PL and returns text used to populate Build.PL when the builder is Module::Build; $main_pm_file is the filename of the distribution’s main module, $main_module.

Changes_guts
Implements the creation of a "Changes" file.

LICENSE_guts
Implements the creation of a "LICENSE" file.

Makefile_PL_guts($main_module, $main_pm_file)
This method is called by create_Makefile_PL and returns text used to populate Makefile.PL when the builder is ExtUtils::MakeMaker; $main_pm_file is the filename of the distribution’s main module, $main_module.

MANIFEST_SKIP_guts
Implements the creation of a "MANIFEST.SKIP" file.

MI_Makefile_PL_guts($main_module, $main_pm_file)
This method is called by create_MI_Makefile_PL and returns text used to populate Makefile.PL when the builder is Module::Install; $main_pm_file is the filename of the distribution’s main module, $main_module.

module_guts($module, $rtname)
Implements the creation of a "README" file.

README_guts($build_instructions)
Implements the creation of a "README" file.

perlcriticrc_guts
Implements the creation of a "perlcriticrc" file.

server_pl_guts
Implements the creation of a "server.pl" file.

t_guts(@modules)
Implements the creation of test files. @modules is a list of all the modules in the distribution.

tmpl_guts
Implements the creation of template files.

xt_guts(@modules)
Implements the creation of test files for author tests. @modules is a list of all the modules in the distribution.
