Putting CPAN modules on github

[ #38053 ]

I saw in Ovid's post about App::Prove::History that he's hosting it on Github.

I've recently started mirroring my git repositories to Github as well. It has some nice eye candy and tracking tools.

One thing that made it easy to migrate was brian d foy's github-creator package, which is a command-line tool to create a new repository on Github. You just run it from a distribution directory and it figures out a name and so on.

It's not a module (yet), so installing with CPAN requires an explicit distribution name:

cpan> install BDFOY/github_creator-0.13.tar.gz

If you're thinking of putting your CPAN modules on github, definitely try it out.

  • Pretty nifty little tool.

    Incidentally, I saw in the doc that it doesn't support Build.PL yet, so I cloned it from Github and hacked the support in. Me 3 Github for that kind of stuff. :-)
