NAME

       Padre::Browser -- documentation browser for Padre

DESCRIPTION

       Provide an interface for retrieving / generating documentation, resolving terms to
       documentation (search?) and formatting documentation.

       Allow new packages to be loaded and interrogated for the MIME types they can generate
       documentation for. Provide similar mechanism for registering new documentation viewers and
       URI schemes accepted for resolving.

       NOTE: I think all the method names are wrong. Blast it.

SYNOPSIS

         # Does perlish things by default via 'Padre::Browser::POD'
         my $browser = Padre::Browser->new;
         my $source = Padre::Document->new( filename=>'source/Package.pm' );

         my $docs = $browser->docs( $source );
         # $docs provided by Browser::POD->generate
         #  should be Padre::Browser::Document , application/x-pod

         my $output = $browser->browse( $docs );
         # $output provided by Browser::POD->render
         #  should be Padre::Document , text/x-html

         $browser->load_viewer( 'Padre::Browser::PodAdvanced' );
         # PodAdvanced->render might add an html TOC in addition to
         #  just pod2html

         my $new_output = $browser->browse( $docs );
         # $new_output now with a table of contents

METHODS

   new
       Boring constructor, pass nothing. Yet.

   load_provider
       Accepts a single class name, will attempt to auto-use the class and interrogate its
       "provider_for" method. Any MIME types returned will be associated with the class for
       dispatch to "generate".

       Additionally, interrogate class for "accept_schemes" and associate the class with URI
       schemes for dispatch to "resolve".

   load_viewer
       Accepts a single class name, will attempt to auto-use the class and interrogate its
       "viewer_for" method. Any MIME types returned will be associated with the class for
       dispatch to "render".

   resolve
       Accepts a URI or scalar

   browse
   accept

EXTENDING

         package My::Browser::Doxygen;

         # URI of doxygen:$string or doxygen://path?query
         sub accept_schemes {
             'doxygen',
         }

         sub provider_for {
             'text/x-c++src'
         }

         sub viewer_for {
             'text/x-doxygen',
         }

         sub generate {
             my ($self,$doc) = @_;
             # $doc will be Padre::Document of any type specified
             # by ->provider_for

             # push $doc through doxygen
             # ...
             # that was easy :)

             # You know your own output type, be explicit
             my $response = Padre::Document->new;
             $response->{original_content} = $doxygen->output;
             $response->set_mimetype( 'text/x-doxygen' );
             return $response;
         }

         sub render {
             my ($self,$docs) = @_;
             # $docs will be of any type specified
             # by ->viewer_for;

             ## turn $docs into doxygen(y) html document
             #  ...
             #

             my $response = Padre::Document->new;
             $response->{original_content} = $doxy2html->output;
             $response->set_mimetype( 'text/x-html' );
             return $response;

         }
