DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides some Moose sugar for defining Twitter API methods. It is part of the Net-Twitter distribution on CPAN and is used by Net::Twitter::API::RESTv1_1, Net::Twitter::API::Search, and perhaps others.

It's intent is to make maintaining Net::Twitter as easy as possible.

METHODS ^

base_url

Specifies, by name, the attribute which contains the base URL for the defined API.

twitter_api_method

Defines a Twitter API method. Valid arguments are:

authenticate

Specifies whether, by default, API methods calls should authenticate.

datetime_parser

Specifies the Date::Time::Format derived parser to use for parsing and formatting date strings for the API being defined.

description

A string describing the method, suitable for documentation.

aliases

An ARRAY ref of strings containing alternate names for the method.

path

A string containing the path part of the API URL

path_suffix

A string containing an additional suffix to append to the path (for legacy reasons). If you want to suffix appended, pass the empty string. Defaults to ".json".

method

A string containing the HTTP method for the call. Defaults to "GET".

add_source

A boolean, indicating whether or not the source parameter should be added to the API call. (The source value is assigned by Twitter for registered applications.) Defaults to 0.

params

An ARRAY ref of strings naming all of the valid parameters. Defaults to an empty ARRAY ref.

required

An ARRAY ref of strings naming all of the required parameters. Defaults to an empty ARRAY ref.

returns

A string describing the return type of the API method call.

deprecated

A boolean indicating whether or not this API is deprecated. If set to 1, code for the method will be created. This option is optional, and is used by the Net-Twitter distribution when generating documentation. It defaults to 0.
