Dist::Zilla::Plugin::DistINI(3) a plugin to add a dist.ini to newly-minted dists


version 4.300020


This plugins produces a dist.ini file in a new dist, specifying the required core attributes from the dist being minted.

This plugin is dead simple and pretty stupid, but should get better as dist minting facilities improve. For example, it will not specify any plugins.

In the meantime, you may be happier with a dist.ini template.



This parameter may be a filename in the profile's directory to append to the generated dist.ini with things like plugins. In other words, if your make this file, called plugins.ini:


...and your profile.ini includes:

  append_file = plugins.ini

...then the generated "dist.ini" in a newly-minted dist will look something like this:

  name    = My-New-Dist
  author  = E. Xavier Ample <[email protected]>
  license = Perl_5
  copyright_holder = E. Xavier Ample
  copyright_year   = 2010
