NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Twitter - Twitter when you release with Dist::Zilla

VERSION

version 0.014

SYNOPSIS

In your dist.ini:

   [Twitter]
   hash_tags = #foo
   url_shortener = TinyURL

In your .netrc:

    machine api.twitter.com
      login YOUR_TWITTER_USER_NAME
      password YOUR_TWITTER_PASSWORD

DESCRIPTION

This plugin will use Net::Twitter with the login and password in your .netrc file to send a release notice to Twitter. By default, it will include a link to your README file as extracted on a fast CPAN mirror. This works very nicely with Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReadmeFromPod.

The default configuration is as follows:

   [Twitter]
   tweet_url = http://cpan.cpantesters.org/authors/id/{{$AUTHOR_PATH}}/{{$DIST}}-{{$VERSION}}{{$TRIAL}}.readme
   tweet = Released {{$DIST}}-{{$VERSION}}{{$TRIAL}} {{$URL}}
   url_shortener = TinyURL

The tweet_url is shortened with WWW::Shorten::TinyURL or whichever other service you choose and appended to the tweet message. The following variables are available for substitution in the URL and message templates:

       DIST        # Foo-Bar
       ABSTRACT    # Foo-Bar is a module that FooBars
       VERSION     # 1.23
       TRIAL       # -TRIAL if is_trial, empty string otherwise.
       TARBALL     # Foo-Bar-1.23.tar.gz
       AUTHOR_UC   # JOHNDOE
       AUTHOR_LC   # johndoe
       AUTHOR_PATH # J/JO/JOHNDOE
       URL         # http://tinyurl.com/...

You must be using the UploadToCPAN or FakeRelease plugin for this plugin to determine your CPAN author ID.

You can use the hash_tags option to append hash tags (or anything, really) to the end of the message generated from tweet.

   [Twitter]
   hash_tags = #perl #cpan #foo
