Perl::Critic Has New Home And New Look

Perl::Critic has been improving code and irritating developers for almost 10 years! To celebrate, has been moved to new hardware and completely rewritten.

The back end is now written in Modern Perl™ using Mojolicious. And the front end uses Bootstrap and jQuery to create a productive and fun user experience.

The source code is on GitHub as Perl-Critic/Perl-Critic-Jed and I welcome pull requests. If you're looking for an opportunity to contribute to a public site, this is a great place to start.

Check it out now:


I wish I could integrate Perl::Critic with something like Sonar Qube as it provide history of how quality is improving or not as well as monitoring of test coverage.

The new interface lost the very useful option of submitting code or code fragment by pasting it in the textarea, instead of uploading a file.
