How do I share JavaScript?

[ #36795 ]

I will be presenting about A/B testing at OSCON. Since I'm presenting in the web track, I can't assume that people have Perl. Besides I've strongly recommended that people create a significance calculator as a web page, so I wanted to demonstrate what that looks like. So I decided to kill two birds with one stone and write that in JavaScript.

For this purpose I've ported Statistics::Distributions from Perl to JavaScript. Which is fine and dandy for my purposes, but now I'm wondering whether I can contribute this code to some project somewhere. With Perl it is easy - everyone knows that CPAN is the place to do things like that. With JavaScript, what are my options?

    • The last news update there was Jan 14, 2007. The last upload listed on the side panel was Sep 28, 2007. When I click on Contribute I'm taken to [], which my browser can't find.

      When I look in Google for it I find that Ingy has something called Jemplate there which has a file dated Nov 2, 2007. Maybe there is something more recent that hasn't updated.

      But all in all this looks like a dead project to me.

      • Not only is it dead, it is dead enough that it has almost completed the cycle – there has been talk about a revival recently.

        • In fact, there's been CODING on the revival recently.

          Give it a little while, and everything should be running again.

        • We had a bit of a system loss a while ago, and it's been stalled while people wait on me to get things going again.

          Alias and I got some ducks in a row last week and have a clear plan going forward.

          Once I complete a few more small steps towards getting things working, I will make a formal announcement.
