[dancer-users] Injecting templates

Hi Will

No I don’t think this helps – let me clarify

Imagine a master page split into 4 quarters. Each quarter is effectively a widget whose output is determined by a separate module. We would need to call a package which would run some code, and using that data render a tt file without inserting this into “layout”. The parent would call 4 packages and receive 4 sets of html.

The master would then have a final tt file which includes 4 variables which are replaced with the outputs from the above. This is then finally rendered into layout.

Hope that clarifies

Hi All

Need some guidance as to the options available

I currently have a module which renders a template as a whole page. I want to separate some stuff as its getting a little messy
This module is called by a parent controller. I want the parent controller to effectively call a master template render, and into that template I want to inject the content generated by the above sub module.

So to be clear:

               Call sub_module
                              Return template abc

Parent Controller
               $Inject = sub_module ; (renders a tt)

               Template xyz { parent_info = $x, inject_info = $inject }

               The parent template would simply then have a variable where the $inject output is replaced

“template” is designed to render the whole page using layout – I am looking for something similar to the process template control of template toolkit.

Hope I made myself clear

Hi, Z.

I’m not exactly sure what you are trying to achieve but perhaps template cascading from Text::Xslate may help.
