MooX::Press is a quick way of building a bunch of Moo roles and classes in one use statement.

The most basic example would be:

package MyApp { use MooX::Press class => ['Foo', 'Bar']; } my $thing1 = MyApp::Foo->new(); my $thing2 = MyApp->new_foo(); # alternative constructor

But do-nothing classes with a constructor and nothing else aren't very exciting. Let's define a class with some subclasses which have attributes and roles and methods and stuff.

package MyApp::Zoo; use MooX::Press ( role => [ 'Aquatic' => { can => [ swim => sub { print "swimming\n" }, ], }, 'Flight', ], class => [ 'Animal' => { has => [qw( $name $colour $age )], subclass => [ 'Fish' => { with => 'Aquatic', subclass => [qw( Shark Ray )], }, 'Bird' => { with => 'Flight' }, 'Mammal' => { subclass => [ qw( Panda Goat ), 'Kangaroo' => { can => [ jump => sub { ... } ] }, 'Dolphin' => { with => 'Aquatic' }, 'Bat' => { with => 'Flight' }, ], }, ], }, ], );

The above code just defined the following roles:

  • MyApp::Zoo::Aquatic
  • MyApp::Zoo::Flight

And the following classes:

  • MyApp::Zoo::Animal
  • MyApp::Zoo::Fish
  • MyApp::Zoo::Shark
  • MyApp::Zoo::Ray
  • MyApp::Zoo::Bird
  • MyApp::Zoo::Mammal
  • MyApp::Zoo::Panda
  • MyApp::Zoo::Goat
  • MyApp::Zoo::Kangaroo
  • MyApp::Zoo::Dolphin
  • MyApp::Zoo::Bat

All with the appropriate attributes and roles applied to them.

Also, it defined a package called MyApp::Zoo::Types with class and role type constraints already set up.

So you can do:

use Moo; use MyApp::Zoo::Types qw(Kangaroo); has mascot => (is => 'ro', isa => Kangaroo);


use MyApp::Zoo::Types qw(is_Kangaroo); $thing->jump if is_Kangaroo($thing);

Here's some more code using our zoo classes...

use MyApp::Zoo (); my $lenny = MyApp::Zoo->new_shark(name => 'Lenny'); $lenny->isa('MyApp::Zoo::Shark'); # true $lenny->isa('MyApp::Zoo::Fish'); # true $lenny->isa('MyApp::Zoo::Animal'); # true $lenny->does('MyApp::Zoo::Aquatic'); # true $lenny->can('swim'); # true package MyApp::Zoo::Enclosure::Tank { use Moo; use Types::Standard qw(ArrayRef); use MyApp::Zoo::Types qw(Aquatic); has animals => ( is => 'rw', isa => ArrayRef[Aquatic], ); } my $tank = MyApp::Zoo::Enclosure::Tank->new( animals => [ $lenny ], );

MooX::Press is on CPAN.
