streaming support depends on the webserver as much as the framework , and a grep shows Dancer higher than 1.3072 supports streaming

Streaming data using dancer, Re^3: Resume downloads, Re^2: file download with connection problems,

This was really hard to write as the documentation has holes on this, there are no tests on this in test suite, and Dancer hides the errors from these callbacks, so you have to eval { ...; 1 } or warn $@;

get '/stream_example' => sub { return send_file( \'fake contents to be replaced in override', streaming => 1, callbacks => { override => sub { eval { my ( $respond, $response ) = @_; require LWP; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $writer ; $ua->get( '', ':content_cb' => sub { my ( $data, $response, $protocol ) = @_; if(not $writer ){ my $h = $response->headers ; my $r = [ $response->code, [ map { $_ => $h->{$_}, } 'last-modified' , 'date' , 'content-length' , +'etag' , 'content-type' ], ]; $writer = $respond->( $r ); } $writer->write( $data ); }, ## end of :content_cb ); ## end of $ua->get } or warn "\n\n OH NO\n$@\n\n"; return; }, ## end of override }, ); ## end of send_file }; ## end of get '/stream_example'

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
