Which Signatures module to use (with Moose and Moo)?

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

Greetings!

Irrelevant background: I have lots of fun writing a hobby application, which I need to keep small. (I plan to let users install it even on Windows (PAR::Packer), if my girlfriend lets me borrow her computer to test.) So I'm trying out Moo, which I saw used on CPAN.

Question: what is the "standard" Signatures library on CPAN today? Or rather, I have three sub questions. What are the default signature modules with:

  1. Moose? (MooseX::Method::Signatures?)
  2. Standalone? (Method::Signatures::Simple? signatures?)
  3. Moo? (Presumably the same as for Standalone?)

The most relevant node I found was How can I make perltidy work with Method::Signatures?, where swartz++ got a patch into perltidy for /Method::Signatures(::Simple)?/.

Thanks

    There is none, all of them have their benefits and drawbacks. For the record, the Moose community has no preference. And MooseX::Method::Signatures is part of MooseX::Declare which is still considered an "experiment" by many (including much of the Moose core dev team).

    So I'm trying out Moo, which I saw used on CPAN.

    Do not let a few brave souls lead you to believe that Moo is a not still highly experimental. I would be very wary of deploying something so young as Moo, I would lead more towards the pure-perl version of Mouse which is much more mature.

      Thanks for the answer. I will go with Method::Signatures::Simple in the end. (I would have liked signatures for functions.) Now I just need to see if someone has updated CPerl mode in Emacs (edit: to recognize the 'method' instead of just 'sub').

      Re Moo -- I am writing a hobby hack; a bit experimental sounds OK. :-) Also, if there are problems -- as far as I can tell, it should be quite easy to switch to Moose/Mouse.
