NAME

App::git::ship - Git command for shipping your project

VERSION

0.33

SYNOPSIS

See "SYNOPSIS" in App::git::ship::perl for how to build Perl projects.

Below is a list of useful git aliases:

  # git build
  $ git config --global alias.build 'ship build'

  # git cl
  $ git config --global alias.cl 'ship clean'

  # git start
  # git start My/Project.pm
  $ git config --global alias.start 'ship start'

DESCRIPTION

App::git::ship is a git command for building and shipping your project.

The main focus is to automate away the boring steps, but at the same time not get in your (or any random contributor's) way. Problems should be solved with sane defaults according to standard rules instead of enforcing more rules.

App::git::ship differs from other tools like dzil by NOT requiring any configuration except for a file containing the credentials for uploading to CPAN.

Supported project types

Currently, only App::git::ship::perl is supported.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

Environment variables can also be set in a config file named .ship.conf, in the root of the project directory. The format is:

  # some comment
  bugtracker = whatever
  new_version_format = %v %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%z

Any of the keys are the lower case version of "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES", but without the "GIT_SHIP_" prefix.

Note however that all environment variables are optional, and in many cases App::git::ship will simply do the right thing, without any configuration.

GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP

It is possible to add hooks. These hooks are programs that runs in your shell. Example hooks:

  GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP="bash script/new-release.sh"
  GIT_SHIP_AFTER_BUILD="rm -r lib/My/App/templates lib/My/App/public"
  GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP="cat Changes | mail -s "Changes for My::App" all@my-app.com"

GIT_SHIP_AFTER_BUILD

See "GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP".

GIT_SHIP_BEFORE_BUILD

See "GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP".

GIT_SHIP_BEFORE_SHIP

See "GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP".

GIT_SHIP_BUGTRACKER

URL to the bugtracker for this project.

GIT_SHIP_CLASS

This class is used to build the object that runs all the actions on your project. This is autodetected by looking at the structure and files in your project. For now this value can be App::git::ship or App::git::ship::perl, but any customization is allowed.

GIT_SHIP_CONTRIBUTORS

Comma-separated list with name <email> of the contributors to this project.

GIT_SHIP_DEBUG

Setting this variable will make "git ship" output more information.

GIT_SHIP_HOMEPAGE

URL to the home page for this project.

GIT_SHIP_LICENSE

The name of the license to use. Defaults to "artistic_2".

GIT_SHIP_SILENT

Setting this variable will make "git ship" output less information.

METHODS

These methods are interesting in case you want to extend App::git::ship with your own functionality. App::git::ship::perl does exactly this.

abort

  $ship->abort($str);
  $ship->abort($format, @args);

Will abort the application run with an error message.

build

  $ship->build;

This method builds the project. The default behavior is to "abort". Needs to be overridden in the subclass.

can_handle_project

  $bool = $class->can_handle_project($file);

This method is called by "detect" in App::git::ship and should return boolean true if this module can handle the given git project.

This is a class method which gets a file as input to detect or have to auto-detect from current working directory.

All the modules in the App::git::ship namespace will be loaded and asked if they can handle the given project you are in or trying to create.

config

  $hash_ref = $ship->config;
  $str      = $ship->config($name);
  $self     = $ship->config($name => $value);

Holds the configuration from end user. The config is by default read from .ship.conf in the root of your project if such a file exists. "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES" can also be used to build the config, but the settings in .ship.conf has priority.

detect

  $class = $ship->detect;
  $class = $ship->detect($file);

Will detect the sub class in the App::git::ship::perl namespace which can be used to handle a project. Will first check "GIT_SHIP_CLASS" or call "can_handle_project" on all the classes in the App::git::ship::perl namespace if not.

dump

  $str = $ship->dump($any);

Will serialize $any into a perl data structure, using Data::Dumper.

new

  $ship = App::git::ship->new(\%attributes);

Creates a new instance of $class.

render_template

  $ship->render_template($file, \%args);

Used to render a template by the name $file to a $file. The template needs to be defined in the DATA section of the current class or one of the super classes.

run_hook

  $ship->run_hook($name);

Used to run a hook before or after an event. The hook is a command which needs to be defined in "config". See also "GIT_SHIP_AFTER_BUILD", "GIT_SHIP_AFTER_SHIP", "GIT_SHIP_BEFORE_BUILD" and "GIT_SHIP_BEFORE_SHIP".

ship

  $ship->ship;

This method ships the project to some online repository. The default behavior is to make a new tag and push it to "origin". Push occurs only if origin is defined in git.

start

  $ship->start;

This method is called when initializing the project. The default behavior is to populate "config" with default data:

system

  $ship->system($program, @args);

Same as perl's system(), but provides error handling and logging.
