Module Version: 0.023   Source   Latest Release: Dist-Zilla-Plugin-Twitter-0.025

NAME ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Twitter - Twitter when you release with Dist::Zilla

VERSION ^

version 0.023

SYNOPSIS ^

In your dist.ini:

    [Twitter]
    hash_tags = #foo
    url_shortener = TinyURL

DESCRIPTION ^

This plugin will use Net::Twitter to send a release notice to Twitter. By default, it will include a link to release on http://metacpan.org.

The default configuration is as follows:

    [Twitter]
    tweet_url = https://metacpan.org/release/{{$AUTHOR_UC}}/{{$DIST}}-{{$VERSION}}/
    tweet = Released {{$DIST}}-{{$VERSION}}{{$TRIAL}} {{$URL}} !META{resources}{repository}{web}
    url_shortener = TinyURL

The tweet_url is shortened with WWW::Shorten::TinyURL or whichever other service you choose (use 'none' to use the full URL, in which case Twitter will shorten it for you) and appended to the tweet message.

VARIABLE INTERPOLATION

The following variables are available for substitution in the URL and message templates:

      DIST        # Foo-Bar
      MODULE      # Foo::Bar
      ABSTRACT    # Foo-Bar is a module that FooBars
      VERSION     # 1.23
      TRIAL       # -TRIAL if is_trial, empty string otherwise.
      TARBALL     # Foo-Bar-1.23.tar.gz
      AUTHOR_UC   # JOHNDOE
      AUTHOR_LC   # johndoe
      AUTHOR_PATH # J/JO/JOHNDOE
      URL         # http://tinyurl.com/...

DISTMETA INTERPOLATION

Resources information available in the META.* files of the distribution can be accessed via <META{key}{subkey}[1]>. You may mix-and-match {...} to access hashref elements and [\d] to access arrayref elements. You're responsible for making sure you are accessing the right part of the META data structure, and treating it as the right type of data. See CPAN::Meta::Spec and the "$TYPE DATA" sections of CPAN::Meta in particular.

The META{...} replacement may also have one of two modifiers, which are prefixed directly before META:

! - URL shortening

Providing an exclamation point (!META{...}) will URL-shorten the value you extract from the distmeta data structure. This will have no effect unless the value is a URL to begin with.

@ - Arrayref stringification

Providing an at-symbol (@META{...}) will include all the elements of the arrayref you specify by joining them with $". So, this is just like doing "@{ $your_array_ref }".

So, for example, to use the GitHub home of the project instead of its metacpan page, one can do:

    [Twitter]
    tweet = Released {{$DIST}}-{{$VERSION}}{{$TRIAL}} !META{resource}{repository}{web}
    url_shortener = TinyURL

Or, to include the authors in your tweet:

    [Twitter]
    tweet = @META{author} released {{$MODULE}} {{$VERSION}}: {{$URL}}

PAUSEID

You must be using the UploadToCPAN or FakeRelease plugin for this plugin to determine your PAUSEID.

HASHTAGS

You can use the hash_tags option to append hash tags (or anything, really) to the end of the message generated from tweet.

    [Twitter]
    hash_tags = #perl #cpan #foo
