This is the source code for https://perl6.org.
Here are some guidelines that you should respect when changing this site:
Only link to up-to-date information. Feel free to delete outdated information — it is often more confusing than helpful.
Don't hesitate to link to pages you wrote yourself, if they are helpful to a broader Perl 6 audience.
If you have a Perl 6 blog, get it included in the planetsix.perl.org feed instead. Talk to [Coke] on #perl6.
If you intend to change the layout, consider what happens when:
- user's viewport is small (e.g. 800x600)
- user resizes window
We use SASS in
style.css. You can do that by running
sass style.scss:style.cssinside the
--watchflag to make it watch for changes and re-generate the CSS file). CSS is still valid SASS; if you don't know SASS, just write plain CSS. If you cannot run
sass, please add your changes to
style.cssand ping @zoffixznet to add your styles to
We support the current and previous major releases of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (Edge), and Safari. Please test layout changes. Lacking actual browsers to test in, you can use browsershots.org or browserstack.com.
We spell "Perl 6" consistently with a non-breaking space. If you don't already have one, go get an editor with decent Unicode support.
Speaking of which, all pages are served as UTF-8.
If you create a new page, please link to the URL without the ".html" extension.
To run this site locally:
Install the following modules:
cpanm App::Mowyw Text::VimColor Plack
Run the following commands to populate the
./onlinefolder and launch a local web server for testing:
Open http://localhost:5000/index.html in your browser
Tip: if you remove
mowyw generation will run a
lot faster. Useful for checking frequently-made changes.
