I haven't written about our last releases because I was a bit stressed for time. Allow me to apologize for that.
We have just released a new version of Dancer2 and I think it's time to share the work we've done recently and where we're going with the next releases.
We started a kickstarter to write and print a Dancer book. We have less than 10 days to sponsor it and we need your help!
We want to thank Evozon, Booking.com, and Weborama who have provided a generous donation to make this happen.
If you would like to see this book published you can help fund it. And if you work for a company that uses Perl and could use a few copies of the book, please consider suggesting they help sponsor the book as well.
What will you get? You will get an official Dancer book written by the core team. You will get the latest features covered - Dancer2! You will get examples that cover practical usage - websites and web APIs. You will get our appreciation and thanks. And above all, you will get to know you helped sponsor a new Modern Perl book, by people who write modern software out of community interest and wrote the book for the benefit of the community and the language.
(You might also get a drink from one of us at a conference!)
Alexis Sukrieh (creator of Dancer) will also be one of the author (oh yes, he's back!). You can read his post on the kickstarter here. A new core team developer, Jason Crome, also wrote of the book here.
What is there to wait for? Go on, spread the word! Help us make it happen! Here is the Kickstarter link again, just for you. :)
Yet another Dancer2 release hitting CPAN as we speak, all the way from Granada, Spain, courtesy of YAPC::EU 2015.
We've made a few interesting changes, highlights of which I would like to share with you.
I am proud to announce another release of Dancer2, carrying many changes and improvements, with 9 contributors and 21 tickets closed.
This release carries the following major changes:
* Workaround for multiple plugins with hooks.
* "send_file" is asynchronous by default. Fallback to synchronous.
* "prefix" now supports the entire route path spec ("/:var" now works in prefix).
* Clear up prefix inconsistencies ("/var" vs. "/var/").
* Proper package reported in logging.
If you're interested in web development and/or the Dancer web framework, we're running a very special Dancer Master Class at this year's YAPC::NA.
It's been a little while since we had a release. We took longer this time because this release provides a few major improvements we wanted to mature.
With 13 contributors and 23 tickets closed, I'd like to present Dancer2 0.159000.
A new version of Dancer2 has been shipped yesterday and is already waiting for you at a mirror nearby!
It has come to our attention that some people don’t follow public announcements made on mailing lists so I will also be releasing a public announcement on this blog when I release a new Dancer2 version (except patch versions).
I'm pleased and excited to announce that Yanick Champoux has joined the Dancer core team.
Naveed Massjouni has recently released a new version of his Dancer::Plugin::Email. If you're using Dancer and emails, you probably found this plugin very useful.
Guess what? It's now even more useful!
Naveed has rewritten a major part of it in order to use Email::Sender instead of Email::Stuff (which uses the dep…
So you're sitting at home, preparing for a karaoke night, waiting for your friend to arrive. She comes in, rings the doorbell and you're thinking "fuck! I'm upstairs, and she's downstairs and I have to open the door for her (because it's locked) but I'm busy changing my clothes." What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?
What if you could let her in using you phone while you're still upstairs getting yourself ready? Arduino could be used for that. And the following is a theoretical (and slightly bit practical) explanation on how you could use Arduino and Dancer to accomplish this.
