Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::RWSTAUNER - RWSTAUNER's Dist::Zilla config


version 6.002


  # dist.ini



This is an Author Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle that I use for building my distributions.


Possible options and their default values:

  authority      = cpan:RWSTAUNER
  auto_prereqs   = 1  ; enable AutoPrereqs
  copy_files     =    ; space-separated list of additional files to copy from build
  fake_release   = 0  ; if true will use FakeRelease instead of 'releaser'
  install_command = cpanm -v -i . (passed to InstallRelease)
  is_task        = 0  ; set to true to use TaskWeaver instead of PodWeaver
  open_source    = 1  ; include plugins for cpan/meta/repo/xt/change log, etc
  placeholder_comments = 0 ; use '# VERSION' and '# AUTHORITY' comments
  releaser       = UploadToCPAN
  skip_plugins   =    ; default empty; a regexp of plugin names to exclude
  weaver_config  = @Author::RWSTAUNER

The fake_release option also respects $ENV{DZIL_FAKERELEASE}.

NOTE: This bundle consumes Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::Config::Slicer so you can also specify attributes for any of the bundled plugins. The option should be the plugin name and the attribute separated by a dot:

  AutoPrereqs.skip = Bad::Module

Note that this is different than

  skip = Bad::Module

which will load the plugin a second time. The first example actually alters the plugin configuration as it is included by the Bundle.

See "CONFIGURATION SYNTAX" in Config::MVP::Slicer for more information.

If your situation is more complicated you can use the -remove attribute (courtesy of Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::PluginRemover) to have the Bundle ignore that plugin and then you can add it yourself:

  directory = one-dir
  directory = another-dir
  -remove = MetaNoIndex

-remove can be specified multiple times.

Alternatively you can use the skip_plugins attribute (only once) which is a regular expression that matches plugin name or package.

  skip_plugins = MetaNoIndex|SomethingElse


This bundle is roughly equivalent to the following (generated) dist.ini:
