NAME ^

MooseX::RoleQR - allow "before qr{...} => sub {...};" in roles

SYNOPSIS ^

   {
      package Local::Role;
      use MooseX::RoleQR;
      after qr{^gr} => sub {
         print " World\n";
      };
   }
   
   {
      package Local::Class;
      use Moose;
      with qw( Local::Role );
      sub greet {
         print "Hello";
      }
   }
   
   Local::Class->new->greet; # prints "Hello World\n"

DESCRIPTION ^

Method modifiers in Moose classes can be specified using regular expressions a la:

   before qr{...} => sub {...};

However, this is not allowed in Moose roles because Moose doesn't know which class the role will be composed with, and thus doesn't know which method names match the regular expression. Let's change that.

This module implements regular expression matched method modifiers for Moose roles. It does so by deferring the calculation of which methods to modify until role application time.

The current implementation handles only before, after and around modifiers (not override), and thus it overrides the following standard Moose::Role keywords:

before Str|ArrayRef|RegexpRef => CodeRef
after Str|ArrayRef|RegexpRef => CodeRef
around Str|ArrayRef|RegexpRef => CodeRef

Caveat Regarding the Order of Method Modifiers

Moose executes method modifiers in a well-defined order (see Moose::Manual::MethodModifiers for details). This module has the potential to disrupt that order, as regular expression matched modifiers are always applied after the role's other modifiers have been applied.

Caveat: no use Moose::Role

You should use MooseX::RoleQR instead of Moose::Role; not as well as.

General Caveat

There's some pretty nasty stuff under the hood. Let's pretend it's not there.
