NAME

HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason - An abstract baseclass for a standalone mason server

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



        my $server = MyApp::Server->new();
       
        $server->run;
       
        package MyApp::Server;
        use base qw/HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason/;
       
        sub mason_config {
            return ( comp_root => /tmp/mason-pages );
        }



DESCRIPTION

INTERFACE

See HTTP::Server::Simple and the documentation below.

    mason_handler

Returns the server’s HTML::Mason::CGIHandler object. The first time this method is called, it creates a new handler by calling new_handler.

    handle_request CGI

Called with a CGI object. Invokes mason and runs the request

    handle_error ERROR

If the call to handle_request dies, handle_error is called with the exception (that is, $@). By default, it does nothing; it can be overriden by your subclass.

    new_handler

Creates and returns a new HTML::Mason::CGIHandler, with configuration specified by the default_mason_config and mason_config methods. You don’t need to call this method yourself; mason_handler will automatically call it the first time it is called.

    handler_class

Returns the name of the Mason handler class invoked in new_handler. Defaults to HTML::Mason::CGIHandler, but in your subclass you may wish to change it to a subclass of HTML::Mason::CGIHandler.

setup_escapes CW$handler

Sets up the Mason escapes for the handler $handler. For example, the h in



  <% $name | h %>



By default, sets h to HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason::escape_utf8 and u to HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason::escape_uri, but you can override this in your subclass.

    mason_config

Returns a subclass-defined mason handler configuration; you almost certainly want to override it and specify at least comp_root.

    default_mason_config

Returns the default mason handler configuration (which can be overridden by entries in mason_config).

    escape_utf8 SCALARREF

does a css-busting but minimalist escaping of whatever html you’re passing in.

    escape_uri SCALARREF

Escapes URI component according to RFC2396

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

For most configuration, see HTTP::Server::Simple.

You can (and must) configure your mason CGI handler by subclassing this module and overriding the subroutine mason_config. It’s most important that you set a component root (where your pages live) by adding



    comp_root => /some/absolute/path



See the Synopsis section or ex/sample_server.pl in the distribution for a complete example.
