CPANTS on the web

[ #20758 ]
Using Maypole I created a web front-end to the CPANTS database generated by Thomas Klausner

It is currently located at CPANTS on the web. Expect it to be slow to the level of being totally useless.

The source code of the back-end is now available.

  • The tables are displayed oddly in Firefox 0.9.3 and Camino 0.8.1 for OS X. Here's a screenshot from Firefox []. iCab 2.9.8 displays it better with the search box on top.
  • Nice. And it's not that slow (currently)

    However, I can't get it to do what I want it to do. I can get it to list my distributions (fine, but I know this), and tell me my average kwalitee (good). Now tell me something I don't know - specifically please list my distributions in a table with their quality metrics. But it won't. Or I'm missing how to persuaded it to do that. Can it do this?

    • AFAIK Gabor basically took the cpants.db sqlite file and dumped it into a very basic Maypole setup. So I guess complex joins are not possible using the web interface right now.

      But you can get this information from the db directly:

      select kwalitee.* from kwalitee,cpan where cpan.dist=kwalitee.dist and cpan.cpanid='NWCLARK';
