NAME

EPublisher - Publish documents in new format

VERSION

version 1.2

SYNOPSIS

  use EPublisher;
  
  my $yaml     = './test.yml';
  my @projects = qw(Test);
  
  my $deploy   = EPublisher->new;
  $deploy->config( $yaml );
  $deploy->run( \@projects );

The correspondend YAML file:

  ---
  Test:
    source:
      type: Module
      path: YAML::Tiny
    target:
      type: Text
      path: C:\anything\YAML_Tiny.txt

DESCRIPTION

This tool aims to simplify publishing of documents, mainly POD. To be extendable, it uses a simple plugin system. It uses YAML files for configuration (see YAML::Tiny) and many CPAN modules for this task.

You can write your own plugins for your favourite source format (see EPublisher::Source::Base) and/or a plugin for your favourite output format.

Sources

"Sources" are input sources of the POD. In this base package there are three source plugins:

  • Dir

    Get all *.pm and *.pod files in the given directory and its subdirectories. See EPublisher::Source::Plugin::Dir.

  • File

    The Pod will be extracted from the given file.

  • Module

    This tool will try to get the POD off the module (without loading the module).

EPublisher::Source::Base describes how you can write your own Source-Plugin.

Targets

"Targets" are output formats. Currently there are two formats supported, but other target plugins will follow.

  • Text

    converts POD to plain text.

EPublisher::Target::Base describes how you can write your own Target-Plugin.

All methods available for EPublisher are described in the subsequent sections

PSEUDO PROTOCOL

There is a small "pseudo" protocol for the debug messages:

  100 start running source
  101 stop running source (success)
  102 error
  
  200 start running target plugin
  201 stop running target plugin (success)
  202 error
  203 info from target plugin
