  • Posted Keeping a Reasonable Number of Incremental Backups to mo

    My servers are backed up using a little script that works just like Apple's TimeMachine. Every day a backup job moves the latest backup to a folder named by the date of its creation and creates a new backup in the folder latest. Rsync has a nifty feature that…

  • Commented on Filtering CPAN results by release date
    metacpan uses ElasticSearch which uses Lucene. So https://metacpan.org/search?q=template+file.date%3A%5B2012+TO+NOW%5D just works. See http://lucene.apache.org/core/oldversioneddocs/versions/291/queryparsersyntax.html for more and http://api.metacpan.org/file/_mapping for available fields....
  • Commented on Exciting updates to MetaCPAN
    Hi Matthias, the tool is called Munin and it monitors all kinds of stuff. I set it ups so that it requests metacpan.org/recent every five minutes....
  • Commented on Exciting updates to MetaCPAN
    Hi Mike, you can still use the author.json file. They both coexist. The one with the more recent time stamp wins....
  • Posted Exciting updates to MetaCPAN to mo

    MetaCPAN went live with the switch over to Catalyst (previously we hadn't been using a framework at all) this morning.

    The main aim was to make it easier for people to contribute and also to extend.

  • Commented on Introducing metacpan.org - A better search for the CPAN
    Hi Ben, thanks for your feedback. Regarding the page flickering, can you tell me on which OS/browser this is happening? I don't see it with Firefox or Chrome. Cheers, mo...
  • Commented on Introducing metacpan.org - A better search for the CPAN
    Hi John, search.metacpan.org is an early prototype for a JS-only interface for the API. We decided to work on a new front-end that doesn't rely on javascript. While the JS-only approach is nice, there a several problems with it. Site...
  • Posted Introducing metacpan.org - A better search for the CPAN to mo

    I'm very excited to announce the front end for MetaCPAN: metacpan.org. This is what you can expect from the new interface to the CPAN:


    • New uploads instantly a…

  • Commented on GitHub-like activity indicator for authors and distributions
    There have been some significant changes to MetaCPAN. search.metacpan.org still relies on the old/current api which can be found at api.metacpan.org. The new api is currently in a beta phase and available at api.beta.metacpan.org. beta.metacpan.org provides a more conservative and...
  • Posted GitHub-like activity indicator for authors and distributions to mo

    (Note: open the post to see the indicators. blogs.perl.org doesn't show them on the summary page)

    Indexing the whole CPAN to the beta version of MetaCPAN just finished. Here is one example of what you can do with the data available from MetaCPAN:

  • Posted First week of GSoC and progress made with MetaCPAN to mo

    As you might have heard, my MetaCPAN project has been accepted for the Google Summer of Code. If you are unfamiliar with the proposal, you can find it here.

    The first few weeks are called the "bonding per…

  • Commented on Improving the CPAN experience (a GSoC summer tale)
    Thanks Shlomi. That are some useful resources!...
  • Posted Improving the CPAN experience (a GSoC summer tale) to mo

    What will MetaCPAN offer that other services don’t?

    • Instant availability (new uploads are indexed within a minute)
    • Personalisation - “follow your favourites”
    • Searchable metadata
    • Mashup of other CPAN related servic…
  • Commented on Perl.com - initial relaunch
    I was just looking at http://www.google.de/search?num=50&q=site%3Awww.perl.com and only 2 of the first ten results don't deliver a 404. Seems like these URLs are dead already....
  • Commented on Perl.com - initial relaunch
    I'd say either perl.org or perl.com has to go. Redirect perl.com to perl.org and nobody is confused anymore. Why do we need two separate pages about perl? Where from the domain name alone nobody can tell the difference in content....
