Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Test::ReportPrereqs - Report on prerequisite versions during automated testing
# in dist.ini [Test::ReportPrereqs] include = Acme::FYI exclude = Acme::Dont::Care
This Dist::Zilla plugin adds a t/00-report-prereqs.t test file. If AUTOMATED_TESTING is true, it reports the version of all modules listed in the distribution metadata prerequisites (including 'recommends', 'suggests', etc.).
If a MYMETA.json file exists and CPAN::Meta is installed on the testing machine, MYMETA.json will be examined for prerequisites in addition, as it would include any dynamic prerequisites not set in the distribution metadata.
Versions are reported based on the result of
parse_version from ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which means prerequisite modules are not actually loaded (which avoids various edge cases with certain modules). Parse errors are reported as "undef". If a module is not installed, "missing" is reported instead of a version string.
include attribute can be specified (multiple times) to add modules to the report. This can be useful if there is a module in the dependency chain that is problematic but is not directly required by this project.
exclude attribute can be specified (multiple times) to remove modules from the report (if you had a reason to do so).
Other Dist::Zilla::Plugins do similar things in slightly different ways that didn't suit my style and needs.
- Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Test::PrereqsFromMeta -- requires prereqs to be satisfied
Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Test::ReportVersions -- bundles a copy of YAML::Tiny, reads prereqs only from META.yml, and attempts to load them with
Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Test::ReportVersions::Tiny -- static list only, loads modules with
