  Description     : mock DateTime->now calls during tests

 Getting the current time sometimes is not very helpful for testing
 scenarios. Instead, if you could obtain a known value during the
 runtime of a testcase will make your results predictable.
 This module allows faking a given date and time for the runtime of a
 subsequent code block. By default the on keyword is exported into the
 namespace of the test file. The date to get mocked must be in a format
 that is recognized by DateTime::Format::DateParse.

This package is a dependency for Dancer2::Plugin::Auth::Extensible and
will be maintained under the Debian Perl Group umbrella.
