NAME

Dancer::Plugin::Ajax - a plugin for adding Ajax route handlers

VERSION

version 1.3202

SYNOPSIS

    package MyWebApp;
    use Dancer;
    use Dancer::Plugin::Ajax;
    ajax '/check_for_update' => sub {
        # ... some Ajax code
    };
    dance;

DESCRIPTION

The "ajax" keyword which is exported by this plugin allow you to define a route handler optimized for Ajax queries.
The route handler code will be compiled to behave like the following:
Pass if the request header X-Requested-With doesnt equal XMLHttpRequest
Disable the layout
The action built matches POST / GET requests.

CONFIGURATION

By default the plugin will use a content-type of 'text/xml' but this can be overwritten with plugin setting 'content_type'.
Here is example to use JSON:
  plugins:
    'Ajax':
      content_type: 'application/json'
