NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Authority - Add the $AUTHORITY variable and metadata to your distribution

VERSION

  This document describes v1.006 of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Authority - released January 02, 2012 as part of Dist-Zilla-Plugin-Authority.

DESCRIPTION

This plugin adds the authority data to your distribution. It adds the data to your modules and metadata. Normally it looks for the PAUSE author id in your Dist::Zilla configuration. If you want to override it, please use the 'authority' attribute.

        # In your dist.ini:
        [Authority]

This code will be added to any package declarations in your perl files:

        BEGIN {
          $Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Authority::AUTHORITY = 'cpan:APOCAL';
        }

Your metadata ( META.yml or META.json ) will have an entry looking like this:

        x_authority => 'cpan:APOCAL'

ATTRIBUTES

authority

The authority you want to use. It should be something like cpan:APOCAL.

Defaults to the username set in the %PAUSE stash in the global config.ini or dist.ini ( Dist::Zilla v4 addition! )

If you prefer to not put it in config/dist.ini you can put it in "~/.pause" just like Dist::Zilla did before v4.

do_metadata

A boolean value to control if the authority should be added to the metadata.

Defaults to true.

do_munging

A boolean value to control if the $AUTHORITY variable should be added to the modules.

Defaults to true.

locate_comment

A boolean value to control if the $AUTHORITY variable should be added where a # AUTHORITY comment is found. If this is set then an appropriate comment is found, and our $AUTHORITY = 'cpan:PAUSEID'; is inserted preceding the comment on the same line.

This basically implements what OurPkgVersion does for PkgVersion.

Defaults to false.
