NAME ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::Awesome - A more awesome MakeMaker plugin for Dist::Zilla

VERSION ^

version 0.20

SYNOPSIS ^

In your dist.ini:

    ;; Replace [MakeMaker]
    ;[MakeMaker]
    [=inc::MyMakeMaker]

DESCRIPTION ^

Dist::Zilla's MakeMaker plugin is limited, if you want to stray from the marked path and do something that would normally be done in a package MY section or otherwise run custom code in your Makefile.PL you're out of luck.

This plugin is 100% compatible with Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker, so if you need something more complex you can just subclass it.

As an example, adding a package MY section to your Makefile.PL:

In your dist.ini:

    [=inc::MyDistMakeMaker / MyDistMakeMaker]

Then in your inc/MyDistMakeMaker.pm, real example from Hailo (which has [=inc::HailoMakeMaker / HailoMakeMaker] in its dist.ini):

    package inc::HailoMakeMaker;
    use Moose;

    extends 'Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::Awesome';

    override _build_MakeFile_PL_template => sub {
        my ($self) = @_;
        my $template = super();

        $template .= <<'TEMPLATE';
    package MY;

    sub test {
        my $inherited = shift->SUPER::test(@_);

        # Run tests with Moose and Mouse
        $inherited =~ s/^test_dynamic :: pure_all\n\t(.*?)\n/test_dynamic :: pure_all\n\tANY_MOOSE=Mouse $1\n\tANY_MOOSE=Moose $1\n/m;

        return $inherited;
    }
    TEMPLATE

        return $template;
    };

    __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;

Or maybe you're writing an XS distro and want to pass custom arguments to WriteMakefile(), here's an example of adding a LIBS argument in re::engine::PCRE:

    package inc::PCREMakeMaker;
    use Moose;

    extends 'Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::Awesome';

    override _build_WriteMakefile_args => sub { +{
        # Add LIBS => to WriteMakefile() args
        %{ super() },
        LIBS => [ '-lpcre' ],
    } };

    __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;

And another example from re::engine::Plan9:

    package inc::Plan9MakeMaker;
    use Moose;

    extends 'Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::Awesome';

    override _build_WriteMakefile_args => sub {
        my ($self) = @_;

        our @DIR = qw(libutf libfmt libregexp);
        our @OBJ = map { s/\.c$/.o/; $_ }
                   grep { ! /test/ }
                   glob "lib*/*.c";

        return +{
            %{ super() },
            DIR           => [ @DIR ],
            INC           => join(' ', map { "-I$_" } @DIR),

            # This used to be '-shared lib*/*.o' but that doesn't work on Win32
            LDDLFLAGS     => "-shared @OBJ",
        };
    };

    __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;

If you have custom code in your ExtUtils::MakeMaker-based Makefile.PL that Dist::Zilla can't replace via its default facilities you'll be able replace it by using this module.

Even if your Makefile.PL isn't ExtUtils::MakeMaker-based you should be able to override it. You'll just have to provide a new "_build_MakeFile_PL_template".

OVERRIDE ^

These are the methods you can currently override or method-modify in your custom inc/ module. The work that this module does is entirely done in small modular methods that can be overridden in your subclass. Here are some of the highlights:

_build_MakeFile_PL_template

Returns a Text::Template string used to construct the Makefile.PL.

If you need to insert some additional code to the beginning or end of Makefile.PL (without modifying the existing content, you should use an around method modifier, something like this:

    around _build_MakeFile_PL_template => sub {
        my $orig = shift;
        my $self = shift;

        my $NEW_CONTENT = ...;

        # insert new content near the beginning of the file, preserving the
        # preamble header
        my $string = $self->$orig(@_);
        $string =~ m/use warnings;\n\n/g;
        return substr($string, 0, pos($string)) . $NEW_CONTENT . substr($string, pos($string));
    };

_build_WriteMakefile_args

A HashRef of arguments that will be passed to ExtUtils::MakeMaker's WriteMakefile function.

_build_WriteMakefile_dump

Takes the return value of "_build_WriteMakefile_args" and constructs a Str that will be included in the Makefile.PL by "_build_MakeFile_PL_template".

test_dirs

exe_files

register_prereqs

setup_installer

The test/bin/share dirs and exe_files. These will all be passed to /"_build_WriteMakefile_args" later.

_build_share_dir_block

An ArrayRef[Str] with two elements to be used by "_build_MakeFile_PL_template". The first will declare your sharedir and the second will add a magic package MY section to install it. Deep magic.

OTHER

The main entry point is setup_installer via the Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool role. There are also other magic Dist::Zilla roles, check the source for more info.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

attempt to add Makefile.PL multiple times

This error from Dist::Zilla means that you've used both [MakeMaker] and [MakeMaker::Awesome]. You've either included MakeMaker directly in dist.ini, or you have plugin bundle that includes it. See @Filter for how to filter it out.

BUGS ^

This plugin would suck less if Dist::Zilla didn't use a INI-based config system so you could add a stuff like this in your main configuration file like you can with Module::Install.

The .ini file format can only support key-value pairs whereas any complex use of ExtUtils::MakeMaker requires running custom Perl code and passing complex data structures to WriteMakefile.
