NAME

DBIx::Class::Helper::Row::ToJSON - Remove the boilerplate from your TO_JSON functions

SYNOPSIS

 package MyApp::Schema::Result::KittenRobot;
 use parent 'DBIx::Class::Core';
 __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw{Helper::Row::ToJSON});
 __PACKAGE__->table('KittenRobot');
 __PACKAGE__->add_columns(
    id => {
       data_type         => 'integer',
       is_auto_increment => 1,
    },
    kitten => {
       data_type         => 'integer',
    },
    robot => {
       data_type         => 'text',
       is_nullable       => 1,
    },
    your_mom => {
       data_type         => 'blob',
       is_nullable       => 1,
       is_serializable   => 1,
    },
 );
 1;
This helper adds a JSON method like the following:
 sub TO_JSON {
    return {
       id       => $self->id,
       kitten   => $self->kitten,
       # robot  => $self->robot,    # <-- doesn't serialize text columns
       your_mom => $self->your_mom, # <-- normally wouldn't but explicitly
                                    #     asked for in the column spec above
    }
 }

METHODS

_is_column_serializable

 $self->_is_column_serializable('kitten')
returns true if a column should be serializable or not. Currently this marks everything as serializable unless "is_serializable" is set to false, or "data_type" is a "blob", "text", or "ntext" columns. If you wanted to only have explicit serialization you might override this method to look like this:
 sub _is_column_serializable {
    my ( $self, $column ) = @_;
    my $info = $self->column_info($column);
    return defined $info->{is_serializable} && $info->{is_serializable};
 }

serializable_columns

 $self->serializable_columns
simply returns a list of columns that TO_JSON should serialize.

TO_JSON

 $self->TO_JSON
returns a hashref representing your object. Override this method to add data to the returned hashref:
 sub TO_JSON {
    my $self = shift;
    return {
       customer_name => $self->customer->name,
       %{ $self->next::method },
    }
 }
