MasonX::Component - manage mason components
use MasonX::Component::Interp; my $interp = MasonX::Component::Interp->new; $interp->exec('/component');
This distribution contains infrastructure to manage systemwide installed mason components. It's intended to be used to install mason components from CPAN and use them in your applications.
This works by registering components at installation time with MasonX::Component::Registry and using MasonX::Component::Interp instead of HTML::Mason::Interp which will automatically pick up all components registered in the registry.
Writing MasonX::Component components is easy. They are just normal CPAN distributions with the following differences:
If you happen to like Module::Install, do the following:
Put all your components in there.
This contains meta information of your components:
[MasonX::Component::YourDistribution] priority = 5 components = foo, bar
requires 'MasonX::Component' => 0;
This will automatically install files in
component and register them with the information in component.ini when you run
Currently MasonX::Component::Interp puts all registered components into the comp_root. A mechanism to only use requested components or exclude certain things is planned but not implemented yet.
