MooseX::MultiInitArg - Attributes with aliases for constructor arguments.
has 'data' => (
metaclass => 'MultiInitArg',
# For composability, you could use the following:
# traits => ['MooseX::MultiInitArg::Trait'],
is => 'ro',
isa => 'Str',
init_args => [qw(munge frobnicate)],
# All these are equivalent
my $foo = Thinger->new(data => 'foo');
my $foo = Thinger->new(munge => 'foo');
my $foo = Thinger->new(frobnicate => 'foo');
If you've ever wanted to be able to call an attribute any number of things while you're passing arguments to your object constructor, Now You Can.
The primary motivator is that I have some attributes that were named inconsistently, and I wanted to rename them without breaking backwards compatibility with my existing API.
