MooseX::MultiInitArg - Attributes with aliases for constructor arguments.
package Thinger; use Moose; use MooseX::MultiInitArg; has 'data' => ( metaclass => 'MultiInitArg', # For composability, you could use the following: # traits => ['MooseX::MultiInitArg::Trait'], is => 'ro', isa => 'Str', init_args => [qw(munge frobnicate)], ); package main; # All these are equivalent my $foo = Thinger->new(data => 'foo'); my $foo = Thinger->new(munge => 'foo'); my $foo = Thinger->new(frobnicate => 'foo');
If you've ever wanted to be able to call an attribute any number of things while you're passing arguments to your object constructor, Now You Can.
The primary motivator is that I have some attributes that were named inconsistently, and I wanted to rename them without breaking backwards compatibility with my existing API.
