NAME

       Dancer::Object::Singleton - Singleton base class for Dancer

VERSION

       version 1.3500

SYNOPSIS

           package My::Dancer::Extension;

           use strict;
           use warnings;
           use base 'Dancer::Object::Singleton';

           __PACKAGE__->attributes( qw/name value this that/ );

           sub init {
               my ($class, $instance) = @_;
               # our initialization code, if we need one
           }

           # .. later on ..

           # returns the unique instance
           my $singleton_intance = My::Dancer::Extension->instance();

DESCRIPTION

       Dancer::Object::Singleton is meant to be used instead of Dancer::Object, if you want your
       object to be a singleton, that is, a class that has only one instance in the application.

       It provides you with attributes and an initializer.

METHODS

   instance
       Returns the instance of the singleton. The instance is created only when needed. The
       creation will call the "init()" method, which you should implement.

   init
       Exists but does nothing. This is so you won't have to write an initializer if you don't
       want to. init receives the instance as argument.

   get_attributes
       Get the attributes of the specific class.

   attributes
       Generates attributes for whatever object is extending Dancer::Object and saves them in an
       internal hashref so they can be later fetched using "get_attributes".
