Catalyst::View::Component::SubInclude::SSI(3) Server Side Includes (SSI) plugin for C::V::Component::SubInclude


Version 0.10


In your view class:

package MyApp::View::TT;
use Moose;
extends 'Catalyst::View::TT';
with 'Catalyst::View::Component::SubInclude';
__PACKAGE__->config( subinclude_plugin => 'SSI' );

Then, somewhere in your templates:

  [% subinclude('/my/widget') %]


"Catalyst::View::Component::SubInclude::SSI" renders "subinclude" calls as Server Side Includes (SSI) include directives. This is a feature implemented by Apache (<>), nginx (<>) and many other web servers which allows cache-efficient uses of includes.


generate_subinclude( $c, $path, @args )

Note that $path should be the private action path - translation to the public path is handled internally. After translation, this will roughly translate to the following code:

  my $url = $c->uri_for( $translated_path, @args )->path_query;
  return '<!--#include virtual="$url" -->';

Notice that the stash will always be empty. This behavior could be configurable in the future through an additional switch - for now, this behavior guarantees a common interface for plugins.
