NAME

MooseX::Types::LoadableClass - ClassName type constraint with coercion to load the class.

VERSION

version 0.015

SYNOPSIS

package MyClass;
use Moose;
use MooseX::Types::LoadableClass qw/ LoadableClass /;

has foobar_class => (
    is => 'ro',
    required => 1,
    isa => LoadableClass,
);

MyClass->new(foobar_class => 'FooBar'); # FooBar.pm is loaded or an
                                        # exception is thrown.

DESCRIPTION

use Moose::Util::TypeConstraints;

my $tc = subtype as ClassName;
coerce $tc, from Str, via { Class::Load::load_class($_); $_ };

I've written those three lines of code quite a lot of times, in quite a lot of places.

Now I don't have to.

TYPES EXPORTED

LoadableClass

A normal class / package.
