Using Plack to "Like" a Module on Facebook

We've made a couple of fun changes to cpan-mangler. First off, you can now "like" modules on Facebook:

Now, up and downvoting of modules would be a lot more useful, but this can be fun (and confusing for your friends):

Secondly, Lee Aylward added support for HTML::Highlighter:

Thirdly, we've added a tweaked version of Jesse Thompson's CPAN Dependents Greasemonkey script.

If you've already got cpan-mangler installed, a "git pull" should get you going (you'll likely need to install some additional modules). If you haven't, you can clone the repo and get yourself started in just a couple of minutes. Have fun with it!

Very cool, some of this stuff should probably be built in to the core cpan search stuff, but its great to see those features added in this creative way.

Good for Perl advocacy as well!

Thanks!

Would love it if somebody eventually put up this hacked-cpan-interface up on the WWW so we can all use it without needing to host our own =)
