NAME
Dancer::Plugin::FlashMessage - Dancer plugin to display temporary messages, so called "flash messages". VERSION
version 0.314 DESCRIPTION
This plugin helps you display temporary messages, so called "flash messages". It provides a "flash()" method to define the message. The plugin then takes care of attaching the content to the session, propagating it to the templating system, and then removing it from the session. However, it's up to you to have a place in your views or layout where the message will be displayed. But that's not too hard (see SYNOPSYS). Basically, the plugin gives you access to the 'flash' hash in your views. It can be used to display flash messages. By default, the plugin works using a decent configuration. However, you can change the behaviour of the plugin. See CONFIGURATION NAME
Dancer::Plugin::FlashMessage - A plugin to display "flash messages" : short temporary messages SYNOPSYS
Example with Template Toolkit In your configuration, make sure you have session configured. Of course you can use any session engine : session: "simple" In your index.tt view or in your layout : <% IF flash.error %> <div class=error> <% flash.error %> </div> <% END %> In your css : .error { background: #CEE5F5; padding: 0.5em; border: 1px solid #AACBE2; } In your Dancer App : package MyWebService; use Dancer; use Dancer::Plugin::FlashMessage; get '/hello' => sub { flash error => 'Error message'; template 'index'; }; METHODS
flash # sets the flash message for the warning key flash warning => 'some warning message'; # retrieves and removes the flash message for the warning key my $warning_message = flash 'warning'; This method can take 1 or 2 parameters. When called with two parameters, it sets the flash message for the given key. When called with one parameter, it returns the value of the flash message of the given key. The message is deleted from the flash hash in the session. In both cases, "flash" always returns the value; IN YOUR TEMPLATE
After having set a flash message using "flash" in your Dancer route, you can access the flash message from within your template. The plugin provides you with the "flash" hashref, that you can access in your template, for example like this : <div class=error> <% flash.error %> </div> When you use it in your template, the flash message is deleted. So next time, "flash.error" will not exist. CONFIGURATION
With no configuration whatsoever, the plugin will work fine, thus contributing to the keep it simple motto of Dancer. configuration default values These are the default values. See below for a description of the keys plugins: FlashMessage: token_name: flash session_hash_key: _flash configuration description token_name The name of the template token that will contain the hash of flash messages. Default : "flash" session_hash_key You probably don't need that, but this setting allows you to change the name of the session key used to store the hash of flash messages. It may be useful in the unlikely case where you have key name conflicts in your session. Default : "_flash" COPYRIGHT
