Some cute Perl amigurumis

Disclaimer: this looks like an advertisement, but it's not. I just want to spread the word about really cute Perl goodies. I won't get any money from that.

Do you know amigurumi? It's stuffed crocheted creatures.

A few weeks ago, a free software enthousiast, DoomyFlo asked on Mastodon what kind of FLOSS-related stuff she could crochet. I suggested the Perl onion and the camel and the result is awesome!

Here's the onion: amigurumi Perl onion

Here's the camel: amigurumi Perl camel

The amigurumis are hand-made and 100% cute 🙂

You can order those amigurumi on (here's direct links to the onion and the camel).

Perl and Etherpad

Etherpad is a really great collaborative editor. Written in Javascript for NodeJS, it offers a HTTP API which allows to do a lot of things.

Despite a lot of other languages API libraries, Perl had no API module for a long time.

This is not an issue anymore since I wrote the Etherpad::API. Now we can use the etherpad…
