  • Commented on The Moose::Role Required "attributes" Bug
    In theory, perhaps. In reality: over my dead body!...
  • Commented on Testing HTTP client code with Plack
    Cool! You can also use Test::LWP::UserAgent to mock a server that can return arbitrary responses, so you can test how your client handles the weird edge case errors....
  • Commented on We are all Perl's ambassadors...
    Maybe create some phase gates for new contributors? or create some kind of bar to get over before you can upload and even get rated in the first place? prepan.org exists as a place where authors can upload code...
  • Commented on Pod::Readme v1.0.2 released
    Integration with Pod::Weaver would be nice -- as that is an existing framework for allowing one to parse and mutate existing pod documents. I could see Pod::Readme being useful for inserting content that is only useful in a README, rather...
  • Commented on A pre-release of Pod::Readme is available on CPAN
    What limitations are there as a result of not using a full POD parser? Are there certain syntax elements that are not recognized, a depth limitation to nested elements, etc?...
  • Commented on CPAN Testers & pre-requisite reporting
    > The "DEVREL" prefix will be appended as soon as there is *anything* in the chain I like this a lot, and it's similar to what I was thinking too. However, I realize now there's a problem here -- the...
  • Commented on Test::More has lots of crazy new development that's breaking my modules
    > I don't think CPAN Testers is doing the right thing by using broken Test::More's that aren't available for normal installations. I strongly disagree. What if these Test::More changes *were* production ready? Receiving these failing reports, before Test::More sees a...
  • Commented on If your core perl documentation uses =encoding, please test the new perldoc release
    However, `perldoc Moose` does not -- the rendering of the right-to-left portion of Yuval's name (in the AUTHORS section) is garbled (the bullet appears at the end of the line; the parentheses are misplaced). This may be due to my...
  • Commented on If your core perl documentation uses =encoding, please test the new perldoc release
    `perldoc Acme::LookOfDisapproval` and `perldoc Acme::ಠ_ಠ` both look good :)...
  • Commented on I hate unpacking sub calls with shift
    > This one is very good: No, it's not - it uses Devel::Declare, which is a giant ball of crack that is actively discouraged by its authors and everyone who understands the improvements made in 5.14 that make this ball...
  • Commented on Data::Dumper Debugging
    I'm running OSX 10.8 and I have: GNU bash, version 3.2.48(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin10.0)...
  • Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
    There is a MooX::Role::Pluggable, which may serve your needs. But it's also not terribly difficult to write this bit of code manually, using Module::Pluggable....
  • Commented on Single-page POD for a distribution
    We need someone to add a split-screen feature to $favourite_browser_here....
  • Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
    One other thing, for Robert -- unless you're doing some really funky things with Moose, I'd suggest using Moo instead, as it is lighter weight and will run faster in a toolchain environment....
  • Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
    I see some great ideas here! Something you might want to look at for inspiration is Mike Doherty's https://metacpan.org/pod/Dist::Zilla::Plugin::InstallGuide (which I use in my plugin bundle) that generates an INSTALL file that contains simple install instructions using various cpan clients...
  • Commented on Quacks who write software make us all look bad
    Heh, I happened to see the headline of your reddit post about 5 seconds before skimming b.p.o, and went "whoa, everybody's talking about this guy today" :)...
  • Commented on Planet Moose - August 2014
    *lol* at the easter egg :)...
  • Commented on Please don't use ::Tiny unless it meets the ::Tiny criteria, thanks!
    > Maybe make a Dist::Zilla plugin to test for it all? https://metacpan.org/pod/Dist::Zilla::Plugin::OnlyCorePrereqs can check for one part of it. [Test::MinimumVersion] can test for another....
  • Commented on Give your module a good SEE ALSO section
    Something to remember for all of Neil's excellent posts in this series - if you don't have any distributions of your own that you can patch, you can patch other people's distributions!...
  • Commented on Classify your RT tickets on CPAN Day!
    This is, IMO, a problem with a lot of distributions......
  • Commented on Curating CPAN sometimes means really deleting stuff
    > Games::Golf Interesting! From the name alone, I might have thought that this was for scoring the *real* game of golf - calculating handicaps, comparing users against par for each hole, etc....
  • Commented on Don't be afraid to rename your module / dist
    Thanks Neil! For authors of modules in the MooseX:: or MooX:: namespace: please note that this namespace ought to be used only for Moose *extensions*. If your module is simply a role that happens to use Moose to provide attributes...
  • Commented on The 'right' name for your CPAN distribution
    Great points, Neil! Also - if your distribution could be named better, why not perform that renaming on CPAN Day (August 16)? :)...
  • Commented on perlbrew on OSX
    > As always ... it was down to me doing something daft. So it is for all of us :)...
  • Commented on The ghost of CPAN Days past
    I have a Task-Kensho-* release planned soon. Challenge accepted. :)...
  • Commented on How to Run a Single Test via Dist::Zilla
    There is a Build.PL in the repository for that dist, so you should be able to simply: perl Build.PL && ./Build && ./Build test -- or just perl Build.PL && ./Build && perl -Mblib t/foo.t....
  • Commented on Moose MonkeyPatching With a Mock UserAgent
    Nice! I've definitely used method modifiers (either directly in in Moose, if it's a Moose class, or otherwise using Class::Method::Modifiers) for targeted mocking - it feels a bit ugly, but it does do the job! :)...
  • Commented on Conflict Resolution: local::lib and git's Perl
    This seems like a strange problem - e.g. I use perlbrew and local::lib extensively, and always have PERL5LIB set, but I've never had an issue with git commands....
  • Commented on Giving up on weekly neoCPANisms
    > a release that was pushed on time but indexed and put on CPAN after the deadline Werd. This upload broke my once-a-day and neocpanism-a-week chains: Request entered on: Sat, 31 May 2014 23:59:10 GMT Request completed: Sun, 01 Jun...
  • Commented on When a fat comma is confusing
    heh, I thought about having map_response and some of the other interfaces accept more parameters, so as to add multiple mappings at once, but I never implemented it because of "YAGNI" - figuring it would be pretty easy for the...
