NAME App::podweaver - Run Pod::Weaver on the files within a distribution. VERSION version 1.00 SYNOPSIS App::podweaver provides a mechanism to run Pod::Weaver over the files within a distribution, without needing to use Dist::Zilla. Where Dist::Zilla works on a copy of your source code, App::podweaver is intended to modify your source code directly, and as such it is highly recommended that you use the Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::ReplaceBoilerplate plugin bundle so that you over-write existing POD sections, instead of the default Pod::Weaver behaviour of repeatedly appending. You can configure the Pod::Weaver invocation by providinng a `weaver.ini' file in the root directory of your distribution. INSTALLATION To install this module, run the following commands: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install BOOTSTRAPPING WITH META.json/META.yml Since the META.json/yml file is often generated with an abstract extracted from the POD, and App::podweaver expects a valid META file for some of the information to insert into the POD, there's a chicken-and-egg situation on the first invocation of either. Running App::podweaver first should produce a POD with an abstract line populated from your `# ABSTRACT:' header, but without additional sections like version and authors. You can then generate your META file as per usual, and then run App::podweaver again to produce the missing sections: $ ./Build distmeta Creating META.yml ERROR: Missing required field 'dist_abstract' for metafile $ podweaver -v No META.json or META.yml file found, are you running in a distribution directory? Processing lib/App/podweaver.pm $ ./Build distmeta Creating META.yml $ podweaver -v Processing lib/App/podweaver.pm This should only be neccessary on newly created distributions as both the META and the neccessary POD abstract should be present subsequently.
