NAME

Dist::Zilla::Role::ModuleMetadata - A role for plugins that use Module::Metadata

VERSION

version 0.006

SYNOPSIS

    package Dist::Zilla::Plugin::YourNewPlugin;
    use Moose;
    with
        'Dist::Zilla::Role::...',
        'Dist::Zilla::Role::ModuleMetadata';
    use namespace::autoclean;

    sub your_method {
        my $self = shift;

        my $file = ...; # perhaps via the :InstallModules filefinder?
        my $version = $self->module_metadata_for_file->($file, collect_pod => 1)->version;
        ...
    }

DESCRIPTION

This role provides some common utilities for Dist::Zilla plugins which use Module::Metadata and the information that it provides.

METHODS PROVIDED

module_metadata_for_file

    my $mmd = $self->module_metadata_for_file($file, @options);

Given a dzil file object (anything that does Dist::Zilla::Role::File), this method returns a Module::Metadata object for that file's content. Any extra arguments are passed along to "new_from_handle" in Module::Metadata.

Internally, this method caches these objects. If multiple plugins want an object for the same file, this avoids reparsing it.
