NAME

       Test2::Plugin - Documentation for plugins

DESCRIPTION

       Plugins are packages that cause behavior changes, or other side effects for the test file
       that loads them. They should not export any functions, or provide any tools. Plugins
       should be distinct units of functionality.

       If you wish to combine behavior changes with tools then you should write a Plugin, a Tools
       module, and a bundle that loads them both.

FAQ

       Should I subclass Test2::Plugin?
           No. Currently this class is empty. Eventually we may want to add behavior, in which
           case we do not want anyone to already be subclassing it.

HOW DO I WRITE A PLUGIN?

       Writing a plugin is not as simple as writing an Test2::Bundle, or writing Test2::Tools.
       Plugins alter behavior, or cause desirable side-effects. To accomplish this you typically
       need a custom "import()" method that calls one or more functions provided by the
       Test2::API package.

       If you want to write a plugin you should look at existing plugins, as well as the
       Test2::API and Test2::Hub documentation. There is no formula for a Plugin, they are
       generally unique, however consistent rules are that they should not load other plugins, or
       export any functions.
