NAME

Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native - Extend your attribute interfaces

SYNOPSIS

  package MyClass;
  use Moose;

  has 'mapping' => (
      traits    => [ 'Hash' ],
      is        => 'rw',
      isa       => 'HashRef[Str]',
      default   => sub { {} },
      handles   => {
          exists_in_mapping => 'exists',
          ids_in_mapping    => 'keys',
          get_mapping       => 'get',
          set_mapping       => 'set',
          set_quantity      => [ set => 'quantity' ],
      },
  );


  # ...

  my $obj = MyClass->new;
  $obj->set_quantity(10);      # quantity => 10
  $obj->set_mapping('foo', 4); # foo => 4
  $obj->set_mapping('bar', 5); # bar => 5
  $obj->set_mapping('baz', 6); # baz => 6


  # prints 5
  print $obj->get_mapping('bar') if $obj->exists_in_mapping('bar');

  # prints 'quantity, foo, bar, baz'
  print join ', ', $obj->ids_in_mapping;

DESCRIPTION

While Moose attributes provide a way to name your accessors, readers, writers, clearers and predicates, this set of traits provides commonly used attribute helper methods for more specific types of data.

As seen in the "SYNOPSIS", you specify the data structure via the trait parameter. Available traits are below; see "METHOD PROVIDERS".

This module used to exist as the MooseX::AttributeHelpers extension. It was very commonly used, so we moved it into core Moose. Since this gave us a chance to change the interface, you will have to change your code or continue using the MooseX::AttributeHelpers extension. MooseX::AttributeHelpers should continue to work.

PARAMETERS

handles

This is like handles in "has" in Moose, but only HASH references are allowed. Keys are method names that you want installed locally, and values are methods from the method providers (below). Currying with delegated methods works normally for handles.

METHOD PROVIDERS

Number

Common numerical operations.

    has 'integer' => (
        traits    => ['Number'],
        is        => 'ro',
        isa       => 'Int',
        default   => 5,
        handles   => {
            set => 'set',
            add => 'add',
            sub => 'sub',
            mul => 'mul',
            div => 'div',
            mod => 'mod',
            abs => 'abs',
        }
    );
String

Common methods for string operations.

    has 'text' => (
        traits    => ['String'],
        is        => 'rw',
        isa       => 'Str',
        default   => q{},
        handles   => {
            add_text     => 'append',
            replace_text => 'replace',
        }
    );
Counter

Methods for incrementing and decrementing a counter attribute.

    has 'counter' => (
        traits    => ['Counter'],
        is        => 'ro',
        isa       => 'Num',
        default   => 0,
        handles   => {
            inc_counter   => 'inc',
            dec_counter   => 'dec',
            reset_counter => 'reset',
        }
    );
Bool

Common methods for boolean values.

    has 'is_lit' => (
        traits    => ['Bool'],
        is        => 'rw',
        isa       => 'Bool',
        default   => 0,
        handles   => {
            illuminate  => 'set',
            darken      => 'unset',
            flip_switch => 'toggle',
            is_dark     => 'not',
        }
    );
Hash

Common methods for hash references.

    has 'options' => (
        traits    => ['Hash'],
        is        => 'ro',
        isa       => 'HashRef[Str]',
        default   => sub { {} },
        handles   => {
            set_option => 'set',
            get_option => 'get',
            has_option => 'exists',
        }
    );
Array

Common methods for array references.

    has 'queue' => (
       traits     => ['Array'],
       is         => 'ro',
       isa        => 'ArrayRef[Str]',
       default    => sub { [] },
       handles    => {
           add_item  => 'push',
           next_item => 'shift',
       }
    );
Code

Common methods for code references.

    has 'callback' => (
       traits     => ['Code'],
       is         => 'ro',
       isa        => 'CodeRef',
       default    => sub { sub { 'called' } },
       handles    => {
           call => 'execute',
       }
    );

BUGS

All complex software has bugs lurking in it, and this module is no exception. If you find a bug please either email me, or add the bug to cpan-RT.
