SYNOPSIS # in config.yml template: handlebars engines: handlebars: helper_modules: - MyApp::HandlebarsHelpers # in the app get '/style/:style' => sub { template 'style' => { style => param('style') }; }; # in views/style.mustache That's a nice, manly {{style}} mustache you have there! DESCRIPTION Wrapper for Text::Handlebars, the Perl implementation of the Handlebars templating system. Configuration The arguments passed to the 'handlebars' engine are given directly to the Text::Handlebars constructor, with the exception of helper_modules (see below for details). Calls to 'template()' When calling template, one can use a filename as usual, or can pass a string reference, which will treated as the template itself. get '/file' => sub { # look for the file views/my_template.hbs template 'my_template', { name => 'Bob', }; }; get '/string' => sub { # provide the template directly template \'hello there {{name}}', { name => 'Bob', }; }; The default extension for Handlebars templates is 'hbs'. Helper Functions Handlebars helper functions can be defined in modules, which are passed via helper_modules in the configuration. See Dancer::Template::Handlebars::Helpers for more details on how to register the functions themselves. Layouts Layouts are supported. The content of the inner template will be available via the 'content' variable. Example of a perfectly valid, if slightly boring, layout: {{ content }} SEE ALSO Dancer::Template::Mustache - similar Dancer wrapper for Template::Mustache.
