Dist::Zilla::App::Command::authordeps - List your distribution's author dependencies


version 6.025


  $ dzil authordeps

This will scan the dist.ini file and print a list of plugin modules that probably need to be installed for the dist to be buildable. This is a very naive scan, but tends to be pretty accurate. Modules can be added to its results by using special comments in the form:

  ; authordep Some::Package

In order to add authordeps to all distributions that use a certain plugin bundle (or plugin), just list them as prereqs of that bundle (e.g.: using Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Prereqs ).


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
