Module Build System

[ #36763 ]
What are recommendations the tools that you use to build, test, automate change logs, and release your CPAN modules? About 2 years ago I used Module::Release, but at this point I'm looking to re-evaluate my options.

  • Module::Install works for all of my distributions, and a combination of svk, ShipIt, Module::Changes and Dist::Joseki makes releasing all painless.

    It's a bit involved though; I'd like to write about my toolchain if and when I get the time...

  • What don't you like, or what is missing, from Module::Release that would make it work for you? Maybe I can fix that. :)

    • I remember that after version 1.12 (the patch you got from Ken Williams) the module stopped working for me. I had to backport to an old version to get things going again. I should have dug a bit and let you know what broke, but I was too lazy at the time. (My own fault) Looking now, it seems there are hooks for svn and git so it looks like I'll give it another go. -Jeff


      • It's been a long time since I've posted anything to and I'm wondering if I'm missing the link to edit the contents of my previous comment.


      • Let me know if there is anything else you need in Module::Release.

        The trick, however, is not to rely on what Module::Release does, but how it does it so you can extend it on your own. I never really meant it to be used out of the box. Customize the release script to do whatever you need it to do. :)

        (and no, you don't get to edit previous replies, just the top-level posts). :)
