MooseX::App::Simple(3) Single command applications


package MyApp;
use MooseX::App::Simple qw(Config Color);

parameter 'param' => (
is => 'rw',
isa => 'Str',
documentation => q[First parameter],
required => 1,
); # Positional parameter

option 'my_option' => (
is => 'rw',
isa => 'Bool',
documentation => q[Enable this to do fancy stuff],
); # Option (--my_option)

has 'private' => (
is => 'rw',
); # not exposed

sub run {
my ($self) = @_;
# Do something

And then in some simple wrapper script:

 #!/usr/bin/env perl
 use MyApp;


MooseX-App-Simple works basically just as MooseX::App, however it does not search for commands and assumes that you have all options and parameters defined in the current class.

Read the Tutorial for getting started with a simple MooseX::App command line application.



 my $myapp_command = MyApp->new_with_options();

This method reads the command line arguments from the user and tries to create instantiate the current class with the ARGV-input. If it fails it returns a MooseX::App::Message::Envelope object holding an error message.

You can pass a hash or hashref of default params to new_with_options

 MyApp->new_with_options( %default );

Optionally you can pass a custom ARGV to this constructor

 my $obj = MyApp->new_with_options( ARGV => \@myARGV );

However, if you do so you must take care of propper @ARGV encoding yourself.


Same as in MooseX::App


Same as in MooseX::App. However plugings adding commands (eg. version) will not work with MooseX::App::Simple.
