Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git::CommitBuild - Check in build results on separate branch
In your dist.ini:
[Git::CommitBuild] ; these are the defaults branch = build/%b message = Build results of %h (on %b) multiple_inheritance = 0
Once the build is done, this plugin will commit the results of the build to a branch that is completely separate from your regular code branches (i.e. with a different root commit). This potentially makes your repository more useful to those who may not have Dist::Zilla and all of its dependencies installed.
The plugin accepts the following options:
branch - String::Formatter string for where to commit the build contents.
A single formatting code (
%b) is defined for this attribute and will be substituted with the name of the current branch in your git repository.
build/%b, but if set explicitly to an empty string causes no build contents checkin to be made.
release_branch - String::Formatter string for where to commit the build contents
branch, but commit the build content only after a release. No default, meaning no release branch.
message - String::Formatter string for what commit message to use when committing the results of the build.
This option supports five formatting codes:
%b- Name of the current branch
%H- Commit hash
%h- Abbreviated commit hash
%v- The release version number
%t- The string "-TRIAL" if this is a trial release
release_message - String::Formatter string for what commit message to use when committing the results of the release.
Defaults to the same as
multiple_inheritance - Indicates whether the commit containing the build results should have the source commit as a parent.
If false (the default), the build branch will be completely separate from the regular code branches. If set to a true value, commits on a build branch will have two parents: the previous build commit and the source commit from which the build was generated.
