NAME

Dist::Zilla::Util::RoleDB::Entry - Extracted meta-data about a role

VERSION

version 0.001000

SYNOPSIS

    use Dist::Zilla::Util::RoleDB::Entry;
    my $entry = Dist::Zilla::Util::RoleDB::Entry->new(
        name => "-FileGatherer",
        description => "A thing that adds files to your dist"
    );

METHODS

is_phase

Returns false

require_module

Load the module itself.

Usually, this just amounts to requiring full_name, but it might not be in the case somebody has manually modified required_modules

ATTRIBUTES

name

Contains the short name for the role, in a form acceptable by Dist::Zilla's plugins_with method.

e.g:

    -FileGatherer

Because

    zilla->plugins_with(-FileGatherer)

full_name

Contains the fully qualified version of the role.

For instance, when name is -FileGatherer, full_name will be Dist::Zilla::Role::FileGatherer

required_modules

This contains an ArrayRef of Modules that are required if one ever intends to use the module in full_name.

Note, that this is not intended to be really used. It only exists as a helper in the event one wishes to document a roles existence in a file other than one matching its name.

For example:

    Foo.pm:

        package Foo;

        use Moose::Role;

        package Bar;

        use Moose::Role;

In such a scenario, one cannot get Bar without require Foo

So here,

    ->new( name => 'Foo' ); # required_modules is automatically [Foo]
    ->new( name => 'Bar', required_modules => ['Foo'] );

Also, if a role has peculiar load order requirements ( like seen in Class::MOP ) that means certain other libraries must be require'd before requireing the module itself, this would be a convenient place to put such information.

This mechanism is mostly to support $entry->require_module

description

Contains a textual description of the Role.

Usually, a copy of the Roles "ABSTRACT" will do the trick.

deprecated

If a role is deprecated, setting this may be useful.
