If this key isn't found it will search for a Content-Type header for the format. Further if neither are found a default format will be applied. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'stash_key'} = 'content_type'; =item default Determines which Content-Type to use by default. Default: 'text/plain' $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config('default' => 'text/plain'); =item content_type A hash ref of hash refs. Each key in content_type is Content-Type that is handled by this view. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'content_type'}{'text/csv'} = { outfile_ext => 'csv', module => 'My::Module' }; The Content-Type key refers to it's own hash of parameters to determine the actions thie view should take for that Content-Type. 'outfile_ext' - The extenstion of the file that will downloaded. 'module' - The name of the module that will handle data output. If there is a plus symbol '+' at the beginning of the module name, this will indicate that the module is either a MyApp::View module or a Catalyst::View module and the appropriate namespace will be added to the beginning of the module name. # Module Loaded: Catalyst::View::Download::CSV $c->view('MyApp::View::Download') ->config ->{'content_type'}{'text/csv'}{'module'} = '+Download::CSV'; # Module Loaded: My::Module::CSV $c->view('MyApp::View::Download') ->config ->{'content_type'}{'text/csv'}{'module'} = 'My::Module::CSV'; =back =head1 Content-Type Module Requirements Any module set as 'the' module for a certain Content-Type needs to have a subroutine named 'render' that returns the content to output with the following parameters handled. =over =item $c The catalyst $c variable =item $template In case a template file is needed for the module. This view will pass $c->stash->{template} as this value. =item $args A list of arguments the module will use to process the data into content. This view will pass $c->stash as this value. =back =head1 INCLUDED CONTENT TYPES =head2 text/csv Catalyst::View::Download has the following default configuration for this Content-Type. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'content_type'}{'text/csv'} = { outfile_ext => 'csv', module => '+Download::CSV' }; See L for more details. =head2 text/html Catalyst::View::Download has the following default configuration for this Content-Type. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'content_type'}{'text/html'} = { outfile_ext => 'html', module => '+Download::HTML' }; See L for more details. =head2 text/plain Catalyst::View::Download has the following default configuration for this Content-Type. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'default'} = 'text/plain'; $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'content_type'}{'text/plain'} = { outfile_ext => 'txt', module => '+Download::Plain' }; See L for more details. =head2 text/xml Catalyst::View::Download has the following default configuration for this Content-Type. $c->view('MyApp::View::Download')->config->{'content_type'}{'text/xml'} = { outfile_ext => 'xml', module => '+Download::XML' }; See L for more details. =head1 BUGS =head1 SEE ALSO L, L =head1 AUTHOR Travis Chase, C<< >> =head1 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks to following people for their constructive comments and help: =over =item J.
