Module Version: 0.46   Source   Latest Release: MooseX-Storage-0.47

NAME ^

MooseX::Storage::Traits::OnlyWhenBuilt - A custom trait to bypass serialization

VERSION ^

version 0.46

SYNOPSIS ^

    {   package Point;
        use Moose;
        use MooseX::Storage;

        with Storage( traits => [qw|OnlyWhenBuilt|] );

        has 'x' => (is => 'rw', lazy_build => 1 );
        has 'y' => (is => 'rw', lazy_build => 1 );
        has 'z' => (is => 'rw', builder => '_build_z' );

        sub _build_x { 3 }
        sub _build_y { expensive_computation() }
        sub _build_z { 3 }

    }

    my $p = Point->new( 'x' => 4 );

    # the result of ->pack will contain:
    # { x => 4, z => 3 }
    $p->pack;

DESCRIPTION ^

Sometimes you don't want a particular attribute to be part of the serialization if it has not been built yet. If you invoke Storage() as outlined in the Synopsis, only attributes that have been built (i.e., where the predicate returns 'true') will be serialized. This avoids any potentially expensive computations.

See the SYNOPSIS for a nice example that can be easily cargo-culted.
