NAME

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 2.1605

SYNOPSIS



  package MyApp::Moose;

  use Moose ();
  use Moose::Exporter;
  use Moose::Util::MetaRole;

  use MyApp::Role::Meta::Class;
  use MyApp::Role::Meta::Method::Constructor;
  use MyApp::Role::Object;

  Moose::Exporter->setup_import_methods( also => Moose );

  sub init_meta {
      shift;
      my %args = @_;

      Moose->init_meta(%args);

      Moose::Util::MetaRole::apply_metaroles(
          for             => $args{for_class},
          class_metaroles => {
              class       => [MyApp::Role::Meta::Class],
              constructor => [MyApp::Role::Meta::Method::Constructor],
          },
      );

      Moose::Util::MetaRole::apply_base_class_roles(
          for   => $args{for_class},
          roles => [MyApp::Role::Object],
      );

      return $args{for_class}->meta();
  }



DESCRIPTION

This utility module is designed to help authors of Moose extensions write extensions that are able to cooperate with other Moose extensions. To do this, you must write your extensions as roles, which can then be dynamically applied to the caller’s metaclasses.

This module makes sure to preserve any existing superclasses and roles already set for the meta objects, which means that any number of extensions can apply roles in any order.

USAGE

The easiest way to use this module is through Moose::Exporter, which can generate the appropriate init_meta method for you, and make sure it is called when imported.

FUNCTIONS

This module provides two functions.

    apply_metaroles( ... )

This function will apply roles to one or more metaclasses for the specified class. It will return a new metaclass object for the class or role passed in the for parameter.

It accepts the following parameters:
o for => $name

This specifies the class or for which to alter the meta classes. This can be a package name, or an appropriate meta-object (a Moose::Meta::Class or Moose::Meta::Role).

o class_metaroles => \%roles

This is a hash reference specifying which metaroles will be applied to the class metaclass and its contained metaclasses and helper classes.

Each key should in turn point to an array reference of role names.

It accepts the following keys:
class
attribute
method
wrapped_method
instance
constructor
destructor
error

o role_metaroles => \%roles

This is a hash reference specifying which metaroles will be applied to the role metaclass and its contained metaclasses and helper classes.

It accepts the following keys:
role
attribute
method
required_method
conflicting_method
application_to_class
application_to_role
application_to_instance
application_role_summation
applied_attribute

apply_base_class_roles( for => CW$class, roles => \@roles )

This function will apply the specified roles to the object’s base class.
