MooseX::Aliases - easy aliasing of methods and attributes in Moose

version 0.11

    package MyApp;
    use Moose;
    use MooseX::Aliases;
    has this => (
        isa   => 'Str',
        is    => 'rw',
        alias => 'that',
    );
    sub foo { my $self = shift; print $self->that }
    alias bar => 'foo';
    my $o = MyApp->new();
    $o->this('Hello World');
    $o->bar; # prints 'Hello World'
or
    package MyApp::Role;
    use Moose::Role;
    use MooseX::Aliases;
    has this => (
        isa   => 'Str',
        is    => 'rw',
        alias => 'that',
    );
    sub foo { my $self = shift; print $self->that }
    alias bar => 'foo';

The MooseX::Aliases module will allow you to quickly alias methods in Moose. It provides an alias parameter for "has()" to generate aliased accessors as well as the standard ones. Attributes can also be initialized in the constructor via their aliased names.
You can create more than one alias at once by passing a arrayref:
    has ip_addr => (
        alias => [ qw(ipAddr ip) ],
    );

Installs ALIAS as a method that is aliased to the method METHODNAME.

    {
        package Parent;
        use Moose;
        use MooseX::Aliases;
        sub method1 { "A" }
        alias method2 => "method1";
    }
    {
        package Child1;
        use Moose;
        extends "Parent";
        sub method1 { "B" }
    }
    {
        package Child2;
        use Moose;
        extends "Parent";
        sub method2 { "C" }
    }
In the example above, Child1 overrides the method using its original name ("method1"). As a result, calling "method1" or "method2" returns "B". Child2 overrides the method using its alias ("method2"). As a result, calling "method2" returns "C", but calling "method1" falls through to the parent class, so returns "A".

    {
        package Class1;
        use Moose;
        use MooseX::Aliases;
        sub method1 { "A" }
        alias method2 => "method1";
        around method1 => sub { "B" };
    }
    {
        package Class2;
        use Moose;
        use MooseX::Aliases;
        sub method1 { "A" }
        alias method2 => "method1";
        around method2 => sub { "B" };
    }
In the example above, Class1's around modifier modifies the method using its original name. As a result, both "method1" and "method2" return "B". Class2's around modifier modifies the alias, so "method2" returns "B", but "method1" continues to return "A".
