NAME ^

MooX::Types::MooseLike::Base - Moose like types for Moo

SYNOPSIS ^

    package MyPackage;
    use Moo;
    use MooX::Types::MooseLike::Base qw(:all);

    has "beers_by_day_of_week" => (
        isa => HashRef
    );
    has "current_BAC" => (
        isa => Num
    );

    # Also supporting is_$type.  For example, is_Int() can be used as follows
    has 'legal_age' => (
        is => 'ro',
        isa => sub { die "$_[0] is not of legal age"
                           unless (is_Int($_[0]) && $_[0] > 17) },
    );

DESCRIPTION ^

Moo attributes (like Moose) have an 'isa' property. This module provides some basic types for this property. One can import all types with ':all' tag or import a list of types like:

    use MooX::Types::MooseLike::Base qw/HashRef CodeRef/;

so one could then declare some attributtes like:

        has 'contact' => (
          is => 'ro',
          isa => HashRef,
        );
        has 'guest_list' => (
          is => 'ro',
          isa => ArrayRef,
        );
        has 'records' => (
          is => 'ro',
          isa => ArrayRef[Int],
        );

These types provide a check that the contact attribute is a hash reference, that the guest_list is an array reference, and that the records are an array of hash references.

TYPES (1st class functions - return a coderef) ^

Any

Any type (test is always true)

Item

Synonymous with Any type

Undef

A type that is not defined

Defined

A type that is defined

Bool

A boolean 1|0 type

Value

A non-reference type

Ref

A reference type

Str

A non-reference type where a reference to it is a SCALAR

Num

A number type

Int

An integer type

ArrayRef

An ArrayRef (ARRAY) type

HashRef

A HashRef (HASH) type

CodeRef

A CodeRef (CODE) type

RegexpRef

A regular expression reference type

GlobRef

A glob reference type

FileHandle

A type that is either a builtin perl filehandle or an IO::Handle object

Object

A type that is an object (think blessed)

PARAMETERIZED TYPES ^

Parameterizing Types With a Single Type

The following types can be parameterized with other types.

ArrayRef

For example, ArrayRef[HashRef]

HashRef

ScalarRef

Maybe

For example, Maybe[Int] would be an integer or undef

Parameterizing Types With Multiple Types

AnyOf

Check if the attribute is any of the listed types (think union) Takes a list of types as the argument. For example:

  isa => AnyOf[Int, ArrayRef[Int], HashRef[Int]]

Note: AnyOf is passed an ArrayRef[CodeRef]

AllOf

Check if the attribute is all of the listed types (think intersection) Takes a list of types as the argument. For example:

  isa => AllOf[
    InstanceOf['Human'], 
    ConsumerOf['Air'], 
    HasMethods['breath', 'dance']
  ],

Parameterizing Types With (Multiple) Strings

In addition, we have some parameterized types that take string arguments.

InstanceOf

Check if the attribute is an object instance of one or more classes. Uses blessed and isa to do so. Takes a list of class names as the argument. For example:

  isa => InstanceOf['MyClass','MyOtherClass']

Note: InstanceOf is passed an ArrayRef[Str]

ConsumerOf

Check if the attribute is blessed and consumes one or more roles. Uses blessed and does to do so. Takes a list of role names as the arguments. For example:

  isa => ConsumerOf['My::Role', 'My::AnotherRole'] 

HasMethods

Check if the attribute is blessed and has one or more methods. Uses blessed and can to do so. Takes a list of method names as the arguments. For example:

  isa => HasMethods[qw/postulate contemplate liberate/]

Enum

Check if the attribute is one of the enumerated strings. Takes a list of possible string values. For example:

  isa => Enum['rock', 'spock', 'paper', 'lizard', 'scissors']
