Dist::Zilla::Role::BundleDeps - Automatically add all plugins in a bundle as dependencies


version 0.002001


    package blahblahblah;
    use Moose;
    with 'Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle';
    with 'Dist::Zilla::Role::BundleDeps';

Dependencies appear now for all plugins returned.


This role attempts to solve the problem of communicating dependencies to META.* from bundles in a different way.

My first attempt was [Prereqs::Plugins], which added all values that are seen in the dist.ini to dependencies.

However, that was inherently limited, as the :version specifier is lost before the plugins appear on $zilla->plugins

This Role however, can see any declarations of :version your bundle advertises, by standing between your bundle_config method and Dist::Zilla



This method provides the HashRef of defaults to use for the generated Prereqs section.

Because this role is intended to advertise Plugin Bundle dependencies, and because those dependencies will be "develop" dependencies everywhere other than the bundle itself, our defaults are:

        -phase        => develop,
        -relationship => requires,

These can be overridden when consuming a bundle in dist.ini

    bundledeps_phase = runtime
    bundledeps_relationship = requires


If you bundle plugins with your bundle, and use those plugins in the bundle, you'll risk a self-reference problem, which may be solved in a future release of Dist::Zilla.

Until then, you'll need to possibly use [RemovePrereqs] to trim self-references.
