Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Pinto::Add - Ship your dist to a Pinto repository
# In your dist.ini [Pinto::Add] root = http://pinto.example.com ; optional. defaults to PINTO_REPOSITORY_ROOT author = YOU ; optional. defaults to PINTO_AUTHOR_ID stack = stack_name ; optional. defaults to repository setting recurse = 0 ; optional. defaults to repository setting pinto_exe = /path/to/pinto ; optional. defaults to searching PATH username = you ; optional. defaults to PINTO_USERNAME password = secret ; optional. will prompt if needed authenticate = 1 ; optional. defaults to 0 # Then run the release command dzil release
Before building the release, all repositories are checked for connectivity. If a repository is not responding you will be prompted to skip it or abort the entire release. If none of the repositories are responding, then the release will be aborted. Any errors encountered while shipping to the remaining repositories will also cause the rest of the release to abort.
IMPORTANT: You need to install Pinto to make this plugin work. It ships
separately so you can decide how you want to install it. Peronally, I
recommend installing Pinto as a stand-alone application as described in
Pinto::Manual::Installing and then setting the
variable accordingly. But you can also just install Pinto from CPAN using the
The following configuration parameters can be set in the
section of the
dist.ini file for your distribution. Defaults for most
paramters can be set via environment variables or via the repository
root = REPOSITORY
Specifies the root of the Pinto repository you want to ship to. It can be either a path to a local repository or a URI where pintod is listening. If not specified, it defaults to the
PINTO_REPOSITORY_ROOTenvironment variable. You can ship to multiple repositories by specifying the
rootparameter multiple times. See also "USING MULTIPLE REPOSITORIES".
authenticate = 0|1
Indicates that authentication is required for communicating with the repository. If true, you will be prompted for a
passwordunless it is provided as described below. Default is false.
author = NAME
Specifies your identity as a module author. It must be two or more alphanumeric characters and it will be forced to UPPERCASE. If not specified, it defaults to either the
PINTO_AUTHOR_IDenvironment variable, or else your PAUSE ID (if you have one configured in
~/.pause), or else the
password = PASSWORD
Specifies the password to use for authentication. If not specified, it defaults to the
PINTO_PASSWORDenvironment variable, or else you will be prompted to enter a password. If your repository does require authentication, then you must also set the
authenticateparameter to 1. For security reasons, I do not recommend putting your password in the
recurse = 0|1
If true, Pinto will recursively pull all the distributions required to satisfy the prerequisites for the distribution you are adding. If false, Pinto will add the distribution only. If not specified, the default behavior is determined by the repository configuration.
stack = NAME
Specifies which stack in the repository to put the released distribution into. If not specified, it defaults to the stack that is currently marked as the default within the repository.
username = NAME
Specifies the username for server authentication. If not specified, it defaults to the
PINTO_USERNAMEenvironment variable, or else your current shell login.
pinto_exe = PATH
Specifies the full path to your
pintoexecutable. If not specified, your
PATHwill be searched.
You can ship your distribution to multiple repositories by specifying multiple
root paramter multiple times in your
dist.ini file. In that case,
the remaining parameters (e.g.
apply to all the repositories.
However, the recommended way to release to multiple repositories is to have
[Pinto::Add / NAME] blocks in your
dist.ini file. This allows
you to set attributes for each repository independently (at the expense of
possibly having to duplicating some information).
