NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides - Generating and Populating 'provides' in your META.yml

VERSION

version 2.000000

SYNOPSIS

In your projects dist.ini

[MetaProvides::Class]
inherit_version = 0    ;optional flag
inherit_missing = 0    ;optional flag
meta_noindex    = 1    ;optional flag

[MetaProvides::Package]
inherit_version = 0    ;optional flag
inherit_missing = 0    ;optional flag
meta_noindex    = 1    ;optional flag

[MetaProvides::FromFile]
inherit_version = 0     ;optional flag
inherit_missing = 0     ;optional flag
file = some_file.ini    ;mandatory flag
reader_name = Config::INI::Reader ;optional flag
meta_noindex    = 1     ;optional and useless flag

And then in some_file.ini

[Imaginary::Package]
file = lib/Imaginary/Package.pm ;mandatory flag
version = 3.1415                ;optional flag, subject to rules in dist.ini

DESCRIPTION

This Distribution Contains a small bundle of plugins for various ways of populating the META.yml that is built with your distribution.

The initial reason for this is due to stuff that uses MooseX::Declare style class definitions not being parseable by many tools upstream, so this is here to cover this problem by defining it in the metadata.

{ "namespace":"Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides" }

COMPONENT SUMMARY

::Class

Scans Dist::Zilla's .pm files and tries to identify classes using Class::Discover.

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides::Class

::Package

Scans Dist::Zilla's .pm files and tries to identify more traditional packages using a combination of Module::Extract::VERSION and Module::Extact::Namespaces.

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides::Package

::FromFile

In the event both of the above don't work for your needs, pull in hand-crafted metadata from a specified file.

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides::FromFile

OPTION SUMMARY

inherit_version

At the time this plugin runs to collect metadata from files, the mungers won't have run yet to inject custom versions into files in the various locations.

If you want the versions reported in the provides list to be consistent with the ones actually in the files, you will need to use this option in its enabled state.

IE: Generally, if you are using version munging, you WILL want this flag set to 1.

values

  • '0'

    Do not inherit version from Dist::Zilla

  • '1' [default]

    Inherit version from Dist::Zilla

"inherit_version" in Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaProvider::Provider

inherit_missing

If for whatever reason you want to actually use the versions found in the modules where present, and fall back to the value from Dist::Zilla.

inherit_version will need to be turned off (0) for this to be effective.

values

  • '0'

    Do not inherit version from Dist::Zilla when one is missing.

  • '1' [default]

    Inherit version from Dist::Zilla when one is missing.

"inhert_missing" in Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaProvider::Provider

meta_noindex

This dictates how to behave when a discovered class is also present in the no_index META field.

values

  • '0' [default]

    no_index META field will be ignored

  • '1'

    no_index META field will be recognised and things found in it will cause respective packages to not be provided in the metadata.

file

( Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides::FromFile )

This is a mandatory parameter that points to the file that contains manually ( or otherwise ) crafted metadata to be integrated into your final META.yml

File Must exist.

reader_name

( Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides::FromFile )

This parameter is by default Config::INI::Reader, but it can be in fact anything that meets the following criteria.

  • Can be initialized an instance of
  • has a read_file method on the instance
  • read_file can take the parameter 'file'
  • read_file can return a hashref matching the following structure

    { 'Package::Name' => {
        'file' => '/path/to/file',
        'version' => 0.1,
    }}
