NAME ^

distini-cpanfile - Dump cpanfile out of dist.ini

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.001 of distini-cpanfile (from Perl distribution Module-CPANfile-FromDistINI), released on 2017-08-11.

SYNOPSIS ^

 % distini-cpanfile > cpanfile

DESCRIPTION ^

This script dumps prerequisites information in Dist::Zilla's dist.ini. It gives a simple way to install a Dist::Zilla-based distribution from a source repository along with its dependencies. You don't have to install Dist::Zilla and do a dzil build first. When a source repository only contains dist.ini and no Makefile.PL or Build.PL or cpanfile, you still cannot use cpanm git://repo-url/Dist.git, but at least now you can git clone, cd to the source directory, run this script, and install the module using cpanm --installdeps.

This script is not perfect, because: 1) in Dist::Zilla prerequisites can be specified dynamically or from other sources (including a cpanfile :-), this script only parses [Prereqs/*] sections; 2) installing from source repository does not always work because source repository != built version, but in simple cases it can work.

As an alternative to installing from a source repository, to test things often you can also use:

 % prove -l
 % perl -I/path/to/source/repo/lib your-app.pl
