NAME

pinto - Curate a custom repository of Perl modules

VERSION

version 0.066

SYNOPSIS

  pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT [global options] COMMAND [command options] [args]

DESCRIPTION

pinto is a tool for creating and managing a custom CPAN-like repository of Perl modules. The purpose of such a repository is to provide a stable, curated stack of dependencies from which you can reliably build, test, and deploy your application using the standard Perl tool chain. pinto provides various commands for gathering and managing distribution dependencies within the repository, so that you can control precisely which dependencies go into your application.

IMPORTANT NOTE

pinto is just a front-end. To do anything useful, you'll also need to install one of the back-ends, which ship separately. If you need to create new repositories and/or work directly with repositories on the local disk, then install Pinto. If you already have a repository on a remote host that is running pintod, then install Pinto::Remote. If you're not sure what you need, then install Task::Pinto to get the whole kit.

COMMANDS

pinto supports several commands that perform various operations on your repository, or report information about your repository. To get a listing of all the available commands:

  $> pinto commands

Each command has its own options and arguments. To get a brief summary:

  $> pinto help COMMAND

To see the complete manual for a command:

  $> pinto manual COMMAND

GLOBAL OPTIONS

The following options are available for all commands.

--root DIRECTORY | URL
-r DIRECTORY | URL

Specifies the root of your repository. This is mandatory for (almost) all commands unless you've set the PINTO_REPOSITORY_ROOT environment variable to point to your repository. The root can be a path to a local directory, or the URL where a pintod server is listening.

--no-color
--no-colour

Do not colorize command output.

--password PASS
-p PASS

The password to use for server authentication. This is only relevant if using a remote repository. If the PASS is "-" then you will be prompted for a password.

--quiet
-q

Report only fatal errors. This option silently overrides the --verbose options. Also suppresses the progress meter.

--username NAME
-u NAME

The username to user for server authentication. This is only relevant if using a remote repository. Defaults to your current login.

--verbose
-v

Display more diagnostic messages. This switch can be repeated multiple times for greater effect. Diagnostic messages are always sent to STDERR.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The following environment variables influence the behavior of pinto:

PINTO_HOME

If you have installed pinto as a stand-alone application, then PINTO_HOME should point to the directory where you installed it. If PINTO_HOME is set at all, then it must point to a valid directory or pinto will throw an exception. Please see Pinto::Manual::Installing for details on stand-alone installations.

PINTO_REPOSITORY_ROOT

Sets the default path or URL of the pinto repository, if the --root is not specified. The --root is required for almost all commands. So if you usually only work with one repository, then setting this can save you quite a bit of typing.

PINTO_EDITOR

Sets the path to editor application that will be used to compose log messages. If not set, defaults to VISUAL or EDITOR. At least one of these variables must be defined.

PINTO_NO_COLOR
PINTO_NO_COLOUR

If set to a true value, suppresses color in all command output.

PINTO_COLORS
PINTO_COLOURS

A comma-separated list of exactly three color names. Any name supported by Term::ANSIColor is allowed. These will be the colors that pinto uses to colorize various output. For example:

  PINTO_COLORS='red, light blue, green on_white'

Listing too many or too few colors will cause an exception, as will using an invalid color name.

PINTO_USERNAME

Sets the default username when --username is not specified. This is only used for authentication with a pintod server. Defaults to your current shell username.

PINTO_AUTHOR_ID

Sets the default author identity when the --author option is not specified (currently, only used by the add) command. Defaults to your current shell username. By PAUSE convention, all author id's are forced to uppercase.

PINTO_PAGER

Sets the path to the pager application that will be used to paginate output from each command. Defaults to PAGER. If none of these are set, then no pager is used.

PINTO_DEBUG

If set to 1, pinto will emit more diagnostic messages to STDERR. If set to 2, pinto will emit even more diagnostic messages.
