NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaNoIndex - Stop CPAN from indexing stuff

VERSION

version 1.101550

SYNOPSIS

In your dist.ini:

  [MetaNoIndex]
  directory = t/author
  directory = examples
  file = lib/Foo.pm
  package = My::Module
  namespace = My::Module

DESCRIPTION

This plugin allows you to prevent PAUSE/CPAN from indexing files you don't want indexed. This is useful if you build test classes or example classes that are used for those purposes only, and are not part of the distribution. It does this by adding a no_index block to your META.yml file in your distribution.

ATTRIBUTES

directory

Exclude folders and everything in them. Example: author.t. Aliases: folder, dir, directories.

file

Exclude a specific file. Example: lib/Foo.pm. Alias: files.

package

Exclude by package name. Example: My::Package. Aliases: class, module, packages.

namespace

Exclude everything under a specific namespace. Example: My::Package. Alias: namespaces.

NOTE: This will not exclude the package My::Package, only everything under it like My::Package::Foo.

METHODS

metadata

Returns a reference to a hash containing the distribution's no_index metadata.
