use.perl.org was a Perl-specific blogging website created by Chris Nandor and hosted at Geeknet. It was up from early 2001 until late 2010. A little over a month ago I started a project along the lines of Archive Team to save historical Perl websites and keep the content going.

I've just released WWW::UsePerl::Server to the CPAN. Using this module you can host your own use.perl.org mirror:


It comes with a MySQL database dump containing all the stories, journals and comments on use.perl.org. That way you can gain control of your content and import old journal entries into your current blog.

The useperl repository is up on GitHub.

Enjoy! Leon.


Sounds good! I'll check it out.

About acme

user-pic Léon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.
