Mite::Manual::Workflow - how to work with Mite

=head1 MANUAL

=head2 1. Install Mite

Only developers must have Mite installed.  Install it normally from
CPAN.

Do not declare Mite as a dependency.  It is not needed to install your
release.

=head2 2. mite init <Your::Project>

Initialize your project.  Tell it your project name.

This will create a F<.mite> directory and a shim file in F<lib>.

=head2 3. Write your code using your mite shim.

Instead of C<use Mite>, you should C<use Your::Project::Mite>.  The
name of this file will depend on the name of your project.

L<Mite> is a subset of L<Moose>.

=head2 4. C<mite compile> after each change

Mite is "compiled" in that the code must be processed after editing
before you run it.  This is done by running C<mite compile>.  It will
create F<.mite.pm> files for each F<.pm> file in F<lib>.

To make development smoother, we provide utility modules to link Mite
with the normal build process.  See L<Mite::MakeMaker> and
L<Mite::ModuleBuild> for MakeMaker/F<Makefile.PL> and
Module::Build/F<Build.PL> development respectively.

=head2 5. Make sure the F<.mite> directory is not in your MANIFEST.

The F<.mite> directory should not be shipped with your distribution.
Add C<^\.mite$> to your F<MANIFEST.SKIP> file.

=head2 6. Make sure the mite files are in your MANIFEST.

The compiled F<.mite.pm> files must ship with your code, so make sure
they get picked up in your F<MANIFEST> file.  This should happen when
you build the F<MANIFEST> normally.

=head2 7. Ship normally

Build and ship your distribution normally.  It contains everything it
needs.
