Does anyone know of a Yak Shaving Anonymous association hackers addicted to Tibetan bovine shearing could join?
Anyway, here are two little things I hacked on top of Dist::Zilla that peeps might find useful.
$ dzil *<tab>* build install new plugins rjbsver smoke xtest clean listdeps nop release run test
is actually the one that started that round of shaving for me. As
there is about a gazillion Dist::Zilla plugins, I wanted to have a quick way
to see all the plugins installed on a specific machine.
Enter a new dzil sub-command:
$ dzil plugins [ lotsa plugins ] MatchManifest - Ensure that MANIFEST is correct MetaConfig - summarize Dist::Zilla configuration into distmeta MetaJSON - produce a META.json * MetaNoIndex - Stop CPAN from indexing stuff MetaProvides - Generating and Populating 'provides' in your META.yml MetaProvides::Class - Scans Dist::Zilla's .pm files and tries to identify classes using Class::Discover. MetaProvides::FromFile - In the event nothing else works, pull in hand-crafted metadata from a specified file. MetaProvides::Package - Extract namespaces/version from traditional packages for provides * MetaResources - provide arbitrary "resources" for distribution metadata MetaTests - common extra tests for META.yml MetaYAML - produce a META.yml [ still lotsa plugins ]
The plugins marked with an asterix are used by the current
give a plugin name to the sub-command, and it'll act as a glorified
perldoc Dist::Zilla::Plugin::<Plugin Name>. The sweet thing is,
autocomplete also work there:
$ dzil plugins Pod<Tab> PodCoverageTests PodSyntaxTests PodVersion PodWeaver
Both patches are available on my Github fork of Dist::Zilla. Enjoy!
