Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new - mint a new dist


version 6.017


Creates a new Dist-Zilla based distribution under the current directory.

  $ dzil new Main::Module::Name

There are two arguments, "-p" and "-P". "-P" specify the minting profile provider and "-p" - the profile name.

The default profile provider first looks in the ~/.dzil/profiles/$profile_name and then among standard profiles, shipped with Dist::Zilla. For example:

  $ dzil new -p work Corporate::Library

This command would instruct "dzil" to look in ~/.dzil/profiles/work for a profile.ini (or other "profile" config file). If no profile name is given, "dzil" will look for the "default" profile. If no default directory exists, it will use a very simple configuration shipped with Dist::Zilla.

  $ dzil new -P Foo Corporate::Library

This command would instruct "dzil" to consult the Foo provider about the directory of 'default' profile.

Furthermore, it is possible to specify the default minting provider and profile in the ~/.dzil/config.ini file, for example:

  provider = FooCorp
  profile = work
