    For some reason I just felt this deserved to be posted here.

  • Commented on Perl and Raspberry Pi
    Interesting, I wish I was in your city to see this. I have my own dormant project to build a quadrotor using Raspberry PI and Perl. I used the tiny PCA9685 chip coupled with Pi for controlling the brushless motors...
  • Commented on 100 CPAN Distributions + App-ManiacDownloader
    Sometimes updating Pod::Simple helps(I had to do that to get nested encoding errors), I also noticed your pod weaver puts =encoding utf8 message in the wrong place in Text::Widechar::Util package( i didn't look in your other distros but maybe they...
  • Commented on JSON and alternatives and an extension proposal
    There is actually a dirty way to send images over json, Just base64 encode the image and put it in the json object like so : perl -MMIME::Base64 -MFile::Slurp -E'say encode_base64 read_file "test.png"' and then decode using perl -MMIME::Base64 -MFile::Slurp...
  • Commented on 100 CPAN Distributions + App-ManiacDownloader
    Have you tested your Pod for your distributions? Metacpan sometimes doesn't pick distributions if there are certain Pod errors in it, cpan.org might forgive similar errors. You should check cpants on your distributions missing from metacpan.org. I had a similar...
  • Commented on Fancy writing a Dist::Zilla plugin?
    Hi Neil, Good to see that you are still pushing through on the quest! I use the following module to get a Changes file from git commits: Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ChangelogFromGit::CPAN::Changes There used to be a issue for distributions that were not following...
  • Commented on What are the files in a CPAN distribution?
    Thats a useful thread but a nice addition in the thread would be some explanation about the /corpus folder :)...
  • Commented on Memcached to the rescue
    Here is the problem that I see with these caching solutions. Why write so much code to retrieve one cached value??? my $content = $cache->get($key); unless ($content) { process_request(); $cache->store($key, $content); } $content = $cache->get($key); 5 lines to get one...
  • Commented on Confessions of a Dist::Zilla newbie
    Welcome back!! Dzil has a steeper learning curve as I myself learnt a few months ago but it helps you to keep your repository clean if you use the right plugins you don't have to keep makefiles, READMEs etc. in...
  • Commented on Perl Programming Certificate
    nevertheless this is the first time I heard of it. I might try my hand at the advanced or applied. its always good to brush up things, gives you a perspective on what you've learned since the last time you...
  • Commented on Params::Validate::Dependencies
    Thanks I will take a look. Is this something on the lines of Moose::Role for non Moose packages?...
  • Commented on A compelling reason for Perl6
    @perldreamer I just checked out WEBGUI. That looks great! It does need more convenient way to add plugins and extensions. Personally I would like to see a CMS that can remotely download and install new plugins from a repo at...
  • Commented on A compelling reason for Perl6
    Nice article, but I disagree on the need to have a web framework with tighter integration with client libraries like Jquery? I think thats the kind of work to be left to a CMS? On that note we do need...
  • Commented on Bangalore.pm meetup 6th August 2011
    Thanks guys! We are working hard for this. In time we will have critical mass, then we can breath easy. :) @Erez Thanks for your wishes for the Bangalore Royal Challengers :)...
  • Commented on Acme::CPANAuthors::India

  • Posted Bangalore.pm meetup 6th August 2011 to Shantanu Bhadoria

  • Commented on CPAN modules for generating passwords
    The problem with that option is that its not always the same platform. Not all platforms will support `pwgen`. Using command line interfaces makes the code highly platform dependent. It might work in cases where thats not an issue however....
  • Posted Acme::CPANAuthors::India to Shantanu Bhadoria

    I just released the Acme::CPANAuthors::India today, Its based on the Acme::CPANAuthors. There are similar pre-existing modules for other countries and especially extensive ones for most of europe in the Acme::CPANAuthors::* namespace but…

  • Posted File::UStore a UUID based File Storage Abstractor, Why would a temp folder not be writable??? to Shantanu Bhadoria

    Its been a few months since I released the File::UStore module to cpan and it has gradually attained stability over time. Not that there were a lot of bugs to begin with. Most of the bugs were in the tests rather…

    Shantanu,

    I am happy to report that with my dzil bundle reconfigured, I am at full spec compliance now :)

    Excellent - good man!

  • JT Smith commented on Perl and Raspberry Pi

    We'll post the slides to madmongers.org after the talk. Not as good as being there, but better than nothing.

  • Shlomi Fish commented on 100 CPAN Distributions + App-ManiacDownloader

    chimerix: aria2 does indeed seems interesting and it has implemented my "secret sauce". However, its granularity is limited to one megabyte of data, while Maniac Downloader goes down to 8 KB or 4 KB, and I was told by someone that it didn't improve the download speed. Furthermore, its integration with Mageia’s urpmi seems lacking because downloading with it does not display the progress of the download which is frustrating (but I suppose this can be fixed in urpmi’s side). Anyway, I will mention aria2 as a viable alternative on various places.

  • Shlomi Fish commented on 100 CPAN Distributions + App-ManiacDownloader

    Hi Zak. I have been familiar with lftp (having used it after the demise of ncftp) but I wasn't aware it supported split downloading and HTTP/HTTPS . I'll take a better look at it now as well. Thanks!

  • Raspberry Pi Kits commented on Perl and Raspberry Pi

    Just had a flick through the slides, this looks interesting, I can't wait to have a go! So far I've only used Python with the Raspberry Pi.
