iCPAN is the CPAN on your iPhone/iPod/iPad. For a full description of what iCPAN is, please see the iCPAN app store page:

To edit the code and/or deploy to your iDevice, you'll first need to install the iPhone SDK:

You can either clone the main repository:

    git clone

Or, you can fork this on GitHub and then clone your own fork of the repo. This would be the recommended way of doing things:

    git clone

You'll also need to get the submodules:

    cd iCPAN
    git submodule init
    git submodule update

You can find the database snapshots at: The folders are organized by version number. Download the file in the appropriate folder, unzip it and copy it into your top iCPAN folder. For example, to download the code for the very latest version of the code:

    cd iCPAN
    curl -C - -O

To work with a tagged release, like version 1.0.0:

    cd iCPAN
    git checkout -b v1.0.0 v1.0.0
    curl -C - -O

At this point, you can click the Xcode "Build and Run" button to deploy the app to your iPhone simulator.

If you run into problems deploying to the simulator after altering the database, try resetting it and then building again. "iPhone Simulator" -> "Reset Content and Settings"

If GRMustache throws an "unrecognized selector" error, check the "Other Linker Flags" in your "Build Settings". Select "Any iOS" when deploying to hardware. Select "Any iOS Simulator" when deploying to the simulator.
