Description

"I'm just a attribute with a trigger", when you...

    use MooX::VariantAttribute;

Magically a role is added..

    with 'MooX::VariantAttribute::Role';

MooX::VariantAttribute::Role is a Moo::Role that contains the variant attributes *trigger* logic.

variant

Multiple variant attributes can be declared, they are read in as a list. Each will be transformed into a Moo Attribute with a trigger.

    variant 'one' => (
        given => Str,
        when => [
            one => { run => sub { return 'one' } },
        ],
    );
        
    .....

    has one => (
        is => 'rw',
        trigger => sub {
            return $_[0]->_given_when($_[1], $spec{given}, $spec{when}, $name);
        }
    );

By default variants are read-write, You can optionally set a variant to be read-only the normal way.

    variant 'one' => (
        is => 'ro',
        ...
    )

    my $foo = Backwards::World->new( one => 'world' );

Variants should always have two key/value pairs, given and when, given accepts a code reference or Type::Tiny object. When the code reference is called two parameters are passed the first $self the second the $new value. Type::Tiny objects are called with the $new value.

    given => sub { my $self = shift; ref $_[1] },

When is well when it gets more complicated. *when* should always be an array reference of pairs. The first value is the *matching* value it can be a SCALAR, ARRAY, HASH maybe even a Object. The second value has to be a hash reference with two optional keys run and alias. run should always be a code reference it will be passed $self, the $value returned from given, and the $new value.

    package Backwards::World;
    use Moo;
    use MooX::VariantAttribute;
    use Types::Standard qw/Any/;

    variant hello => (
        given => Any,
        when => [
            { one => 'two' } => {
                run => sub { return keys %{ $_[2] } },
            },
            { three => 'four' } => {
                run => sub { return values %{ $_[2] } },
            },
            [ qw/five six/ ] => {
                run => sub { return $_[2]->[1] },
            },
            seven => {
                run => sub { return $_[0]->hello({ one => 'two' }) },
            }
        ],
    );

    $object = Backwards::World->new( hello => 'one' );

    $object->hello # one;

    $object->hello({ three => 'four' }); # four;
    $object->hello, # four;

    $object->hello([ qw/five six/ ]), # six;
    $object->hello, # six;

    $object->hello('seven'), # one;
    $object->hello, # one;
