NAME

Vim::Helper::Plugin - Base class and API for writing new plugins

DESCRIPTION

This package acts as a base class for all plugins. It also provides an API for writing new plugins quickly and efficiently. When you use Vim::Helper::Plugin it automatically sets itself as a base class on your class.

SYNOPSIS

    package Vim::Helper::MyPlugin;
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    
    # Load the plugin base class, and specify our configuration options.
    # A read/write accessor will be generated for every config option added.
    # If a default is specified it will be used when no option is provided.
    # Defaults can be wrapped in a sub if they need ot be generated per
    # instance.
    # If required is specified, the program will crash if the config does not
    # specify the option.
    use Vim::Helper::Plugin(
        config_option_foo => { default => 'foo'           },
        config_option_bar => { default => sub {[ 'bar' ]} },
        config_option_baz => { required => 1              },
    );

    #########################
    # Override some methods:
    
    # args and opts, each key must be a valid key for the type in Declare::CLI.
    # An additional key of 'help' is accepted for use in the 'help' command.
    # Both of these are optional, no need to override them
    sub args {{ key => %CONFIG }}
    sub opts {{ key => %CONFIG }}

    # VIMRC content (if we have any, otherwise do not override)
    sub vimrc {
        my $self = shift;
        my ( $helper, $opts ) = @_;
        my $cmd = $helper->command( $opts );

        ...

        return $VIMRC_CONTENT;
    }

    #########################
    # Add our own methods:
    sub do_something {
        my $self = shift;
        ...
    }
    
    1;

METHODS

$args = $CLASS->args()

Get the hashref of args provided by this plugin.

$opts = $CLASS->opts()

Get the hashref of opts provided by this plugin.

$obj = $CLASS->new()

Create a new instance.

$vimrc = $obj->vimrc( $helper, $opts )

Generate the vimrc content for this plugin.

$obj->config( { key => 'value', ... } )

You probably should not override this unless you REALLY want to change how your classes configuration function behaves.

For each key it will set the proper accessor. If a required key is omitted an error is thrown. If a key is invalid an error will be thrown.
