Subject: How to create new distribution from scratch

How does one create My::Awesome::App from scratch? With Module::Starter it would go something like: module-starter --module My::Awesome::App I assumed the Dist::Zilla equivalent would be: dzil new My::Awesome::App But that appears to throw an error. shell:~/Desktop/dist-zilla$ dzil new My::Awesome::App ARRAY(0x8bc4cbc) Can't call method "flatten" on an undefined value at /Users/io1/Applications/Perl/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/Dist/Zilla/App.pm line 35, <DATA> line 1. I believe this information should be in the documentation but I did not find it. Environment details: Dist-Zilla-1.003 perl v5.10.0 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.1: Wed Oct 10 18:23:28 PDT 2007; root:xnu-792.25.20~1/RELEASE_I386 i386 i
Hi, My apologies for the earlier bug report. As it turns out it does say in the docs that you *need* code to build. It does not say much about "dzil new" mentioned in your presentation http://www.slideshare.net/rjbs/distzilla-presentation but I discovered that if I create an empty ~/.dzil/config file that it does work. I still get the following bugs/errors/warnings: 1 - Creating a new app % dzil new My::App ARRAY(0x1a6c330) # I doubt the output "ARRAY(0x1a6c330)" is intentional here. 2 - Building the new app % dzil build|test ... couldn't find a place to insert VERSION section to lib/My/App.pm ... Also it seems to ignore the contents of ~/.dzil/config but I'm probably doing something wrong there. Mine currently contains: % cat ~/.dzil/config initial_version=0.0.1 default_license=Perl_5 I guessed these from the source code of Dist::Zilla::App::Command::new. New apps still get created with an initial version of "1.000". Everything else works like a charm though. I guess what I'm asking for is a bit more documentation/information on how to configure Dist::Zilla. I'd send a draft in myself but I'm obviously not fully clued up on how to use it. Thank you.

the ARRAY logging issue should be sorted 'dzil new' is sort of lame right now, but will get better documentation as it matures. To be perfectly honest, I just mkdir, write code, and copy in a dist.ini from elsewhere to edit. -- rjbs
