Gideon::Manual - Gideon Manual
Gideon is a mapping layer between POMO ( Plain Old Moose Objects ) and your data sources such as databases, Non-SQL storage and more. It provides a common interface for your persisted objects no matter what the source is so you can concentrate on your model ( classes and their relationship ) instead of txeh code for accessing the data.
Gideon::Manual - What is Gideon, and how do I use it?
There are other projects that attempt to do a similar job but Gideon is different in the sense that the interface provided for your classes doesn't depend on the data source, folliwing the Data Mapper pattern by Martin Fowler. Gideon also tries very hard to cause as less impact as possible on your class design.
package Customer; use Gideon driver => 'DBI'; has id => ( is => 'rw', isa => 'Num', traits => [ 'Gideon::DBI::Column' ], primary_key => 1 ); has name => ( is => 'rw', isa => 'Str', traits => [ 'Gideon::DBI::Column' ], ); __PACKAGE__->meta->store('mydb:customers'); __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
As you can see this is a POMO with an extended meta definition and that's all that Gideon needs.
my $customer = Customer->find_one; $customer->remove; my @johns = Customer->find( name => 'john' );
