  • What's the overall steps needs to make a customized version of Strawberry? Just subclass it's class, and add dists to the list?

    I'd like to have a go at replacing my CatInABox zipped dist folder with a real Perl::Dist that I can rebuild and keep updated that contains a complete running Catalyst install with all the trimmings.
    • I'm working on documentation for Perl::Dist as we speak, and it will include a cookbook example of making a sub-class (yes, a subclass is all you need).

      But completely off the top of my head (and probably a bit buggy) it would look something like this.

      package Perl::Dist::CatInABox;

      use strict;
      use base 'Perl::Dist::Strawberry';

      sub app_name { 'Catalyst In a Box' }
      sub app_ver_name { 'Catalyst In a Box December 2007' }
      sub app_publisher { 'Catalyst' }
