Dancer::Plugin::MobileDevice README
package MyWebApp;
use Dancer;
use Dancer::Plugin::MobileDevice;
get '/' => sub {
if (is_mobile_device) {
# do something for mobile
else {
# do something for regular agents
A plugin for Dancer-powered webapps to easily detect mobile clients and
offer a simplified layout, and/or act in different ways.
The plugin offers a `is_mobile_device' keyword, which returns true if
the device is recognised as a mobile device.
It can also automatically change the layout used to render views for
mobile clients.
Custom layout for mobile devices
This plugin can use a custom layout for recognised mobile devices,
allowing you to present a simplified page template for mobile devices.
To enable this, use the `mobile_layout' setting for this plugin - for
instance, add the following to your config file:
mobile_layout: 'mobile'
This means that, when `template' is called to render a view, if the
client is recognised as a mobile device, the layout named `mobile' will
be used, rather than whatever the current `layout' setting is.
You can of course still override this layout by supplying a layout
option to the `template' call in the usual way (see the Dancer
documentation for how to do this).
