Carton::Doc::Install - Install the dependencies
carton install [--deployment] [--cached] [--path=PATH] [--without develop]
Install the dependencies for your application. This command has two modes and the behavior is slightly different.
- carton install
If you run
carton installwithout any arguments and if cpanfile exists, carton will scan dependencies from cpanfile and install the modules.
If you run
carton install for the first time (i.e. cpanfile.snapshot does not exist), carton will fetch all the modules specified, resolve dependencies and install all required modules from CPAN.
If cpanfile.snapshot file does exist, carton will still try to install modules specified or updated in cpanfile, but uses cpanfile.snapshot for the dependency resolution, and then cascades to CPAN.
carton will analyze all the dependencies and their version information, and it is saved into cpanfile.snapshot file. It is important to add cpanfile.snapshot file into a version controlled repository and commit the changes as you update your dependencies.
If you specify the
--deployment command line option or the cpanfile.snapshot exists, carton will only use the dependencies specified in the cpanfile.snapshot instead of resolving dependencies.
Force the deployment mode. See "DEPLOYMENT MODE" above.
Locate distribution tarballs in
vendor/cacherather than fetching them from CPAN mirrors. This requires you to run
carton bundleprior to the deployment and commit or sync the content of
vendordirectory to the other host you run
Specify the alternate path for cpanfile. By default,
carton installwill look for the file
cpanfilein the current directory, then upwards till the root directory, in case the command runs from a sub directory.
Carton assumes the directory where your cpanfile (or altenate path) exists as a project root directory, and will look for the snapshot file as well as install directory (
vendor/cacherelative to it.
Specify the path to install modules to. Defaults to local in the directory relative to where
NOTE: this option, as of version 1.0, is not preserved across multiple runs of
carton installor other commands such as
carton exec. You can choose to set the path in
PERL_CARTON_PATHenvrionment variable to persist it across commands.
carton installwill install all the phases for dependencies, including
develop. You can specify phases or features to exclude, in the comma separated list.
carton install --deployment --without develop
--withoutfor the initial installation (without cpanfile.snapshot) is not supported at this moment.
