NAME Task::BeLike::JJNAPIORK - Stuff I always use SYNOPSIS cpanm Task::BeLike::JJNAPIORK DESCRIPTION When I bootstrap a new project, or when someone wants to contribute to one of my projects, there's a handful of modules you need which are not listed in the "Makefile.PL". Think of these as 'meta' projects files, or like a SDK for working on CPAN modules. They are not things someone who is just using the module needs, just authors. This module is intended to bundle those together so as to make it faster for me to bootstrap a new project and to make it easier for anyone that wants to contribute to a project I am working on. Also, its one less thing I need to do when getting started on a new project or reviving an old one. USAGE Typically when I start a new project, I build my "Makefile.PL" around the Module::Install ecosystem. I also use App::cpanminus and a few other bits to make using local::lib and git easier. This means before I can even get started (or a contributor started) we need some unnecessary ceremony. The "Makefile.PL" is great for managing the dependencies of a project, but it can't recursively manage its own dependencies, which means that authors (NOT installers) will always need to install a few bits to get started working. My goal here is to reduce that effort, at least for my current workflow. Hopefully you will catch some useful ideas that work for you. Unlike most of the distributions in the Task::BeLike namespace, this is not a catchall of everything I love to use. This is a pretty minimum list, most of which have no or few dependencies with a very high rate of installation success. So if you want to be like me when starting a new project, this is it! Typically I assume a locally installed perl (which is probably installed via App::perlbrew) and nothing else when starting a project. I then bootstrap a local::lib managed local directory of the basic dependencies and go from there. I use the online version of App::cpanminus to get this rolling: curl http://cpanmin.us/ -L | perl - -l ~/mylocal Task::BeLike::JJNAPIORK After that, I open a command interpreter who's environment has been fixed up to find the local::lib which App::cpanminus has created: ~/mylocal/bin/localenv bash After that I will use the project "Makefile.PL" to install project level dependencies, start a new project, etc. MODULES INSTALLED This Task module installs the following App::Ack Awesome searching power. App::cpanminus Easier to install CPAN modules Module::Install Easier to manage your project dependencies. Module::Install::AuthorTests Mark some tests as author only. Module::Install::GithubMeta Add github repository stuff. Module::Install::AutoManifest Make and clean manifest files for me. Module::Install::ReadmePodFromPod Make the readme file I am always forgetting to do. Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod For when a text only README is desired. Module::Install::ManifestSkip Start you off with a sane MANIFEST.SKIP file. Module::Setup For when I am too lazy to make my own project skeletons App::local::lib::helper Make it easier to use local::lib AUTHOR John Napiorkowski " <<email@example.com"> > COPYRIGHT & LICENSE Copyright 2010, John Napiorkowski This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
