Message::Passing::Role::Filter - Simple abstraction for filtering messages

SYNOPSIS

    package My::Filter;
    use Moo;
    use namespace::clean -except => 'meta';

    with 'Message::Passing::Role::Filter';

    sub filter {
        my ($self, $message) = @_;

DESCRIPTION

Both a producer and a consumer of messages, able to filter out messages based upon their contents, or permute the structure of messages.

REQUIRED METHODS

filter

Called to filter the message. Returns the mangled message.

Note if you return undef then the message is not propagated further up the chain, which may be used for filtering out unwanted messages.

REQUIRED ATTRIBUTES

output_to

From Message::Passing::Role::Input.

METHODS

consume

Consumers a message, calling the filter method provided by the user with the message.

In the case where the filter returns a message, outputs the message to the next step in the chain.
