NAME

Type::Tiny::Class - type constraints based on the "isa" method

CONTENTS

STATUS

This module is covered by the Type-Tiny stability policy.

DESCRIPTION

Type constraints of the general form { $_->isa("Some::Class") }.

This package inherits from Type::Tiny; see that for most documentation. Major differences are listed below:

    Constructor

new When the constructor is called on an instance of Type::Tiny::Class, it passes the call through to the constructor of the class for the constraint. So for example:



   my $type = Type::Tiny::Class->new(class => "Foo::Bar");
   my $obj  = $type->new(hello => "World");
   say ref($obj);   # prints "Foo::Bar"



This little bit of DWIM was borrowed from MooseX::Types::TypeDecorator, but Type::Tiny doesn’t take the idea quite as far.

    Attributes

class The class for the constraint.
constraint Unlike Type::Tiny, you cannot pass a constraint coderef to the constructor. Instead rely on the default.
inlined Unlike Type::Tiny, you cannot pass an inlining coderef to the constructor. Instead rely on the default.
parent Parent is automatically calculated, and cannot be passed to the constructor.

    Methods

plus_constructors($source, $method_name) Much like plus_coercions but adds coercions that go via a constructor. (In fact, this is implemented as a wrapper for plus_coercions.)

Example:



   package MyApp::Minion;
  
   use Moose; extends "MyApp::Person";
  
   use Types::Standard qw( HashRef Str );
   use Type::Utils qw( class_type );
  
   my $Person = class_type({ class => "MyApp::Person" });
  
   has boss => (
      is     => "ro",
      isa    => $Person->plus_constructors(
         HashRef,     "new",
         Str,         "_new_from_name",
      ),
      coerce => 1,
   );
  
   package main;
  
   MyApp::Minion->new(
      ...,
      boss => "Bob",  ## via MyApp::Person->_new_from_name
   );
  
   MyApp::Minion->new(
      ...,
      boss => { name => "Bob" },  ## via MyApp::Person->new
   );



Because coercing HashRef via constructor is a common desire, if you call plus_constructors with no arguments at all, this is the default.



   $classtype->plus_constructors(Types::Standard::HashRef, "new")
   $classtype->plus_constructors()  ## identical to above



This is handy for Moose/Mouse/Moo-based classes.
