NAME ^

MooseX::MungeHas - munge your "has" (works with Moo, Moose and Mouse)

SYNOPSIS ^

   package Foo::Bar;
   
   use Moose;
   use MooseX::MungeHas "is_ro";
   
   has foo => ();             # read-only
   has bar => (is => "rw");   # read-write

DESCRIPTION ^

MooseX::MungeHas alters the behaviour of the attributes of your Moo, Moose or Mouse based class. It manages to support all three because it doesn't attempt to do anything smart with metathingies; it simply installs a wrapper for has that munges the attribute specification hash before passing it on to the original has function.

The following munges are always applied (simply because I can see no sensible reason why you would not want them to be).

When you import this module (i.e. use MooseX::MungeHas) you can provide a list of additional mungers you want it to apply. These may be provided as coderefs, though for a few common, useful sets of behaviour, there are pre-defined shortcut strings.

   # "no_isa" is a pre-defined shortcut;
   # the other munger is a coderef.
   #
   use MooseX::MungeHas "no_isa", sub {
      # Make constructor ignore private attributes
      $_{init_arg} = undef if /^_/;
   };

Within coderefs, the name of the attribute being processed is available in the $_ variable, and the specification hash is available as %_.

You may provide multiple coderefs.

The following are the pre-defined shortcuts:

is_ro, is_rw, is_rwp, is_lazy

These mungers supply defaults for the is option.

always_coerce

Automatically provides coerce => 1 if the type constraint provides coercions. (Unless you've explicitly specified coerce => 0.)

no_isa

Switches off isa checks for attributes, unless they coerce.

simple_isa

Loosens type constraints if they don't coerce, and if it's likely to make them significantly faster. (Loosening Int to Num won't speed it up.)

Only works if you're using Type::Tiny constraints.

Mungers provided as coderefs are executed after predefined ones, but are otherwise executed in the order specified.

Multiple Wrappers

Since version 0.007, it has been possible to use MooseX::MungeHas to export multiple wrappers with different names:

   package Foo;
   use Moose;
   use MooseX::MungeHas {
      has_ro   => [ "is_ro", "always_coerce" ],
      has_rw   => [ "is_rw", "always_coerce" ],
   };
   
   has_ro "foo" => (required => 1);
   has_rw "bar";

Note in the example above, MooseX::MungeHas has installed two brand new wrapped has functions with different names, but it has left the standard has function unmolested.

If you wanted to alter the standard function too, then you could use:

   package Foo;
   use Moose;
   use MooseX::MungeHas {
      has      => [          "always_coerce" ],
      has_ro   => [ "is_ro", "always_coerce" ],
      has_rw   => [ "is_rw", "always_coerce" ],
   };
   
   has_ro "foo" => (required => 1);
   has_rw "bar";
