[Catalyst] Multiple Views in Catalyst (FW: Catalyst-dev Digest, Vol 29, Issue 14)

Huh?  I don't receive digests on this mail list, just individual emails.

I did not try it yet, but I just picked two other guys' brains about where
to put these two lines you suggested:
MyApp->config->{default_view} = 'Foo';

$c->stash(current_view => 'Bar');

They weren't sure, but suggested *.yml or MyApp.pm.  I was thinking Root.pm,
but not sure.  I will try all until it works, or I find more info.  I will
check documentation for $c->view as well.

Thanks for all the help,

(ohhh I did get a digest on the dev list, where I wasn't supposed to be.
Sorry about that.)

Please don't reply to digests. If you're going to be posting, subscribe

MyApp->config->{default_view} = 'Foo';

$c->stash(current_view => 'Bar');

That's how you set the default and per-request view. The docs for $c->view
in Catalyst.pm mention both these settings as well.

Did you try this yet?
