Hook error: No DSL object found at lib/Dancer2/Plugin/Cache/ line 67. #5

I am not sure if this is a problem with this plugin or a general Dancer2 issue.

When trying to rewrite the honor-no-cache.t test from Dancer2::Test to Plack::Test I encountered the following error. I have encountered the same error in the web app I am writing, that was what lead me to looking at the tests for Dancer2::Plugin::Cache::CHI.

The error is:

galley@mich:~/Dancer2-Plugin-Cache-CHI$ perl -I lib/ t/simple.t
ok 1 - got app
not ok 2 - Simple GET
#   Failed test 'Simple GET'
#   at t/simple.t line 26.
#          got: 'Internal Server Error
# Exception caught in '' filter: Hook error: No DSL object found at lib/Dancer2/Plugin/Cache/ line 67.
#  at /home/galley/perl5/perlbrew/perls/stable/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/Dancer2/Core/ line 653.
#  at /home/galley/perl5/perlbrew/perls/stable/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/Dancer2/Core/Role/ line 141.
# '
#     expected: '42'
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 2.

It is generated by this test:

use strict;
use warnings;

use Test::More tests => 2;
use Plack::Test;
use HTTP::Request::Common;

    package TestApp;

    use Dancer2;
    use Dancer2::Plugin::Cache::CHI;


    get '/test' => sub {
        return 42;

my $app = Dancer2->runner->psgi_app;
is ref $app, 'CODE', 'got app';

test_psgi $app, sub {
    my $cb  = shift;
    is $cb->(GET '/test')->content, 42, 'simple GET';

The good news is that I'm able to reproduce the problem. It seems that a few things changed under the hood. I'll try to fix that as soon as possible. But as I'm leaving for YAPC tomorrow morning, there might be a delay. Or the long airport hours might help, who knows. :-)


I think that the problem is that the hook is called from a hook. This happens because the cache is created by the hook made in check_page_cache, if I just forces the cache to be created before the hook is made it all works. The hack I did in order to test this was:

diff --git a/lib/Dancer2/Plugin/Cache/ b/lib/Dancer2/Plugin/Cache/
index b7e77b6..8daab10 100644
