Tangram::Core - import core Tangram modules


   use Tangram::Core;

   # use additional types, e.g.:
   use Tangram::Type::Array::FromMany;
   use Tangram::Type::Set::FromOne;


This module imports only the parts of Tangram that are thought to be essential to any app. This includes: Schema, Storage, Cursor, Expr, Scalar and Ref. None of the modules that map collections (Array, Hash, Set and their intrusive variants) are imported. Neither is Deploy.

Tangram::Core allows you to reduce script startup time (and executable size when perlcc can handle Tangram) by importing only what you really need. It also makes it possible to add new mappings to Tangram without penalizing apps that don't need them.
