NAME

       Dancer::Config::Object - Access the config via methods instead of hashrefs

VERSION

       version 1.3500

DESCRIPTION

       If "strict_config" is set to a true value in the configuration, the "config()" subroutine
       will return an object instead of a hashref. Instead of this:

        my $serializer = config->{serializer};
        my $username   = config->{auth}{username};

       You get this:

        my $serializer = config->serializer;
        my $username   = config->auth->username;

       This helps to prevent typos. If you mistype a configuration name:

        my $pass = config->auth->pass;

       An exception will be thrown, tell you it can't find the method name, but listing available
       methods:

        Can't locate config attribute "pass".
        Available attributes: password, username

       If the hash key cannot be converted into a proper method name, you can still access it via
       a hash reference:

        my $some_value = config->{'99_bottles'};

       And call methods on it, if possible:

        my $sadness = config->{'99_more_bottles'}->last_bottle;

       Hash keys pointing to hash references will in turn have those "objectified".  Arrays will
       still be returned as array references. However, hashrefs inside of the array refs may
       still have their keys allowed as methods:

        my $some_value = config->some_list->[1]->host;

METHOD NAME DEFINITION

       We use the following regular expression to determine if a hash key qualifies as a method:

        /^[[:alpha:]_][[:word:]]*$/;

       Note that this means "naïve" (note the dots over the i) can be a method name, but unless
       you "use utf8;" to declare that your source code is UTF-8, you may have disappointing
       results calling "config->naïve". Further, depending on your version of Perl and the
       software to read your config file ... well, you get the idea. We recommend sticking with
       ASCII identifiers if you wish your code to be portable.

       Patches/suggestions welcome.
