NAME ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::GitHub::Meta - Add a GitHub repo's info to META.{yml,json}

VERSION ^

version 0.36

SYNOPSIS ^

Configure git with your GitHub login name:

    $ git config --global github.user LoginName

then, in your dist.ini:

    # default config
    [GitHub::Meta]

    # to override the repo name
    [GitHub::Meta]
    repo = SomeRepo

See "ATTRIBUTES" for more options.

DESCRIPTION ^

This Dist::Zilla plugin adds some information about the distribution's GitHub repository to the META.{yml,json} files, using the official CPAN::Meta specification.

Note that, to work properly, GitHub::Meta needs the network to connect to GitHub itself. If the network is not available, it will try to come up with sensible data, but it may be inaccurate.

GitHub::Meta currently sets the following fields:

homepage

The official home of this project on the web, taken from the GitHub repository info. If the homepage option is set to false this will be skipped (default is true).

When offline, this is not set.

repository
web

URL pointing to the GitHub page of the project.

url

URL pointing to the GitHub repository (git://...).

type

This is set to git by default.

bugtracker
web

URL pointing to the GitHub issues page of the project. If the bugs option is set to false (default is true) or the issues are disabled in the GitHub repository, this will be skipped.

When offline, this is not set.

ATTRIBUTES ^

repo

The name of the GitHub repository. By default the name will be extracted from the URL of the remote specified in the remote option, and if that fails the dist name (from dist.ini) is used. It can also be in the form user/repo when it belongs to another GitHub user/organization.

remote

The name of the Git remote pointing to the GitHub repository ("origin" by default). This is used when trying to guess the repository name.

homepage

The META homepage field will be set to the value of the homepage field set on the GitHub repository's info if this option is set to true (default).

wiki

The META homepage field will be set to the URL of the wiki of the GitHub repository, if this option is set to true (default is false) and if the GitHub Wiki happens to be activated (see the GitHub repository's Admin panel).

bugs

The META bugtracker web field will be set to the issue's page of the repository on GitHub, if this options is set to true (default) and if the GitHub Issues happen to be activated (see the GitHub repository's Admin panel).

fork

If the repository is a GitHub fork of another repository this option will make all the information be taken from the original repository instead of the forked one, if it's set to true (default).
