Project::Libs - Add module directories of a project into @INC automatically
# the simplest way use Project::Libs; # add more other dirs into @INC use Project::Libs lib_dirs => [qw(extlib vendor)]; # add more other marks locate on a project root use Project::Libs project_root_files => [qw(README Changes)];
Project::Libs automatically adds directories that may contain modules which a project depends on.
Imagin there's such a project as below: CPAN-standard file arrangement and using git as a SCM (`modules' directory contains git submodules and that's written in `.gitmodules').
|_ PROJECT_ROOT |_ .git |_ .gitmodules |_ Makefile.PL |_ lib/ |_ t/ |_ lib/ |_ compile.t |_ basic.t |_ script/ |_ server.pl |_ create.pl |_ extlib/ |_ modules/ |_ Foo |_ lib/ |_ Bar |_ lib/ |_ ...
You may bother writing such code as below in all the script located in t/*, script/*, or other to add module path into @INC.
use FindBin; use lib "$FindBin::Bin/../lib"; use lib glob "$FindBin::Bin/../modules/*/lib";
To `use Project::Libs' helps you doing that.
In this case, after loading this module, the directories below are added into @INC:
