NAME
Git::Repository::Plugin - Base class for Git::Repository plugins SYNOPSIS
package Git::Repository::Plugin::Hello; use Git::Repository::Plugin; our @ISA = qw( Git::Repository::Plugin ); sub _keywords { return qw( hello hello_gitdir ) } sub hello { return "Hello, git world! "; } sub hello_gitdir { return "Hello, " . $_[0]->git_dir . "! "; } 1; DESCRIPTION
"Git::Repository::Plugin" allows one to define new methods for "Git::Repository", that will be imported in the "Git::Repository" namespace. The SYNOPSIS provides a full example. The documentation of Git::Repository describes how to load plugins with all the methods they provide, or only a selection of them. METHODS
"Git::Repository::Plugin" provides a single method: install( @keywords ) Install all keywords provided in the "Git::Repository" namespace. If called with an empty list, will install all available keywords. SUBCLASSING
When creating a plugin, the new keywords that are added by the plugin to "Git::Repository" must be returned by a "_keywords()" method. AUTHOR
Philippe Bruhat (BooK), "<book at cpan.org>" ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Thanks to Todd Rinalo, who wanted to add more methods to "Git::Repository", which made me look for a solution that would preserve the minimalism of "Git::Repository". After a not-so-good design using @ISA (so "Git::Repository" would inherit the extra methods), further discussions with Aristotle Pagaltzis and a quick peek at Dancer's plugin management helped me come up with the current design. Thank you Aristotle and the Dancer team. Further improvements to the plugin system proposed by Aristotle Pagaltzis. COPYRIGHT
