NAME

       Catalyst::Plugin::SmartURI - Configurable URIs for Catalyst

SYNOPSIS

       In your lib/MyApp.pm, load the plugin and your other plugins, for example:

           use Catalyst qw/
               -Debug
               ConfigLoader
               Static::Simple
               Session
               Session::Store::Memcached
               Session::State::Cookie
               Authentication
               Authorization::Roles
               +CatalystX::SimpleLogin
               SmartURI
           /;

       In your .conf:

           <Plugin::SmartURI>
               disposition host-header   # application-wide
               uri_class   URI::SmartURI # by default
           </Plugin::SmartURI>

       Per request:

           $c->uri_disposition('absolute');

       Methods on URIs:

           <a href="[% c.uri_for('/foo').relative %]" ...

DESCRIPTION

       Configure whether "$c->uri_for" and "$c->req->uri_with" return absolute, hostless or
       relative URIs, or URIs based on the 'Host' header. Also allows configuring which URI class
       to use. Works on application-wide or per-request basis.

       This is useful in situations where you're for example, redirecting to a lighttpd from a
       firewall rule, instead of a real proxy, and you want your links and redirects to still
       work correctly.

       To use your own URI class, just subclass URI::SmartURI and set "uri_class", or write a
       class that follows the same interface.

       This plugin installs a custom "$c->request_class", however it does so in a way that won't
       break if you've already set "$c->request_class" yourself, ie. by using
       Catalyst::Action::REST (thanks mst!).

       There is a minor performance penalty in perls older than 5.10, due to Class::C3, but only
       at initialization time.

METHODS

   $c->uri_for
   $c->req->uri_with
       Returns a "$c->uri_class" object (URI::SmartURI by default) in the configured
       "$c->uri_disposition".

   $c->req->uri
       Returns a "$c->uri_class" object. If the context hasn't been prepared yet, uses the
       configured value for "uri_class".

       "$c->req->uri->relative" will be relative to "$c->req->base".

   $c->req->referer
       Returns a "$c->uri_class" object for the referer (or configured "uri_class" if there's no
       context) with reference set to "$c->req->uri" if it comes from "$c->req->base".

       In other words, if referer is your app, you can do "$c->req->referer->relative" and it
       will do the right thing.

CONFIGURATION

       In myapp.conf:

           <Plugin::SmartURI>
               disposition absolute
               uri_class   URI::SmartURI
           </Plugin::SmartURI>

       disposition
           One of 'absolute', 'hostless', 'relative' or 'host-header'.  Defaults to 'absolute'.

           The special disposition 'host-header' uses the value of your 'Host:' header.

       uri_class
           The class to use for URIs, defaults to URI::SmartURI.

PER REQUEST

           package MyAPP::Controller::RSSFeed;

           ...

           sub begin : Private {
               my ($self, $c) = @_;

               $c->uri_class('Your::URI::Class::For::Request');
               $c->uri_disposition('absolute');
           }

       $c->uri_disposition('absolute'|'hostless'|'relative'|'host-header')
           Set URI disposition to use for the duration of the request.

       $c->uri_class($class)
           Set the URI class to use for "$c->uri_for" and "$c->req->uri_with" for the duration of
           the request.

EXTENDING

       "$c->prepare_uri" actually creates the URI, which you can override.

       from #catalyst:

       vipul came up with the idea

       mst came up with the design and implementation details for the current version

TODO

       I'd like to extend on Catalyst::Plugin::RequireSSL, and make a plugin that rewrites URIs
       for actions with an SSL attribute.
