PowerNap - A short but strict REST service framework
PowerNap is simple way to write strict and concise restful web APIs.
The core of PowerNap is the PowerNap::Controller. This role provides a number of default methods and a verb dispatcher. Given a
Enum and a
Map the dispatcher routes to the relevant method and attempts to call the method with the given
Map. If there is a type mismatch or missing required pairs a 501 response will be returned, 500 if any other exception is thrown and the method controlls any other responses.
All returned values are classes which implement the
PowerNap::Result role. These result objects can be introspected as to their error code, if they are an error and impliment an
.ok(Str --> Map) method to allow localised error messages in chained method calls. All result objects implemt the
Serialise::Map (see), as such calling
.to-map(--> Map).&to-json will provide a serialised response.
When selecting response codes for your controller methods you should consider recent HTTP RFCs or similar.
