NAME

Dist::Zilla::Role::ArchiveBuilder - something that builds archives

VERSION

version 6.024

DESCRIPTION

Plugins implementing this role have their build_archive method called when it is time to build the archive.

PERL VERSION

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.

METHODS

build_archive

This method takes three arguments, and returns a Path::Tiny instance containing the path to the archive.

archive_basename

This is the name of the archive (including -TRIAL if appropriate) without the format extension (that is the .tar.gz part). The plugin implementing this role should add the appropriate full path including extension as the returned Path::Tiny instance. Not including the extension allows the plugin to choose its own format.

built_in

This is a Path::Tiny where the distribution has been built.

dist_basename

This method will return the dist's basename (e.g. Dist-Name-1.01 as a Path::Tiny. The basename is used as the top-level directory in the tarball. It does not include -TRIAL, even if building a trial dist.
