Dancer2::Template::Simple(3) Pure Perl 5 template engine for Dancer2


version 0.200002


To use this engine, you may configure Dancer2 via "config.yaml":

template: simple


This template engine is provided as a default one for the Dancer2 micro framework.

This template engine should be fine for development purposes but is not a powerful one, it's written in pure Perl and has no C bindings to accelerate the template processing.

If you want to power an application with Dancer2 in production environment, it's strongly advised to switch to Dancer2::Template::TemplateToolkit.


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.


A template written for "Dancer2::Template::Simple" should be working just fine with Dancer2::Template::TemplateToolkit. The opposite is not true though.
To interpolate a variable in the template, use the following syntax:

    <% var1 %>

If var1 exists in the tokens hash given, its value will be written there.
