Dist::Zilla spewing flames...

blue_cowdawg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

So, it's been a while since I used Dist::Zilla last and so I tried to start a new project with it this morning and it spewed all over itself. What in the world are these errors trying to tell me and what am I supposed to do to fix things?

    dispite the fact that this output reminds me at these ugly Java stacktraces, the very first line says much:

    'Dist::Zilla::Role::File' requires the methods 'encoded_content' and ' +encoding' to be implemented by 'Dist::Zilla::File::Generated'

    Without knowing the details, but Dist::Zilla::File::Generated is from 2012 and Dist::Zilla has undergone many many changes since that time. I'm pretty sure that Dist::Zilla::File::Generated doesn't fulfill the API of current Dist::Zilla anymore. Probably you can replace that plugin.


      I tried that.

      root@MyMachine:~# cpanm Dist::Zilla::File::Generated Dist::Zilla::File::Generated is up to date. (0.0.6) root@MyMachine:~#

        I think replace isn’t the same as update in this case :P The package seems to have some issues; I couldn’t build/install it at all–

         PASS (88)   FAIL (54)

        Maybe try a reinstall and see if it gives you grief and work back from there?

        cpanm Dist::Zilla::File::Generated --reinstall -v
