NAME ^

MooseX::MultiInitArg - Attributes with aliases for constructor arguments.

SYNOPSIS ^

  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');

DESCRIPTION ^

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.
