=head1 NAME

C<Tickit::Widgets> - load several L<Tickit::Widget> classes at once


 use Tickit::Widgets qw( Static VBox HBox );

Equivalent to

 use Tickit::Widget::Static;
 use Tickit::Widget::VBox;
 use Tickit::Widget::HBox;


This module provides an C<import> utility to simplify code that uses many
different L<Tickit::Widget> subclasses. Instead of a C<use> line per module,
you can simply C<use> this module and pass it the base name of each class.
It will C<require> each of the modules.

Note that because each Widget module should be a pure object class with no
exports, this utility does not run the C<import> method of the used classes.


sub import
   shift; # class

   # Only need to 'require' the modules because they're all clean object
   # classes, no need to import any of them
   foreach ( @_ ) {
      my $class = $_; # $_ is alias to read-only values;
      local $_; # placate bug in Tickit::RenderContext 0.06

      $class = "Tickit::Widget::$class" unless $class =~ m/::/;

      ( my $file = "$class.pm" ) =~ s{::}{/}g;

      require $file;
