  • When looking at making a .deb, considering working with the debian-perl group (http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/) as we have a group of people who can upload it to the debian repository and try to keep it up-to-date as you release new versions.

    • I probably will eventually, but wanted to "have a go" for myself first. A friend from Gloucestershire LUG gave a presentation about creating .deb's and uploading them to LaunchPad, and thought this might be a good experiment to see how that works :)

  • Sounds interesting. I'll create RPMs for Centos and Fedora and stick them in my RPM repository [mag-sol.com].

    • Thanks :) I'll sort out a link to those too for the website once it's ready ;)

      • Ok, the Fedora 10 [mag-sol.com] and Centos 5 [mag-sol.com] RPMs are available (along with a few dependencies that weren't in the standard repositories).

        The easiest method to get them is probably to add my repo definition files (for Fedora [mag-sol.com] and Centos [mag-sol.com]) to your yum configuration and then just run:

        yum install perl-App-Maisha

        • Great, thanks. I'll add this to the downloads page. Currently working on the website now :)

  • WWW::Facebook::API also supports the Facebook desktop api:

    http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Login_Desktop_App [facebook.com]

    http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/CLSCOTT/WWW-Facebook-API-0.4.14/examples/facebook -desktop-json [perl.org]

    I don't have any experience with the desktop apps but as the maintainer of WWW::Facebook::API I can help you out and roll any patches out quickly.

    • I did briefly look at WWW-Facebook-API, but it requires the API key. The problem is that Facebook, like other similar API developers, assume that only compiled languages would ever want to access them from user-space. If you want to use a language like Perl you have to hide behind your own server, so you can hide the API key :(

      Hence why I hope they eventually acknowledge a restricted User API that the user can have control over.
