NAME

MooseX::LazyRequire - Required attributes which fail only when trying to use them

SYNOPSIS

    package Foo;

    use Moose;
    use MooseX::LazyRequire;

    has foo => (
        is            => 'ro',
        lazy_required => 1,
    );

    has bar => (
        is      => 'ro',
        builder => '_build_bar',
    );

    sub _build_bar { shift->foo }


    Foo->new(foo => 42); # succeeds, foo and bar will be 42
    Foo->new(bar => 42); # succeeds, bar will be 42
    Foo->new;            # fails, neither foo nor bare were given

DESCRIPTION

This module adds a lazy_required option to Moose attribute declarations.

The reader methods for all attributes with that option will throw an exception unless a value for the attributes was provided earlier by a constructor parameter or through a writer method.

CAVEATS

Prior to Moose 1.9900, roles didn't have an attribute metaclass, so this module can't easily apply its magic to attributes defined in roles. If you want to use lazy_required in role attributes, you'll have to apply the attribute trait yourself:

    has foo => (
        traits        => ['LazyRequire'],
        is            => 'ro',
        lazy_required => 1,
    );

With Moose 1.9900, you can use this module in roles just the same way you can in classes.
