=head1 NAME

MooseX::MetaDescription::Meta::Trait - Custom class meta-trait for meta-descriptions


  package Foo;
  use Moose;

  has 'baz' => (
      # apply this as a trait to your attribute
      traits      => [ 'MooseX::MetaDescription::Meta::Trait' ],
      is          => 'ro',
      isa         => 'Str',
      default     => sub { 'Foo::baz' },
      description => {
          bar   => 'Foo::baz::bar',
          gorch => 'Foo::baz::gorch',


This is the core of the Meta Description functionality, it is a role that is done
by both L<MooseX::MetaDescription::Meta::Attribute> and L<MooseX::MetaDescription::Meta::Class>
and can be used on it's own as a meta-attribute trait.

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item B<description>

The description C<HASH> ref is stored here.

=item B<metadescription_classname>

This provides the name of the metadescription class, currently this
defaults to L<MooseX::MetaDescription::Description>. It is read only
and so can only be specified at instance construction time.

=item B<metadescription>

This is the instance of the class specified in C<metadescription_classname>
it is generated lazily and is also read-only. In general you will never
need to set this yourself, but simply set C<metadescription_classname>
and it will all just work.

=item B<prepare_traits_for_application ($traits)>

This is passed the ARRAY ref of trait names so that they can be pre-processed
before they are applied to the metadescription. It is expected to return
an ARRAY ref of trait names to be applied. By default it simply returns what
it is given.

=item B<meta>

The L<Moose::Role> metaclass.
