Improving the CPAN experience (a GSoC summer tale)

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 services
  • Unified (REST) API
  • Back-end for Android/iPhone apps, command line tools etc.
  • MetaCPAN.local for companies
  • Includes BackPAN as well
  • Open-source and free

Now what?
