Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::DBOOK - A plugin bundle for distributions built by DBOOK


 pod_tests = 1
 installer = MakeMaker::Awesome
 MakeMaker::Awesome.test_file[] = t/*.t
 Git::GatherDir.exclude_filename[0] = bad_file
 Git::GatherDir.exclude_filename[1] = another_file


This is the plugin bundle that DBOOK uses. It is equivalent to:

 issues = 1
 user = Grinnz
 [ReadmeAnyFromPod / Readme_Github]
 type = pod
 filename = README.pod
 location = root
 phase = release
 [GenerateFile / Generate_Contrib]
 filename =
 content = ...
 directory = t
 directory = xt
 directory = inc
 directory = share
 directory = eg
 directory = examples
 allow_dirty = dist.ini
 allow_dirty = Changes
 allow_dirty = README.pod
 format = %-9v %{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss VVV}d%{ (TRIAL RELEASE)}T
 filename = INSTALL
 filename = LICENSE
 filename =
 filename = META.json
 filename = Makefile.PL
 add_files_in = /
 allow_dirty = dist.ini

 [Git::Commit / Commit_Version_Bump]

 plugin = Readme_Github
 plugin = CopyFilesFromRelease
 [ExecDir / ScriptDir]
 dir = script

This bundle assumes that your git repo has the following: a cpanfile, prereqs.json, or prereqs.yml with the dist's prereqs, a Changes populated for the current version (see Dist::Zilla::Plugin::NextRelease), and a .gitignore including /Name-Of-Dist-* but not Makefile.PL/Build.PL or META.json.

To faciliate building the distribution for testing or installation without Dist::Zilla, and provide important information about the distribution in the repository, several files can be copied to the repository from the build by running dzil regenerate, and are copied and committed automatically on release. These files are:, INSTALL, LICENSE, Makefile.PL/Build.PL, and META.json. The file README.pod will also be generated in the repository (but not the build) by dzil regenerate and dzil release.

To test releasing, set the env var FAKE_RELEASE=1 to run everything except the upload to CPAN.

 $ FAKE_RELEASE=1 dzil release


This bundle composes the Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::Config::Slicer role, so options for any included plugin may be specified in that format. It also composes Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::PluginRemover so that plugins may be removed. Additionally, the following options are provided.


 github_user = gitster

Set the user whose repository should be linked in metadata. Defaults to Grinnz, change this when the main repository is elsewhere. Set to an empty string value to use the GitHub remote URL as found in the local repository, as Dist::Zilla::Plugin::GithubMeta does by default.


 installer = MakeMaker::Awesome
 MakeMaker::Awesome.WriteMakefile_arg[] = (clean => { FILES => 'autogen.dat' })
 MakeMaker::Awesome.delimiter = |
 MakeMaker::Awesome.footer[00] = |{
 MakeMaker::Awesome.footer[01] = |  ...
 MakeMaker::Awesome.footer[20] = |}

 installer = ModuleBuildTiny
 ModuleBuildTiny.version_method = installed

Set the installer plugin to use. Allowed installers are MakeMaker, MakeMaker::Awesome, ModuleBuildTiny, and ModuleBuildTiny::Fallback. The default is MakeMaker. Options for the selected installer can be specified using config slicing.


 irc = irc://

Set the x_IRC resource metadata using Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaResources.


 pod_tests = 1

Set to a true value to add Dist::Zilla::Plugin::PodSyntaxTests and Dist::Zilla::Plugin::PodCoverageTests. Set to syntax to only add the syntax tests.


Report any issues on the public bugtracker.
