NAME

Module::Build::Tiny - A tiny replacement for Module::Build

VERSION

version 0.039

SYNOPSIS

use Module::Build::Tiny;
Build_PL();

DESCRIPTION

Many Perl distributions use a Build.PL file instead of a Makefile.PL file to drive distribution configuration, build, test and installation. Traditionally, Build.PL uses Module::Build as the underlying build system. This module provides a simple, lightweight, drop-in replacement.

Whereas Module::Build has over 6,700 lines of code; this module has less than 120, yet supports the features needed by most distributions.

Supported

Not Supported

Directory structure

Your .pm and .pod files must be in lib/. Any executables must be in script/. Test files must be in t/. Dist sharedirs must be in share/.

USAGE

These all work pretty much like their Module::Build equivalents.

perl Build.PL

Build [ build ]

Build test

Build install

This supports the following options:

AUTHORING

This module doesn't support authoring. To develop modules using Module::Build::Tiny, usage of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ModuleBuildTiny or App::ModuleBuildTiny is recommended.

CONFIG FILE AND ENVIRONMENT

Options can be provided in the PERL_MB_OPT environment variable the same way they can with Module::Build. This should be done during the configuration stage.
