search.cpan.org clone based on MetaCPAN API This is an attempt to recreate the look-and-feel of http://search.cpan.org/ using the MetaCPAN API as a back-end. https://github.com/CPAN-API/cpan-api/ For objectives, plans, and a description of what the site, and the code behind it should look like see http://perlmaven.com/search-cpan-org For a live version of this application visit http://sco.perlmaven.com/ Development environment: ------------------------ * Install the prerequisites via Makefile.PL * Run bin/fetch.pl to fetch some meta-meta-data from MetaCPAN::API * Run plackup -r * Borwse to http://localhost:5000/ Enhancements ============= Various places where the clone differs from the real sco that can be considered enhancements. The permalink in the top-right corner of -------------- http://sco.perlmaven.com/~szabgab/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Special-0.04/lib/CPAN/Test/Dummy/SCO/Special.pm links directly to the permanent url and not to /perldoc? https://github.com/szabgab/MetaCPAN-SCO/issues/18 Canonical URLs --------------- All the version-specific files set the non-version specific file as the canonical URL. For example http://search.cpan.org/~szabgab/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Special-0.04/lib/CPAN/Test/Dummy/SCO/Separate.pod sets http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Special/lib/CPAN/Test/Dummy/SCO/Separate.pod http://search.cpan.org/~szabgab/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Special-0.04/ sets http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Special/ See https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/139066?hl=en https://github.com/szabgab/MetaCPAN-SCO/issues/17 Redirect URLs -------------- Historically many people have been linking to version specific files on search.cpan.org. When that version of the module is removed from CPAN, these links become broken. Instead of showing a 'Not found' error sco. could redirect those URLs to the stable URL. For example http://saerch.cpan.org/~szabgab/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Pirated-1.02/lib/CPAN/Test/Dummy/SCO/Pirated.pm to http://sco.perlmaven.com/dist/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Pirated/lib/CPAN/Test/Dummy/SCO/Pirated.pm and http://saerch.cpan.org/~szabgab/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Pirated-1.02/ to http://sco.perlmaven.com/dist/CPAN-Test-Dummy-SCO-Pirated/ See https://github.com/szabgab/MetaCPAN-SCO/issues/19 Author lists ------------- All these pages used to server the same content: http://search.cpan.org/author/?a http://search.cpan.org/author/?A http://search.cpan.org/author/?Abc And then pages with different query_string had different content. Instead of that now all of them redirect to http://search.cpan.org/author/A
