SYNOPSISThis template engine allows you to use Template::Tiny in Dancer2.
Template::Tiny is an implementation of a subset of Template::Toolkit (the major parts) which takes much less memory and is faster. If you're only using the main functions of Template::Toolkit, you could use Template::Tiny. You can also seamlessly move back to Template::Toolkit whenever you want.
However, Dancer2 uses a modified version of Template::Tiny, which is Dancer2::Template::Implementation::ForkedTiny. It adds 2 features :
- opening and closing tag are now configurable
- CodeRefs are evaluated and their results is inserted in the result.
You can read more on Dancer2::Template::Implementation::ForkedTiny.
To use this engine, all you need to configure in your Dancer2's "config.yaml":
Of course, you can also set this while working using "set":
# code code code set template => 'tiny';
Since Dancer2 has internal support for a wrapper-like option with the "layout" configuration option, you can have a Template::Toolkit-like WRAPPER even though Template::Tiny doesn't really support it.
render($template, \%tokens)Renders the template. The first arg is a filename for the template file or a reference to a string that contains the template. The second arg is a hashref for the tokens that you wish to pass to Template::Toolkit for rendering.
