NAME

Maypole::Application - Universal Maypole Frontend

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Maypole::Application;

    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML);

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug Config::YAML -Setup);

    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML Loader -Setup -Debug);

    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug2 MasonX AutoUntaint);



DESCRIPTION

This is a universal frontend for mod_perl1, mod_perl2, HTML::Mason and CGI.

Automatically determines the appropriate frontend for your environment (unless you want to use MasonX::Maypole, in which case include MasonX in the arguments).

Loads plugins supplied in the use statement.

Responds to flags supplied in the use statement.

Initializes the application’s configuration object.

You can omit the Maypole::Plugin:: prefix from plugins. So Maypole::Plugin::Config::YAML becomes Config::YAML.



    use Maypole::Application qw(Config::YAML);



You can also set special flags like -Setup, -Debug and -Init.



    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug Config::YAML -Setup);



The position of plugins in the chain is important, because they are loaded/executed in the same order they appear.

FRONTEND

Under mod_perl (1 or 2), selects Apache::MVC.

Otherwise, selects CGI::Maypole.

If MasonX is specified, sets MasonX::Maypole as the frontend. This currently also requires a mod_perl environment.

FLAGS

-Setup


    use Maypole::Application qw(-Setup);



is equivalent to



    use Maypole::Application;
    MyApp->setup;



Note that no options are passed to setup(). You must ensure that the required model config parameters are set in MyApp->config. See Maypole::Config for more information.

-Init


    use Maypole::Application qw(-Setup -Init);



is equivalent to



    use Maypole::Application;
    MyApp->setup;
    MyApp->init;



Note that the -Setup flag is required for the -Init flag to work.

In persistent environments (e.g. mod_perl), it is useful to call init once in the parent server, rather than at the beginning of the first request to each child server, in order to share the view code loaded during init. Note that you must supply all the config data to your app before calling setup and init, probably by using one of the Maypole::Plugin::Config::* plugins.

-Debug


    use Maypole::Application qw(-Debug);



is equivalent to



    use Maypole::Application;
    sub debug { 1 }



You can specify a higher debug level by saying -Debug2 etc.
