  • Is Perl still a relevant language to learn?
    Theres https://perldoc.perl.org/ and then https://metacpan.org/ for the 3rd party libraries.

    CPAN still adds a lot of value.

    In addition to using the perldoc command described earlier to understand locally-installed modules, you can use the MetaCPAN web site’s search engine (in both regular and regular expression flavors) to discover and learn how to save time piecing together programs instead of reinventing the wheel. I always check MetaCPAN first when I need to write some Perl.

    A little more MetaCPAN investigation yielded XML::Feed, also maintained by Dave, and it had the added benefit of obviating my need of XML::RSS by not only discovering feeds but also retrieving and parsing them. It also handles the Atom syndication format as well as RSS (hi daxim!). Putting it all together produces the following much shorter and clearer Perl:
  • [SURVEY] Visual update of meta::cpan ?
    reddit.com/r/perl | 2021-05-30
    I recently started to learn Perl (JS/TS is not fun anymore..) and came across metacpan.org I don't know, maybe just by intuition, I started to take a look at visuals of it, and decided to polished it a little bit during weekend.

    It’s a community effort; check the issues/PRs on GitHub and submit what you think will improve it.
  • CPANdeps end of life
    dev.to | 2021-05-04
    I have decided to retire it, for several reasons. First, metacpan has sprouted tentacles to do the dependency analysis. Second, the code is a mess and it needs quite a bit of work to cope with the current size of the CPAN-testers database. But third, and most importantly, the employer that I left over a year ago are withdrawing the free hosting.
  • Pair programming for the winner!
    dev.to | 2021-04-25
    You can also contact a CPAN developer if you are interested in Perl, a pypi developer if you are interested in Python, or an npm developer if you are interested in JavaScript/NodeJS. Tell them you'd like to contribute to their library X and ask them if they would agree to pair program with you on the subject? Maybe they will. Oh and you don't have to pick the author of the most popular package. Pick someone who is relatively unknown.

    Then there is the ADOPTME author on MetaCPAN. Unfortunately the HANDOFF and NEEDHELP search from MetaCPAN are not working well (and actually even the ADOPTME I sent you just above is incomplete). Maybe I have to propose a code change to MetaCPAN 😀
  • readable distro names and dates on metacpan

    I did. It wasn't hard.

  • The Perl complex topic of logos
    dev.to | 2021-04-01
    The logo has no license yet but Raul Matei gave the full rights on the image to MetaCPAN guys ("A license will be granted to the MetaCPAN team to use it in any way they see fit.") so they can license as they want if needed.

    Looks to me like both http://www.cpan.org/ and http://metacpan.org/ redirect to HTTPS versions. Which CPAN URL are you talking about?

    You will also need to install the following modules from the CPAN if you've not already done so.
  • Building a microservice in Perl, part 2: Up and running
    dev.to | 2021-03-03
    You may not want to store your definitions in a DB file in your project; consider making it a configurable option. Or use one of the many modules on CPAN to choose a completely different backend.
