NAME ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::AssertOS - Require that our distribution is running on a particular OS

VERSION ^

version 0.06

SYNOPSIS ^

  # In dist.ini - It is important that AssertOS follows MakeMaker or
  # ModuleBuild

  [MakeMaker]

  [AssertOS]
  os = Linux
  os = FreeBSD
  os = cygwin

The resultant distribution will die at Makefile.PL unless the platform the code is running on is Linux, FreeBSD or Cygwin.

DESCRIPTION ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::AssertOS is a Dist::Zilla plugin that integrates Devel::AssertOS so that CPAN authors may easily stipulate which particular OS environments their distributions may be built and installed on.

The author specifies which OS or OS families are supported. The necessary Devel::AssertOS files are copied to the inc/ directory and Makefile.PL or Build.PL is mungled to include the necessary incantation.

On the module user side, the bundled inc/ Devel::AssertOS determines whether the current environment is supported or not and will die accordingly.

As this plugin mungles the Makefile.PL/Build.PL it is imperative that it is specified in dist.ini AFTER [MakeMaker] or [ModuleBuild].

This plugin also automagically adds the no_index metadata so that inc/ is excluded from PAUSE indexing. If you use Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaNoIndex, there may be conflicts.

ATTRIBUTES

os

Specify as many times as wanted the OS that you wish your distribution to work with. See Devel::AssertOS and Devel::CheckOS for what may be given.

bundle

If set to c<0> Devel::AssertOS will not be bundled in the distribution. It will instead be added to configure_requires in the META files so CPAN clients can install it before running Makefile.PL. The default is 1, so Devel::AssertOS is bundled in inc.

METHODS

These are required by the roles that this plugin uses.

mvp_multivalue_args
gather_files

Required by Dist::Zilla::Role::FileGatherer.

setup_installer

Required by Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool.

metadata

Required by Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaProvider.

KUDOS ^

Based on use-devel-assertos by David Cantrell

Build.PL support contributed by Yanick Champoux

Thanks to Ricardo Signes, not only for Dist::Zilla, but for explaining Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool's place in the build process. This made this plugin possible.
