App::CPANTS::Lint - front-end to Module::CPANTS::Analyse
my $app = App::CPANTS::Lint->new(verbose => 1);
$app->lint('path/to/Foo-Dist-1.42.tgz') or print $app->report;
# if you need raw data
$app->lint('path/to/Foo-Dist-1.42.tgz') or return $app->result;
# if you need to look at the details of analysis
App::CPANTS::Lint is a core of cpants_lint.pl script to check the Kwalitee of a distribution. See the script for casual usage. You can also use this from other modules for finer control.
Takes an optional hash (which will be passed into Module::CPANTS::Analyse internally) and creates a linter object.
Available options are:
Makes Module::CPANTS::Analyse verbose. False by default.
If true, the lint method (see below) returns true even if extra metrics (as well as experimental metrics) fail. This may be useful if you only care Kwalitee rankings. False by default.
If true, failed experimental metrics are also reported (via report method). False by default. Note that experimental metrics are not taken into account while calculating a score.
If true, output_report method writes to a file instead of writing to STDOUT.
If true, report method returns a formatted dump of the stash (see below).
If you'd like to use extra metrics modules, pass a reference to an array of their parent namespace(s) to search. Metrics modules under Module::CPANTS::Kwalitee namespace are always used.
Takes a path to a distribution tarball and analyses it. Returns true if the distribution has no significant issues (experimental metrics are always ignored). Otherwise, returns false.
Note that the result doesn't always match with what is shown at the CPANTS website, because there are metrics that are only available at the site for various reasons (some of them require database connection, and some are not portable enough).
Returns a report string that contains the details of failed metrics (even if lint method returns true) and a Kwalitee score.
If dump (or yaml, json) is set when you create an App::CPANTS::Lint object, report returns a formatted dump of the stash.
Returns a reference to a hash that contains the details of failed metrics and a Kwalitee score. Internal structure may change without notice, but it always has an "ok" field (which holds a return value of lint method) at least.
Returns a reference to a hash that contains the details of analysis (stored in a stash in Module::CPANTS::Analyse). Internal structure may change without notice, but it always has a "kwalitee" field (which holds a reference to a hash that contains the result of each metric) at least.
Returns a Kwalitee score.
Writes a report to STDOUT (or to a file).
Returns a path to a report file, which should have the same distribution name with a version, plus an extension appropriate to the output format. (eg. Foo-Bar-1.42.txt, Foo-Bar-1.42.yml etc)
