Dist::Zilla::Plugin::JSAN::ReadmeFromMD - build a README file


version 0.06


In your dist.ini:

  update_sources       = 1; this is a default


This plugin adds a file to the distribution, which just copy the markdown (or multi-markdown) documentation file of the main module.

By default it also modifies your sources and add the same file to the root of them. Its useful for GitHub, in which the README's content shows at the projects home page. You can disable this behavior with the update_sources option, by setting it to 0.

Of course, this plugins assumes, that your documentation is written in markdown and is already generated. Therefor it should be included *after* the [JSAN] plugin.

If this plugin can't find the documentation file it falls back to standard [README] plugin behavior
