I recently attended Miniconf in New York at which I decided to host a hackathon for my current hobby project, Mojo::Snoo - a Mojo wrapper for the reddit API.
Some hackathon attendees were nice enough to contribute code and give me some great ideas for future development. So, I’d like to briefly mention some changes introduced in the v0.10 release.
Firstly, let’s get one thing out of the way:
What the #$%! is Snoo?
Snoo is the name of r…
Long time no blog. I posted on reddit about my new module, Mojo::Snoo. I'm shooting for a funky Perl wrapper around the reddit API. Right now, I'm the only one using it (I think), but would like that to change.
So...feedback welcome! Install, break, complain, etc.
Oh, and I will be hosting a hackathon at Miniconf this weekend in NYC. So, feel free to say hi and help me with some development.
First off, I'd like to compliment Yuji Shimada on his fantastic module WWW::YouTube::Download. I'm sure the module requires a lot of maintenance (as sites like YouTube can change their design quite a bit) and for that I'm grateful.
Now, the module worked perfectly for my downloading needs …
I have uploaded the first version of WWW::KrispyKreme::Hotlight. This is basically a Perl wrapper that interfaces with Krispy Kreme's location search page
Creating a new object like this:
# only supports geo right now
my $donuts =
WWW::KrispyKreme::Hotlight->new(where => [34.170833,-118.25]);
and calling the locations method like this:
my $locations = $donuts->locations;
Yesterday I released another IRC plugin for POE::Component::IRC: POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::WWW::Reddit::TIL
The plugin simply fetches a random title and link from the front page of Reddit's TodayILearned subreddit.
I used WWW::Shorten::Simple to return bitly links, and Mojo::JSON to decode reddit's API.
