Not long time ago I asked a community about possible service to run integration tests for existed cpan modules , not having too much feedback I decided to run such a service to make my suggestion visible and available to try for other users.
So, meet CPANParty - an alternative integration tests for cpan modules. Right now service is hosted on swatpm site, but in the future I will probably move it to dedicated domain.
Only a few randomly chosen cpan modules was picked up and tested. Eventually I will add more.
So, questions, ideas, issues?
Please comment here or to https://github.com/melezhik/cpanparty
Thanks in advance
PS CPANParty reports page below
What happens when you add a module to cpanparty (great name btw)- do you write integration tests? Or is the idea to "crowd-source" perl people to write tests for modules?
First of all, thanks for question, Yary!

Thanks! ... yeah, I like it to! ;)
> do you write integration tests? Or is the idea to "crowd-source" perl people to write tests for modules?
For the time being all the tests are written by me, but of course I would like other people will join the party ;) Already added test suites could be good start point ( as examples ) for cpanparty beginners, as writing tests implies using dedicated frameworks (swat or outthentic)
Another idea behind cpanparty tests are kind of specifications by examples for the cpan modules they written for, most of test reports are quite simple and illustrative, but still gives an essential information about tested module public API. We could look at this like at cucumber for perl, well in some sense ...
