mymeta-requires - Extract module requirements from MYMETA files
Usage: mymeta-requires [OPTIONS...] PHASE OPTIONS: --runtime (default: on) --build (default: on) --test (default: on) --configure (default: on) --develop (default: off) TYPE OPTIONS --recommends (default: on) --suggests (default: on) OTHER OPTIONS: --file, -f Specify alternate MYMETA file --verbose, -v Slightly more verbose logging --report Report on all prereqs, missing or not --help, -h Usage help All long-style options may be negated, e.g. "--no-test"
This program extracts CPAN module requirements as recorded in a MYMETA.json or MYMETA.yml file in the current directory and prints them one-per-line to
STDOUT. It is intended to help install prerequisites manually using a CPAN client. For example, with ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.58 (which writes MYMETA files) and App::cpanminus:
$ perl Makefile.PL $ mymeta-requires | cpanm
Or with the traditional cpan client:
$ perl Makefile.PL $ cpan $(mymeta-requires)
The various configuration options allow customizing which prerequisite prerequisite phases and types are extracted. (See "PREREQUITIES" in CPAN::Meta for an explanation of phases and types.)
By default all phases except
develop are included and types
suggests. Any phase or type may be negated by prefixing
no- to the option. E.g.
$ mymeta-requires --no-suggests
If no MYMETA.json or MYMETA.yml file is found, this will fall back to using a META.json or META.yml This is not guaranteed to have all dependencies, but may be useful for bootstrapping configuration requirements. E.g.
# get any configuration requirements $ mymeta-requires | cpanm # run configuration $ perl Makefile.PL # repeat to get any dynamic dependencies $ mymeta-requires | cpanm
--report, instead of just listing missing prereqs, all the specified prereqs (or default ones) will be listed with their installed version (or listed as missing) along with the prerequisites required.
