NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git::GatherDir - gather all tracked files in a Git working directory

VERSION

version 1.121820

DESCRIPTION

This is a trivial variant of the GatherDir plugin. It looks in the directory named in the "root" attribute and adds all the Git tracked files it finds there (as determined by git ls-files). If the root begins with a tilde, the tilde is replaced with the current user's home directory according to File::HomeDir.

Most users just need:

  [Git::GatherDir]

...and this will pick up all tracked files from the current directory into the dist. You can use it multiple times, as you can any other plugin, by providing a plugin name. For example, if you want to include external specification files into a subdir of your dist, you might write:

  [Git::GatherDir]
  ; this plugin needs no config and gathers most of your files

  [Git::GatherDir / SpecFiles]
  ; this plugin gets all tracked files in the root dir and adds them under ./spec
  root   = ~/projects/my-project/spec
  prefix = spec

ATTRIBUTES

root

This is the directory in which to look for files. If not given, it defaults to the dist root -- generally, the place where your dist.ini or other configuration file is located.

prefix

This parameter can be set to gather all the files found under a common directory. See the description above for an example.

include_dotfiles

By default, files will not be included if they begin with a dot. This goes both for files and for directories relative to the root.

In almost all cases, the default value (false) is correct.

By default, directories that are symlinks will not be followed. Note on the other hand that in all followed directories, files which are symlinks are always gathered.

exclude_filename

To exclude certain files from being gathered, use the exclude_filename option. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple files to exclude.

exclude_match

This is just like exclude_filename but provides a regular expression pattern. Files matching the pattern are not gathered. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple patterns to exclude.
