I've been working on a Catalyst application, and have come across a few places that appear difficult to generate a URI for using uri_for(). I'm thinking of creating a plugin that can provide the functionality I'm looking for.
In particular, when I am in a controller whose actions are chained, I would like to be able to be able to generate URIs for: - actions in the parent controller (earlier in the chain) - actions in the controller we are in - actions in a child controller (later in the chain) - actions in a non-related controller I've been able to generate the URIs I want using uri_for(), except for actions in a parent controller (earlier in the chain). The syntax to create some of the other URIs is a bit complicated, and I find I have to look it up every time. The plugin Catalyst::Plugin::URI provides a simplified syntax. My idea is to create a plugin with an interface something like this: # URI for 'list' action on the current controller $c->internal_uri(action => 'list'); # URI for 'view' action on the parent controller (up the chain) $c->internal_uri(controller => '..', action => 'view'); # URI for 'list' action on a child or unrelated controller $c->internal_uri(controller => $name, action => 'list', captures => \@values); Any advice or perspectives that would help me create such a plugin, or make it more useful? -kolibrie _______________________________________________ List: Catalyst@lists.scsys.co.uk Listinfo: http://lists.scsys.co.uk/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/catalyst Searchable archive: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/ Dev site: http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/
