NAME ^

Type::Tiny::Manual::UsingWithMoo - how to use Type::Tiny and Type::Library with Moo

SYNOPSIS ^

   {
      package Person;
      
      use Moo 1.006000;
      use Sub::Quote qw( quote_sub );
      use Types::Standard qw( Str Int );
      
      has name => (
         is      => "ro",
         isa     => Str,
      );
      
      my $PositiveInt = Int
         -> where( quote_sub '$_ > 0' )
         -> plus_coercions( Int, sub { abs $_ } );
      
      has age => (
         is      => "rwp",
         isa     => $PositiveInt,
         coerce  => 1,
      );
      
      sub get_older {
         my $self = shift;
         my ($years) = @_;
         $PositiveInt->assert_valid($years);
         $self->_set_age($self->age + $years);
      }
   }

DESCRIPTION ^

Type::Tiny is tested with Moo 1.001000 and above.

Type::Tiny overloads &{}. Moo supports using objects that overload &{} as isa constraints, so Type::Tiny objects can directly be used in isa.

Moo prior to 1.006000 doesn't support coerce => 1, instead requiring a coderef to use as a coercion. However, Type::Tiny can provide you with a suitable coderef to use (actually an object that overloads &{}). Just use:

   has age => (
      is      => "rwp",
      isa     => $PositiveInt,
      coerce  => $PositiveInt->coercion,
   );

If you can upgrade to the latest Moo, and use coerce => 1 you'll have a lot more fun though. :-)

Type::Tiny hooks into Moo's HandleMoose interface to ensure that type constraints get inflated to Moose type constraints if and when Moo inflates your class to a full Moose class.

Optimization

The usual advice for optimizing type constraints applies: use type constraints which can be inlined whenever possible, and define coercions as strings rather than coderefs.

Upgrading to Moo 1.002000 or above should provide a slight increase in speed for type constraints, as it allows them to be inlined into accessors and constructors.

If creating your own type constraints using Type::Tiny->new, then consider using Sub::Quote to quote the coderef; this allows you to take advantage of inlining without having to write your own inlining routines.

See also Type::Tiny::Manual::Optimization.
