NAME

Dist::Zilla::Role::RepoFileInjector - Create files outside the build directory

VERSION

version 0.009

SYNOPSIS

In your dist.ini:

    [MyPlugin]

And in your plugin:

    package Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MyPlugin;
    use Moose;
    with 'Dist::Zilla::Role::RepoFileInjector';

    sub some_method {
        ...
        $self->add_repo_file(Dist::Zilla::File::InMemory->new(...));
    }

    sub some_other_method {
        ...
        $self->write_repo_files;
    }

DESCRIPTION

This role is to be consumed by any plugin that plans to create files outside the distribution.

ATTRIBUTES

repo_root

A string indicating the base directory where the file(s) are written, when relative paths are provided. Defaults to "root" in Dist::Zilla.

This attribute is available as an option of your plugin in dist.ini.

allow_overwrite

A boolean indicating whether it is permissible for the file to already exist (whereupon it is overwritten). When false, a fatal exception is thrown when the file already exists.

Defaults to true.

This attribute is available as an option of your plugin in dist.ini.

METHODS

add_repo_file

    $plugin->add_repo_file($dzil_file);

Registers a file object to be written to disk. If the path is not absolute, it is treated as relative to repo_root. The file should consume the Dist::Zilla::Role::File role. Normally the consuming plugin would call this in the FileGatherer phase.

write_repo_files

    $plugin->write_repo_files;

Writes out all files registered previously with add_repo_file. Your plugin should normally do this during either the AfterBuild or AfterRelease phase, e.g.:

    sub after_build
    {
        my $self = shift;
        $self->write_repo_files;
    }

_repo_files

Returns the list of files added via add_repo_file. Normally the consuming plugin would call this in the FileMunger phase.
