Spreadsheet::ParseExcel on github

[ #39545 ]

I've moved Spreadsheet::ParseExcel to github:

It had previously been on Google Code but I didn't find it conducive to collaboration. Hopefully github will be better. I already like the clean look and feel.

One of the default options on github is to have a wiki page which I thought would be useful for the Pod documentation if it were converted to the Textile format. Then I thought "I have a module for that", Pod::Simple::Wiki.

So I imported Pod::Simple::Wiki to github, cloned it, followed my own instructions, and within a hour I had a pod2wiki Textile converter (with tests).

Here are example pages for Spreadsheet::ParseExcel and Pod::Simple::Wiki itself. I'll upload it to CPAN once I make a few more changes to the docs and to link handling.

  • At work we use Trac for our projects and at some point this week I decided that it would be nice to be able to write Trac pages using POD instead of the Trac Wiki markup (mostly MoinMoin).

    It took me some time to get familiar with Trac internals and relearning how to do the most simple things in Python (as I have not used that language for a very long time), but in the end I was able to write a plugin to support POD.

    Behind the scenes, it just fed the POD text to pod2wiki and retrofitted the output into t

    • If you'd like I can have a look at creating a pod2trac filter based on Pod::Simple::Wiki.
