NAME

Perinci::Access::Lite - A lightweight Riap client library

VERSION

This document describes version 0.14 of Perinci::Access::Lite (from Perl distribution Perinci-Access-Lite), released on 2016-09-25.

DESCRIPTION

This module is a lightweight alternative to Perinci::Access. It has less prerequisites but does fewer things. The things it supports:

  • Local (in-process) access to Perl modules and functions

    Currently only call, meta, and list actions are implemented. Variables and other entities are not yet supported.

    The list action only gathers keys from %SPEC and do not yet list subpackages.

  • HTTP/HTTPS

  • HTTP over Unix socket

Differences with Perinci::Access:

  • For network access, uses HTTP::Tiny module family instead of LWP

    This results in fewer dependencies.

  • No wrapping, no argument checking

    For 'pl' or schemeless URL, no wrapping (Perinci::Sub::Wrapper) is done, only normalization (using Perinci::Sub::Normalize).

  • No transaction or logging support

  • No support for some schemes

    This includes: Riap::Simple over pipe/TCP socket.

ADDED RESULT METADATA

This class might add the following property/attribute in result metadata:

x.hint.result_binary => bool

If result's schema type is buf, then this class will set this attribute to true, to give hints to result formatters.

ATTRIBUTES

riap_version => float (default: 1.1)

METHODS

new(%attrs) => obj

$pa->request($action, $url, $extra) => hash
