( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am having a hard time finding documentation on the values in the META.yml file. I found documentation for META.json easily enough. I am specifically looking for the yml settings for the resources I have in the json file.

It rather sounds from this like you are writing these files yourself. That's almost never a good idea. Your build system should do that for you based upon the contents of Makefile.PL. Get Makefile.PL right and all the META files will follow without you having to lift a finger.

Also, what files in the repo should I add to .gitignore?

None. .gitignore is for specifying files to keep out of the repo. Here's a fairly standard one of mine - you will notice that the META files are listed here because I want to make sure that such transient files are not accidentally committed (hopefully this emphasises the point above).

/blib/ /.build/ _build/ cover_db/ inc/ Build !Build/ Build.bat .last_cover_stats /Makefile /Makefile.old /MANIFEST*.bak /META.yml /META.json /MYMETA.* nytprof.out /pm_to_blib *.o *.bs *.tmp *.swp

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
