Module Version: 1.000004   Source  

NAME ^

Test::File::ShareDir - Create a Fake ShareDir for your modules for testing.

VERSION ^

version 1.000004

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Test::More;

    # use FindBin; optional

    use Test::File::ShareDir
        # -root => "$FindBin::Bin/../" # optional,
        -share => {
            -module => { 'My::Module' => 'share/MyModule' }
            -dist   => { 'My-Dist'    => 'share/somefolder' }
        };

    use My::Module;

    use File::ShareDir qw( module_dir dist_dir );

    module_dir( 'My::Module' ) # dir with files from $dist/share/MyModule

    dist_dir( 'My-Dist' ) # dir with files from $dist/share/somefolder

DESCRIPTION ^

This module only has support for creating 'new' style share dirs and are NOT compatible with old File::ShareDirs.

For this reason, unless you have File::ShareDir 1.00 or later installed, this module will not be usable by you.

SIMPLE INTERFACE ^

Starting with version 0.4.0, there are a few extra interfaces you can use.

These will probably be more useful, and easier to grok, because they don't have a layer of indirection in order to simultaneously support both Module and Dist ShareDir's.

Simple Exporter Interfaces

Test::File::ShareDir::Dist

Test::File::ShareDir::Dist provides a simple export interface for making TempDir ShareDir's from a given path:

    use Test::File::ShareDir::Dist { "Dist-Name" => "share/" };

This will automatically create a ShareDir for Dist-Name in a TempDir based on the contents of CWD/share/

See Test::File::ShareDir::Dist for details.

Test::File::ShareDir::Module

Test::File::ShareDir::Module provides a simple export interface for making TempDir ShareDir's from a given path:

    use Test::File::ShareDir::Module { "Module::Name" => "share/" };

This will automatically create a ShareDir for Module::Name in a TempDir based on the contents of CWD/share/

See Test::File::ShareDir::Module for details.

Simple Object Oriented Interfaces

Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Dist

Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Dist provides a simple object oriented interface for making TempDir ShareDir's from a given path:

    use Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Dist;

    my $obj = Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Dist->new( dists => { "Dist-Name" => "share/" } );
    $obj->install_all_dists;
    $obj->add_to_inc;

This will automatically create a ShareDir for Dist-Name in a TempDir based on the contents of CWD/share/

See Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Dist for details.

Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Module

Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Module provides a simple object oriented interface for making TempDir ShareDir's from a given path:

    use Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Module;

    my $obj = Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Module->new( modules => { "Module::Name" => "share/" } );
    $obj->install_all_modules;
    $obj->add_to_inc;

This will automatically create a ShareDir for Module::Name in a TempDir based on the contents of CWD/share/

See Test::File::ShareDir::Object::Module for details.

IMPORTING ^

-root

This parameter is the prefix the other paths are relative to.

If this parameter is not specified, it defaults to the Current Working Directory ( CWD ).

In versions prior to 0.3.0, this value was mandatory.

The rationale behind using CWD as the default value is as follows.

Therefor, defaulting to CWD is a reasonably sane default for most people, but where it is not it can still be overridden.

  -root => "$FindBin::Bin/../" # resolves to project root from t/ regardless of Cwd.

-share

This parameter is mandatory, and contains a hashref containing the data that explains what directories you want shared.

  -share =>  { ..... }

-module

-module contains a hashref mapping Module names to path names for module_dir style share dirs.

  -share => {
    -module => { 'My::Module' => 'share/mymodule/', }
  }

  ...

  module_dir('My::Module')

Notedly, it is a hashref, which means there is a limitation of one share dir per module. This is simply because having more than one share dir per module makes no sense at all.

-dist

-dist contains a hashref mapping Distribution names to path names for dist_dir style share dirs. The same limitation applied to -module applies here.

  -share => {
    -dist => { 'My-Dist' => 'share/mydist' }
  }
  ...
  dist_dir('My-Dist')
