Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaCPANInterfacer - something that will interact with MetaCPAN's API
# in your plugin/etc. code with 'Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaCPANInterfacer'; my $obj = $self->mcpan->fetch(...);
This role is simply gives you a MetaCPAN::API object to use with caching, so that other plugins can share that cache. It uses the awesome example provided in the "SYNOPSIS" in MetaCPAN::API, contributed by Kent Fredric.
All of these attributes are f'ing lazy, because they like to sit around the house. They are also read-write, as this is a role, and you might want to change around the defaults.
mcpan_uaas the Tiny user agent
mcpan_mechuaas the Mechanized user agent
mcpan_cacheas the cache attribute, and some UA string changes.
The caching stuff could potentially be split, but frankly, none of the existing plugins really need caching all that much. I've at least called the
.webcache directory a generic name, so feel free to re-use it.
(Honestly, the only reason why this is a DZ module IS the caching directory name...)
Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Prereqs, which uses this quite a bit.
