Metabase::Client::Simple(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Metabase::Client::Simple(3)

Metabase::Client::Simple - a client that submits to Metabase servers

version 0.012

  use Metabase::Client::Simple;
  use Metabase::User::Profile;
  use Metabase::User::Secret;
  my $profile = Metabase::User::Profile->load('user.profile.json');
  my $secret  = Metabase::User::Secret ->load('user.secret.json' );
  my $client = Metabase::Client::Simple->new({
    profile => $profile,
    secret  => $secret,
    uri     => '',
  my $fact = generate_metabase_fact;

Metabase::Client::Simple provides is extremely simple, lightweight library for submitting facts to a Metabase web server.

  my $client = Metabase::Client::Simple->new(\%arg)
This is the object constructor.
Valid arguments are:
  profile - a Metabase::User::Profile object
  secret  - a Metabase::User::Secret object
  uri     - the root URI for the metabase server
If you use a "uri" argument with the 'https' scheme, you must have IO::Socket::SSL and Net::SSLeay installed. You may also require Mozilla::CA.

This method will submit a Metabase::Fact object to the client's server. On success, it will return a true value. On failure, it will raise an exception.

This method will check whether the given GUID is found on the metabase server. The GUID must be in lower-case, string form. It will return true or false. Note that a server error will also result in a false value.

This method will submit the user credentials to the metabase server. It will be called automatically by "submit_fact" if necessary. You generally won't need to use it. On success, it will return a true value. On failure, it will raise an exception.
