NAME
Dist::Zilla::Plugin::GatherDir - gather all the files in a directory VERSION
version 4.300020 DESCRIPTION
This is a very, very simple FileGatherer plugin. It looks in the directory named in the "root" attribute and adds all the files it finds there. If the root begins with a tilde, the tilde is replaced with the current user's home directory according to File::HomeDir. Almost every dist will be built with one GatherDir plugin, since it's the easiest way to get files from disk into your dist. Most users just need: [GatherDir] ...and this will pick up all the files from the current directory into the dist. You can use it multiple times, as you can any other plugin, by providing a plugin name. For example, if you want to include external specification files into a subdir of your dist, you might write: [GatherDir] ; this plugin needs no config and gathers most of your files [GatherDir / SpecFiles] ; this plugin gets all the files in the root dir and adds them under ./spec root = ~/projects/my-project/spec prefix = spec ATTRIBUTES
root This is the directory in which to look for files. If not given, it defaults to the dist root -- generally, the place where your dist.ini or other configuration file is located. prefix This parameter can be set to gather all the files found under a common directory. See the description above for an example. include_dotfiles By default, files will not be included if they begin with a dot. This goes both for files and for directories relative to the "root". In almost all cases, the default value (false) is correct. follow_symlinks By default, directories that are symlinks will not be followed. Note on the other hand that in all followed directories, files which are symlinks are always gathered. exclude_filename To exclude certain files from being gathered, use the "exclude_filename" option. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple files to exclude. exclude_match This is just like "exclude_filename" but provides a regular expression pattern. Files matching the pattern are not gathered. This may be used multiple times to specify multiple patterns to exclude. AUTHOR
