Module Version: 0.10   Source   Latest Release: MooseX-Aliases-0.11

NAME ^

MooseX::Aliases - easy aliasing of methods and attributes in Moose

VERSION ^

version 0.10

SYNOPSIS ^

    package MyApp;
    use Moose;
    use MooseX::Aliases;

    has this => (
        isa   => 'Str',
        is    => 'rw',
        alias => 'that',
    );

    sub foo { my $self = shift; print $self->that }
    alias bar => 'foo';

    my $o = MyApp->new();
    $o->this('Hello World');
    $o->bar; # prints 'Hello World'

or

    package MyApp::Role;
    use Moose::Role;
    use MooseX::Aliases;

    has this => (
        isa   => 'Str',
        is    => 'rw',
        alias => 'that',
    );

    sub foo { my $self = shift; print $self->that }
    alias bar => 'foo';

DESCRIPTION ^

The MooseX::Aliases module will allow you to quickly alias methods in Moose. It provides an alias parameter for has() to generate aliased accessors as well as the standard ones. Attributes can also be initialized in the constructor via their aliased names.

You can create more than one alias at once by passing a listref:

    has ip_addr => (
        alias => [ qw(ipAddr ip) ],
    );

FUNCTIONS ^

alias ALIAS METHODNAME

Installs ALIAS as a method that is aliased to the method METHODNAME.

CAVEATS ^

The order of arguments for the alias method has changed (as of version 0.05). I think the new order makes more sense, and it will make future refactoring I have in mind easier. The old order still works (although it gives a deprecation warning), unless you were relying on being able to override an existing method with an alias - this will now override in the other direction. The old argument order will be removed in a future release.

BUGS ^

No known bugs.
