NAME

Ddt - Distribution Development Tool

SYNOPSIS

$ ddt --license-name=LGPL new Foo::Bar # create Foo-Bar distribution
$ cd Foo-Bar
$ ddt build        # build the distribution and re-generate
                   # README.md & META6.json
$ ddt -C test      # Run tests when files change

DESCRIPTION

Ddt is an authoring and distribution development tool for Perl6. It provides scaffolding for generating new distributions, packages, modules, grammers, classes and roles.

WARNING

This project is a technology preview. It may change at any point. The only API which can be considered stable up to the v1.0 is the command line interface.

USAGE

ddt [--license-name=«NAME»] new <module> -- Create new module
ddt build                                -- Build the distribution and
                                            update README.md
ddt [-C|--continues] test [<tests> …]    -- Run distribution tests
ddt release                              -- Make release
ddt hack <identity> [<dir>]              -- Checkout a Distribution and
                                            start hacking on it
ddt generate class <name>                -- Generate a class
ddt generate role <name>                 -- Generate a role
ddt generate package <name>              -- Generate a package
ddt generate grammar <name>              -- Generate a grammar
ddt generate module <name>               -- Generate a module
ddt generate test <name> [<description>] -- Generate stub test file
ddt [-v] deps distri                     -- Show all the modules used
ddt [-u|--update] deps                   -- Update META6.json dependencies
ddt watch [<cmd>…]                       -- Watch lib/, bin/ & t/ for
                                            changes respecting .gitignore
                                            and execute given cmd

FAQ

  • How can I manage depends, build-depends, test-depends?

Use ddt -u deps

  • Where is the spec of META6.json?

Maybe https://github.com/perl6/ecosystem/blob/master/spec.pod or http://design.perl6.org/S22.html
