NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::GatherDir - gather all the files in a directory

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 4.300030

DESCRIPTION

This is a very, very simple FileGatherer plugin. It looks in the directory named in the root attribute and adds all the files it finds there. If the root begins with a tilde, the tilde is replaced with the current user’s home directory according to File::HomeDir.

Almost every dist will be built with one GatherDir plugin, since it’s the easiest way to get files from disk into your dist. Most users just need:



  [GatherDir]



...and this will pick up all the files from the current directory into the dist. You can use it multiple times, as you can any other plugin, by providing a plugin name. For example, if you want to include external specification files into a subdir of your dist, you might write:



  [GatherDir]
  ; this plugin needs no config and gathers most of your files

  [GatherDir / SpecFiles]
  ; this plugin gets all the files in the root dir and adds them under ./spec
  root   = ~/projects/my-project/spec
  prefix = spec



ATTRIBUTES

    root

This is the directory in which to look for files. If not given, it defaults to the dist root — generally, the place where your dist.ini or other configuration file is located.

    prefix

This parameter can be set to gather all the files found under a common directory. See the description above for an example.

    include_dotfiles

By default, files will not be included if they begin with a dot. This goes both for files and for directories relative to the root.

In almost all cases, the default value (false) is correct.

    follow_symlinks

By default, directories that are symlinks will not be followed. Note on the other hand that in all followed directories, files which are symlinks are always gathered.

    exclude_filename

To exclude certain files from being gathered, use the exclude_filename option. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple files to exclude.

    exclude_match

This is just like exclude_filename but provides a regular expression pattern. Files matching the pattern are not gathered. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple patterns to exclude.
