NAME

MouseX::ConfigFromFile - An abstract Mouse role for setting attributes from a configfile

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

A real role based on this abstract role:



  package MyApp::ConfigRole;
  use Mouse::Role;
  with MouseX::ConfigFromFile;

  use MyApp::ConfigLoader;

  sub get_config_from_file {
      my ($class, $file) = @_;

      my $config_hashref = MyApp::ConfigLoader->load($file);

      return $config_hashref;
  }



A class that uses it:



  package MyApp;
  use Mouse;
  with MyApp::ConfigRole;

  # optionally, default the configfile:
  has +configfile => ( default => /tmp/myapp.yml );



A script that uses the class with a configfile:



  my $app = MyApp->new_with_config(
      configfile => /etc/myapp.yml,
      other_opt  => foo,
  );



DESCRIPTION

This is an abstract role which provides an alternate constructor for creating objects using parameters passed in from a configuration file. The actual implementation of reading the configuration file is left to concrete subroles.

It declares an attribute configfile and a class method new_with_config, and requires that concrete roles derived from it implement the class method get_config_from_file.

Attributes specified directly as arguments to new_with_config supercede those in the configfile.

METHODS

    new_with_config(%params?)

This is an alternate constructor, which knows to look for the configfile option in its arguments and use that to set attributes. It is much like MouseX::Getopts’ new_with_options.

Example:



  my $app = MyApp->new_with_config( configfile => /etc/foo.yaml );



Explicit arguments will override anything set by the configfile.

    get_config_from_file($file)

This method is not implemented in this role, but it is required of all subroles. Its two arguments are the class name and the configfile, and it is expected to return a hashref of arguments to pass to new() which are sourced from the configfile.

Example:



  sub get_config_from_file {
      my ($class, $file) = @_;

      my $config = {};

      # ... load config from $file ...

      return $config;
  }



PROPERTIES

    configfile

This is a Path::Class::File object which can be coerced from a regular path name string. This is the file your attributes are loaded from. You can add a default configfile in the class using the role and it will be honored at the appropriate time:



  has +configfile => ( default => /etc/myapp.yaml );
