App::ShaderToy - just a quick preview of things to come

This is just a quick preview to convey my excitement:

Hopefully I find time to write up the progress from the last few weeks soon!

C::Blocks Advent Day 12

This is the C::Blocks Advent Calendar, in which I release a new treat each day about the C::Blocks library. Yesterday I compared C::Blocks to other TinyCC-based Perl libraries. Today I will focus on a fun diversion: hacking on the parser with a bit of C::Blocks code.

I must admit that some of yesterday's results have me a bit depressed. I've put a lot of work into this library, and I am really surprised and worried about the performance cliffs I illustrated yesterday. Today, though, we're going to have some fun.

Dancer2 0.204002 is now available, fixes public_dir option, adds plugin convenience

Your early holiday gift from the Dancer Core Team has arrived - Dancer2 0.204002 is on its way to your favorite CPAN mirror. This release provides the following:

  • A fix for public_dir: When using public_dir , Dancer2 now waits for the configuration to be read before deciding where static content should be served from
  • A new plugin helper method, find_plugin(), that lets you import another plugin’s DSL for use in your own custom plugin
  • A variety of documentation fixes and enhancements

Make sure to check out the Dancer Advent Calendar! It features a number of great articles not only from the Dancer Core Team, but a number of our community members too.

The Dancer Core Team would like to thank all of our contributors and community members for another great year. Simply put, you are the reason we keep working hard at Dancer, and we are grateful to have such a great community of users and developers around us. Here’s to a great 2017… Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season!

C::Blocks Advent Day 11

This is the C::Blocks Advent Calendar, in which I release a new treat each day about the C::Blocks library. Yesterday I explained how to use C::Blocks in multithreaded Perl code. Today I will compare C::Blocks to other TinyCC-based Perl libraries.

Cross-post: On the Danger of Software Magicians

I wrote a language-agnostic article and posted it on Medium. Cross posting here for anyone following my Perl posts as well. I hope you enjoy it.

Amusewiki 2.0

Happy winter solstice, Perl community!

After almost 3 years of development and more than 2 years in production, 2 talks at YAPC::EU (Granada and Cluj) and one talk at the Dancer conference last year in Vienna, I think it's time to announce Amusewiki on blogs. as well, as I consider it more or less feature complete and robust enough for a larger audience.

Amusewiki is basically a CMS, but it's not "yet another one". Its main feature is that it creates for each published text various PDF (via LaTeX) and EPUB (for e-readers and mobile devices) files, along with an HTML version. It's also able to produce slides. Also the bookbuilder provides a way to extract, merge and customize the texts stored in the archive. You may want to give amusewiki a try if you're interested in publishing and distributing texts. If you just need a wiki or a blog for posting code snippets and lolcats, you probably want to look elsewhere. Amusewiki is suitable for publishing whole books as well.
