Panda

Panda Panda is an implementation of a Perl 6 module manager specification.

Description

Panda is a module management solution for Perl 6.

Installation

To install Panda along with all its dependencies, simply run the script bootstrap.pl in the root of the panda git repo. You must have perl6 installed in order to run bootstrap.pl

git clone --recursive git://github.com/tadzik/panda.git

cd panda

perl6 bootstrap.pl

Since the bootstrap step currently runs tests with prove, you will need a recent TAP::Harness (3.x) for it to work properly.

If you are behind a proxy, you need to configure git and configure wget to use the proxy.

After a successful bootstrap, a message will show up saying what path should be added to PATH env variable in order to be able to run panda from the command line. For example:

==> Please make sure that /home/user/rakudo/install/share/perl6/site/bin is in your PATH

If you use bash, you can fulfill that requirement with the following:

echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/home/user/rakudo/install/share/perl6/site/bin' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

Running Tests

One way to run the test suite is with prove from TAP::Harness

prove -e perl6 -lrv t/
# or on windows: prove -e "perl6 -lrv" t/

You will need a recent TAP::Harness (3.x) to have a prove binary with an -e option.

Usage

Panda can be used like:

panda install Task::Star

(Task::Star is a handy bundle that installs all the modules shipped with the Rakudo Star Perl 6 distribution.)

Alternatively, you can install a package from the local disk by supplying its path:

panda install ./perl6-Acme-Meow
