in reply to How to organize Catalyst stash

When I'm not using a JSON view, I pass data as objects. But the JSON view doesn't handle objects well, so then I serialize the objects and pass hashrefs.

Since most of my more interesting pages have plenty of jQuery and Ajax calls, passing objects becomes more or less impossible.

    That means you should write specialized view classes and call that view from the controller, instead of doing the serialization in the controller.

      I don't serialize in the controller. All my controllers do is pass data to the view.

        Sorry, I should have said: Don't prepare view-specific hashrefs in the controller, create custom view classes to do that.

        I think you understood I was implying you were creating the JSON string in the controller, and that's not the case. What I meant was the building of the hashref that you pass to the json view. The way to build that hashref should be in the view, not the controller.
