NAME Jifty -- Just Do It DESCRIPTION Yet another web framework. What's cool about Jifty? (Buzzwords) DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) Jifty tries not to make you say things more than once. Full-stack Out of the proverbial box, Jifty comes with one way to do everything you should need to do: One database mapper, one templating system, one web services layer, one AJAX toolkit, one set of handlers for standalone or FastCGI servers. We work hard to make all the bits play well together, so you don't have to. Continuations With Jifty, it's easy to let the user go off and do something else, like fill out a wizard, look something up in the help system or go twiddle their preferences and come right back to where they were. Form-based dispatch This is one of the things that Jifty does that we've not seen anywhere else. Jifty owns your form rendering and processing. This means you never need to write form handling logic. All you say is "I want an input for this argument here" and Jifty takes care of the rest. (Even autocomplete and validation) A Pony Jifty is the only web application framework that comes with a pony. Introduction If this is your first time using Jifty, Jifty::Manual::Tutorial is probably a better place to start. METHODS new PARAMHASH This class method instantiates a new "Jifty" object. This object deals with configuration files, logging and database handles for the system. Most of the time, the server will call this for you to set up your "Jifty" object. If you are writing command-line programs htat want to use your libraries (as opposed to web services) you will need to call this yourself. See Jifty::Config for details on how to configure your Jifty application. Arguments no_handle If this is set to true, Jifty will not create a Jifty::Handle and connect to a database. Only use this if you're about to drop the database or do something extreme like that; most of Jifty expects the handle to exist. Defaults to false. config An accessor for the Jifty::Config object that stores the configuration for the Jifty application. logger An accessor for our Jifty::Logger object for the application. handle An accessor for the Jifty::Handle object that stores the database handle for the application. web An accessor for the Jifty::Web object that the web interface uses.
