App::Mi6 - minimal authoring tool for Perl6
> mi6 new Foo::Bar # create Foo-Bar distribution > mi6 build # build the distribution and re-generate README.md/META6.json > mi6 test # run tests > mi6 release # release your distribution to CPAN
> zef install App::Mi6
App::Mi6 is a minimal authoring tool for Perl6. Features are:
Create minimal distribution skeleton for Perl6
Generate README.md from lib/Main/Module.pm6's pod
Run tests by
Release your distribution tarball to CPAN
Can I customize mi6 behavior?
; dist.ini name = Your-Module-Name [ReadmeFromPod] ; if you want to disable generating README.md from main module's pod, then: ; enable = false ; ; if you want to change a file that generates README.md, then: ; filename = lib/Your/Tutorial.pod [PruneFiles] ; if you want to prune files when packaging, then ; filename = utils/tool.pl ; ; you can use Perl6 regular expressions ; match = ^ 'xt/' [MetaNoIndex] ; if you do not want to list some files in META6.json as "provides", then ; filename = lib/Should/Not/List/Provides.pm6
How can I manage depends, build-depends, test-depends?
Write them to META6.json directly :)
Where is the spec of META6.json?
See also The Meta spec, Distribution, and CompUnit::Repository explained-ish by ugexe.
What is the format of the .pause file?
Mi6 uses the .pause file in your home directory to determine the username. This is a flat text file, designed to be compatible with the .pause file used by the Perl5
cpan-upload module (https://metacpan.org/pod/cpan-upload). Note that this file only needs to contain the "user" and "password" directives. Unknown directives are ignored.
An example file could consist of only two lines:
user your_pause_username password your_pause_password
your_pause_username with your PAUSE username, and replace
your_pause_password with your PAUSE password.
This file can also be encrypted with GPG if you do not want to leave your PAUSE credentials in plain text.
