Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::SkipInstall - skip the install rule of MakeMaker
This small plugin will edit the
Makefile.PLfile, and override the install target to become a no-op.
This will make your module fail the install phase. It will be built, and tested but will never be installed.
The most common use for this techinique is for Task modules. Without a proper install phase, you can install your Task module repetedly.
The technique was described by Marcel Gruenauer (hanekomu) in his article "Repeatedly installing Task::* distributions":
The author just wrapped the concept into a Dist::Zilla plugin.
