  • I would like to add few more packages to this list, these are some of the newer package that seem attractive

    4. KiokuDB
    5. Reaction

    They are most likely not in popular use, but they are the most blogged about

    • but they are the most blogged about

      Yet I'm not familiar with either, and I'm too lazy to look up what it's all about...

      Can you introduce these packages shortly, and most of all, tell us why we should care?

      • KiokuDB is a Moose based object database supporting multiple backend (filesystem, BerkeleyDB, DBI, etc...). You can read more about it here [].

        Reaction is a framework on top of Catalyst and Moose. It aims at making components more reusable. An introduction can be found here [] and here [].

        Both of them are examples of next-generation Perl projects.

        • Those two look like they rely on stuff we mention in the first 3.

          Reaction will be a lot closer to working now that WWW::Mechanize is now working. There isn't any obvious other bugs that I can see at first look, but I'm installing it to make sure.

          As for KiokuDB, I'll have to check that one once we get DB_File working.

          The new Strawberry Perl for Windows has been released! Check for it.
