Dist::Zilla::MintingProfile::Starter - A minimal Dist::Zilla minting profile
# setup only needs to be run once to set up your dzil config $ dzil setup $ dzil new -P Starter My::New::Dist
This minting profile for
dzil new creates a minimal new distribution consisting of a basic
dist.ini using the [@Starter] plugin bundle, and a skeleton for the main module and its documentation. The author, license, and copyright will be populated in the
dist.ini and documentation from the current dzil
config.ini, which can be initialized using
dzil setup. The version is initialized statically as
It's easy to create your own local version of this (or any other) minting profile which you can customize as you choose. First create a new directory in
profiles in your dzil configuration folder:
$ mkdir -p ~/.dzil/profiles/myminter
Then, copy the contents from the profile you want (such as the
profiles/default directory of this distribution). Modify the copied files to your liking, and then you can use it to mint a distribution.
$ dzil new -p myminter My::New::Dist
You can also specify a default provider (
-P option) or profile (
-p option) in your dzil config (
; config.ini [%Mint] profile = myminter ; or [%Mint] provider = Starter $ dzil new My::New::Dist # now defaults to the specified provider and/or profile
If no provider or profile is configured or specified,
dzil new will use the
default local profile, or the default
[@Basic] profile shipped with Dist::Zilla.
