Dist::Zilla::Role::MintingProfile - something that can find a minting profile dir


version 6.031


Plugins implementing this role should provide profile_dir method, which, given a minting profile name, returns its directory.

The minting profile is a directory, containing arbitrary files used during creation of new distribution. Among other things notably, it should contain the 'profile.ini' file, listing the plugins used for minter initialization.

The default implementation profile_dir looks in the module's ShareDir.

After installing your profile, users will be able to start a new distribution, based on your profile with the:

  $ dzil new -P Provider -p profile_name Distribution::Name


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
