in reply to MooseX::SimpleConfig: role attribute cannot be made lazy

The problem is that MooseX::ConfigFromFile (the "parent" role of MooseX::SimpleConfig) is doing some pretty odd stuff with the configfile attribute, such as trying to call the default before an instance has been created (see here for details). What you are trying to do simply won't work because of this. Probably the simplest alternative is to do something like:

#!/usr/bin/perl package My::Config; use Moose; with 'MooseX::SimpleConfig'; sub new_from_config_shortname { my ($class, $filename) = @_; $class->new_from_config( configfile => '/some/path/' . $filename . + ".yaml" ); } my $config = My::Config->new_from_config_shortname("config");
Obviously shorten 'new_from_config_shortname' to something more appropriate, but that should give you what you want.

    Thank you, this works - except the call to "new_from_config" should read "new_with_config"

    Should this be reported as an error in MooseX::SimpleConfig?

      You can, but the original author is mostly AWOL and the maintainer might not be interested in untangling this mess. If nothing more it can become a documentation caveat.
