Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::Easy - something that bundles a bunch of plugins easily


version 6.024


  package Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Example;
  use Moose;
  with 'Dist::Zilla::Role::PluginBundle::Easy';
  sub configure {
    my $self = shift;


This role builds upon the PluginBundle role, adding methods to take most of the grunt work out of creating a bundle. It supplies the "bundle_config" method for you. In exchange, you must supply a "configure" method, which will store the bundle's configuration in the "plugins" attribute by calling "add_plugins" and/or "add_bundle".


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.



This is the bundle name, taken from the Section passed to "bundle_config".


This hashref contains the bundle's parameters (if any), taken from the Section passed to "bundle_config".


This arrayref contains the configuration that will be returned by "bundle_config". You normally modify this by using the "add_plugins" and "add_bundle" methods.



  $self->add_plugins('Plugin1', [ Plugin2 => \%plugin2config ])

Use this method to add plugins to your bundle.

It is passed a list of plugin specifiers, which can be one of a few things:

  • a plugin moniker (like you might provide in your config file)
  • an arrayref of: "[ $moniker, $plugin_name, \%plugin_config ]"

In the case of an arrayref, both $plugin_name and "\%plugin_config" are optional.

The plugins are added to the config in the order given.


  $self->add_bundle(BundleName => \%bundle_config)

Use this method to add all the plugins from another bundle to your bundle. If you omit %bundle_config, an empty hashref will be supplied.


  $hash_ref = $self->config_slice(arg1, { arg2 => 'plugin_arg2' })

Use this method to extract parameters from your bundle's "payload" so that you can pass them to a plugin or subsidiary bundle. It supports easy renaming of parameters, since a plugin may expect a parameter name that's too generic to be suitable for a bundle.

Each arg is either a key in "payload", or a hashref that maps keys in "payload" to keys in the hash being constructed. If any specified key does not exist in "payload", then it is omitted from the result.
