Catalyst::Helper::View::TTSite(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Catalyst::Helper::View::TTSite(3)

Catalyst::Helper::View::TTSite - Helper for TT view which builds a skeleton web site

# use the helper to create the view module and templates

    $ script/ view HTML TTSite

# add something like the following to your main application module

    sub message : Global {
        my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
        $c->stash->{template} = 'message.tt2';
        $c->stash->{message}  ||= $c->req->param('message') || 'No message';

    sub default : Private {
        my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
        $c->stash->{template} = 'welcome.tt2';

    sub end : Private { # Or use Catalyst::Action::RenderView
        my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
        $c->forward( $c->view('HTML') );

This helper module creates a TT View module. It goes further than Catalyst::Helper::View::TT in that it additionally creates a simple set of templates to get you started with your web site presentation.

It creates the templates in root/ directory underneath your main project directory. In here two further subdirectories are created: root/src which contains the main page templates, and root/lib containing a library of other template components (header, footer, etc.) that the page templates use.

The view module that the helper creates is automatically configured to locate these templates.

To render a template the following process is applied:

The configuration template root/lib/config/main is rendered. This is controlled by the "PRE_PROCESS" configuration variable set in the controller generated by Catalyst::Helper::View::TTsite. Additionally, templates referenced by the "PROCESS" directive will then be rendered. By default the following additional templates are set: root/lib/config/col, which defines color names and RGB their RGB values and /root/lib/config/url, which defines site wide variables available to templates.

Next, the template defined by the "WRAPPER" config variable is called. The default wrapper template is located in root/lib/site/wrapper. The wrapper template passes files with ".css/.js/.txt" extensions through as text OR processes the templates defined after the "WRAPPER" directive: "site/html" and "site/layout".

Based on the default value of the "WRAPPER" directive in root/lib/site/wrapper, the following templates are processed in order:

  • root/src/your_template.tt2
  • root/lib/site/footer
  • root/lib/site/header
  • root/lib/site/layout
  • root/lib/site/html

Finally, the rendered content is returned to the browser.
