The future of HTML::Lint

[ #17558 ]
I'm done maintaining HTML::Lint. I'm switching to my new HTML::Tidy, which is workable but not very well documented at this point. It's just a wrapper around tidylib, but a configurable one. It's aimed at automated testing.

So does anyone want to pick up HTML::Lint and run with it, carrying on a pure Perl solution to HTML validation?

  • Andy,

    I Can take this. I'd appreciate if you can take a little time and let me know what's involved in the maintenance of a CPAN module, as this would be my first module.


    • First, make sure that you're actually serving a need. Do you really need the functionality of HTML::Lint that HTML::Tidy doesn't serve?


      • Good question. I looked at HTML::Tidy and it appears that it depends on libtidy. I am currently using HTML::Lint on my development system and a couple of others as well. Since it is pure-perl there was no need to install the library. But since they are all development boxes, it should be no problem installing HTML::Tidy (and libtidy) on them. So, on that respect, I can't say that I am serving a real or critical need.

        Honestly speaking, I thought it would be a learning experience for me and this was at leas
