Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Pinto::Add - Add your dist to a Pinto repository


version 0.028

# Then run the release command
dzil release


Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Pinto::Add is a release-stage plugin that will add your distribution to a local or remote Pinto repository.

IMPORTANT: You'll need to install Pinto, or Pinto::Remote, or both, depending on whether you're going to release to a local or remote repository. Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Pinto::Add does not explicitly depend on either of these modules, so you can decide which one you want without being forced to have a bunch of other modules that you won't use.

Before releasing, Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Pinto::Add will check if the repository is available. If not, you'll be prompted whether to abort the rest of the release.


The following parameters can be set in the dist.ini file for your distribution:

  • repos = REPOSITORY

This identifies the Pinto repository you want to release to. If REPOSITORY looks like a URL (i.e. starts with "http://") then your distribution will be shipped with Pinto::Remote. Otherwise, the REPOSITORY is assumed to be a path to a local repository directory. In that case, your distribution will be shipped with Pinto.

  • author = NAME

This specifies your identity as a module author. It must be alphanumeric characters (no spaces) and will be forced to UPPERCASE. If you do not specify one, it defaults to either your PAUSE ID (if you have one configured elsewhere) or your current username.
