NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate::Driver::HTMLTemplateExpr - HTML::Template::Expr driver to AnyTemplate

DESCRIPTION

This is a driver for CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate, which provides the implementation details specific to rendering templates via the HTML::Template::Expr templating system.
All "AnyTemplate" drivers are designed to be used the same way. For general usage instructions, see the documentation of CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate.

EMBEDDED COMPONENT SYNTAX (HTML::Template::Expr)

Syntax

The HTML::Template::Expr syntax for embedding components is:
    <TMPL_VAR EXPR="CGIAPP_embed('some_run_mode', param1, param2, 'literal string3')">
This can be overridden by the following configuration variables:
    embed_tag_name       # default 'CGIAPP_embed'
For instance by setting the following value in your configuration file:
    embed_tag_name       '__ACME_render'
Then the embedded component tag will look like:
    <TMPL_VAR EXPR="__ACME_render('some_run_mode')">
The value of "embed_tag_name" must consist of numbers, letters and underscores ("_"), and must not begin with a number.

CONFIGURATION

The CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate::Driver::HTMLTemplateExpr driver accepts the following config parameters:
embed_tag_name
The name of the tag used for embedding components. Defaults to "CGIAPP_embed".
template_extension
If "auto_add_template_extension" is true, then CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate will append the value of "template_extension" to "filename". By default the "template_extension" is ".html".
associate_query
This feature is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
 
If this config parameter is true, then CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate::Driver::HTMLTemplateExpr will copy all of the webapp's query params into the template using HTML::Template::Expr's "associate" mechanism:
 
    my $driver = HTML::Template::Expr->new(
        associate => $self->query,
    );
    
 
By default "associate_query" is false.
 
If you provide an "associate" config parameter of your own, that will disable the "associate_query" functionality.
All other configuration parameters are passed on unchanged to HTML::Template::Expr.

required_modules

The "required_modules" function returns the modules required for this driver to operate. In this case: "HTML::Template::Expr".

DRIVER METHODS

initialize
Initializes the "HTMLTemplateExpr" driver. See the docs for CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate::Base for details.
render_template
Fills the HTML::Template::Expr object with "$self->param", and returns the output (as a string reference).
 
See the docs for CGI::Application::Plugin::AnyTemplate::Base for details.
