NAME

Curio::Role::GitLab::API::v4 - Build Curio classes around GitLab::API::v4.

SYNOPSIS

Create your Curio class:

package MyApp::Service::GitLab;

use Curio role => '::GitLab::API::v4';
use strictures 2;

use Exporter qw( import );
our @EXPORT = qw( myapp_gitlab );

add_key 'anonymous';
add_key 'bot-wiki-updater';
add_key 'bot-user-manager';

default_key 'anonymous';

default_arguments (
    url => 'https://git.example.com/api/v4',
);

sub private_token {
    my ($self) = @_;
    return undef if $self->connection_key() eq 'anonymous';
    return get_secret_somehow(
        'gitlab-token-' . $self->connection_key(),
    );
}

sub myapp_gitlab {
    return __PACKAGE__->fetch( @_ )->api();
}

1;

Then use your new Curio class elsewhere:

use MyApp::Service::GitLab;

my $api = myapp_gitlab('bot-user-manager');

DESCRIPTION

This role provides all the basics for building a Curio class which wraps around GitLab::API::v4.

ATTRIBUTES

connection_key

my $key = MyApp::Service::GitLab
          ->fetch('bot-user-manager')
          ->connection_key();

The connection_key holds the Curio key. So, in the example above it would return bot-user-manager. This attribute's primary purpose is to facilitate the writing of token methods as shown in "TOKENS".

api

my $api = MyApp::Service::GitLab
          ->fetch('bot-user-manager')
          ->api();

Holds the GitLab::API::v4 object.

TOKENS

In your Curio class you may create two methods, access_token and private_token. If either/both of these methods exist and return a defined value then they will be used when constructing the "api" object.

In the "SYNOPSIS" a sample private_token method is shown:

sub private_token {
    my ($self) = @_;
    return undef if $self->connection_key() eq 'anonymous';
    return get_secret_somehow(
        'gitlab-token-' . $self->connection_key(),
    );
}

The get_secret_somehow call is expected to be the place where you use whatever tool you use to hold your GitLab tokens and likely all passwords and other credentials (secrets) that your application needs.

Some common tools that people use to manage their secrets are Kubernetes' secrets objects, AWS's Secret Manager, HashiCorp's Vault, or just an inescure configuration file; to name a few.

So, the way you write your token methods is going to be unique to your setup.

CACHING

This role sets the "does_caching" in Curio::Factory feature.

You can of course disable this.

does_caching 0;
