NAME

Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock - mock locale object

VERSION

This document describes Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock version 0.1

SYNOPSIS

    use Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock;
    my $lh = Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->get_handle();

DESCRIPTION

Often we need to create a class so we can do a Locale::Maketext[::Utils] testing but Locale::Maketext is not designed for direct use. Instead you need to create a class with a lexicon and at least the 'en' subclass of that.

This module does all the work for you and behaves like a typical Locale::Maketext::Utils object.

You can also add additional locales at will.

INTERFACE

get_handle()

Requires the Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock based locale handle.

init_mock_locales()

If you want more than 'en' you can initialize them using init_mock_locales();

It takes a list of locales tags, passes them through Locales::normalize_tag() and creates the subclass for each one that can be used to create a Locales object or that is an “i_” tag (e.g. i_yoda).

    use Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock ();
    Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->init_mock_locales('fr', 'it', 'en_gb');
    my $it = Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->get_handle('it'); # Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock::it object.
    my $ja = Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->get_handle('js'); # Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock::en object since there is no 'ja' subclass.

It can be called as a function, a class method, or object method.

It returns the number of subclasses successfully created.

create_method()

Takes a hashref whose keys are the methods to make for mocked objects.

The values are either a coderef for the method or undef. Undef will result in a coderef that returns “I am $key()”.

    use Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock ();
    Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->create_method({ method_x => undef, method_y => sub { return "YABBA DABBA $_[1]" } });
    my $lh = Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock->get_handle();
    print $lh->maketext("Blah [method_x] blah [method_y,_1] blah.", 42); $ Blah I am method_x() blah YABBA DABBA 42 blah.

DIAGNOSTICS

init_mock_locales() carp()s if there was a problem createing the subclass.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

Locale::Maketext::Utils::Mock requires no configuration files or environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES

Locale::Maketext::Utils

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

No bugs have been reported.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-locale-maketext-utils-mock@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.

TODO

Depending on need/demand:

1. Add a way to define lexicon for specifical locales.

2. ? ability to create object in it's own class (so subclass modification are separate) ?
