Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new - mint a new dist


version 4.300036


Creates a new Dist-Zilla based distribution under the current directory.

  $ dzil new Main::Module::Name

There are two arguments, -p and -P. -P specify the minting profile provider and -p - the profile name.

The default profile provider first looks in the ~/.dzil/profiles/$profile_name and then among standard profiles, shipped with Dist::Zilla. For example:

  $ dzil new -p work Corporate::Library

This command would instruct dzil to look in ~/.dzil/profiles/work for a profile.ini (or other "profile" config file). If no profile name is given, dzil will look for the default profile. If no default directory exists, it will use a very simple configuration shipped with Dist::Zilla.

  $ dzil new -P Foo Corporate::Library

This command would instruct dzil to consult the Foo provider about the directory of 'default' profile.
