Most Wanted Modules

These are the most-wanted pure Raku modules (as opposed to native library bindings). These may be direct ports of Perl libraries, but that is not necessarily the case.

WIP Tags

If you start implementing a module, but it's not ready for the release to the public yet, please mark it in the list as WIP (Work In Progress) with a link to the repository, so other potential authors do not assume no one is working on this problem.

Once your work is added to the ecosystem, please remove it from the Most Wanted list, even if you're still fleshing out the module.

Please also add an issue with some explanation of why you think that's needed in the ecosystem.
