MooseX::App::Cmd - Mashes up MooseX::Getopt and App::Cmd.


See "SYNOPSIS" in App::Cmd.

    package YourApp::Cmd;
        use Moose;

    extends qw(MooseX::App::Cmd);

    package YourApp::Cmd::Command::blort;
    use Moose;

    extends qw(MooseX::App::Cmd::Command);

    has blortex => (
        isa => "Bool",
        is  => "rw",
        cmd_aliases   => "X",
        documentation => "use the blortext algorithm",

    has recheck => (
        isa => "Bool",
        is  => "rw",
        cmd_aliases => "r",
        documentation => "recheck all results",

    sub run {
        my ( $self, $opt, $args ) = @_;

        # you may ignore $opt, it's in the attributes anyway
        my $result = $self->blortex ? blortex() : blort();

        recheck($result) if $self->recheck;

        print $result;


This module marries App::Cmd with MooseX::Getopt.

Use it like App::Cmd advises (especially see App::Cmd::Tutorial), swapping App::Cmd::Command for MooseX::App::Cmd::Command.

Then you can write your moose commands as moose classes, with MooseX::Getopt defining the options for you instead of opt_spec returning a Getopt::Long::Descriptive spec.
