=head1 NAME

Git::Database::Role::Backend - Abstract role for a Git database backend

=head1 VERSION

version 0.012

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    package MyGitBackend;

    use Moo;
    use namespace::clean;

    with 'Git::Database::Role::Backend';

    1;

=head1 DESCRIPTION

The C<Git::Database::Role::Backend> role encapsulate code for the user-facing
store objects. To be usable as a L<backend|Git::Repository::Tutorial/backend>,
a class must at least do this role.

=head1 REQUIRED ATTRIBUTES

=head2 store

The L<store|Git::Database::Tutorial/store> that will store and retrieve
data from the Git repository.

There is a C<has_store> predicate method for this attribute.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 hash_object

    # the empty tree
    my $tree = Git::Database::Object::Tree->new( content => '' );
    
    # 4b825dc642cb6eb9a060e54bf8d69288fbee4904
    my $digest = $backend->hash_object( $tree );

Compute and return the SHA-1 digest for the given object.

May be called from the L<digest|Git::Database::Role::Object/digest>
builder for one of the object classes (L<Git::Database::Object::Blob>,
L<Git::Database::Object::Tree>, L<Git::Database::Object::Commit>,
L<Git::Database::Object::Tag>), so the implementation should not try to
shortcut and call C<< $object->digest >>.

The role provides a Perl implementation for it, but most backends will
want to override it for performance reasons.

=head2 create_object

    # argument is a HASH reference
    my $object = $store->create_object( \%attr );

    # arguments is a list of pairs
    my $object = $store->create_object( %attr );

Return an object instance of an object doing the
L<Git::Database::Role::Object> role, or dies if C<kind> is unknown
or not provided.

This method assumes the provided attribute values are consistent for the
object kind. B<Behaviour is undefined if the various attributes are not
internally consistent.> (E.g. if the size does not match the content.)

Note: this method creates new objects, but does not store them in
the underlying Git datatase. Do save them in the database, use
L<Git::Database::Role::Object::Writer/put_object>.
