in reply to Re^4: Moose and default values
in thread Moose and default values

It's nice (and only 10 lines of code :-=).

But say I now wanted not only undefs but everything that is false (e.g. also an empty string) to trigger the default?

Does Moose not have any mechanics for that?

    Maybe something along the lines of:

    around BUILDARGS => sub { my $orig = shift; my $self = shift; my $params = $self->$orig(@_); $params->{$_} || delete $params->{$_} for qw/ foo bar /; return $params; };

    This will discard false parameters for the "foo" and "bar" attributes.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
      Sure you can always hack togther something, I was more looking for a way to do such things declaratively...

      But your Haskell-ripoff is a at least a step forward - thanks.

        With enough hacking you can make anything look declarative!

        use v5.14; use strict; use warnings; # Ugly hack code # package MooseX::AttributeShouldIgnoreFalse { BEGIN { $INC{'MooseX/'} = __FILE__ }; use Sub::Exporter -setup => { exports => ['attribute_should_ignore_false'], groups => { default => ['attribute_should_ignore_false'], }, }; sub attribute_should_ignore_false { my @attrs = @_; my $meta = (scalar caller)->meta; $meta->add_around_method_modifier(BUILDARGS => sub { my $orig = shift; my $self = shift; my $parm = $self->$orig(@_); $parm->{$_} || delete $parm->{$_} for @attrs; $parm; }); } } # Lovely declarative code # package Foo { use Moose; use MooseX::AttributeShouldIgnoreFalse; has foo => (is => 'ro', default => 'whatever'); attribute_should_ignore_false 'foo'; } my $value = 'hello'; print Foo->new(foo => $value)->dump; $value = ''; print Foo->new(foo => $value)->dump;
        package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
