NAME

CPANLists::Server - Application that runs on cpanlists.org

VERSION

This document describes version 0.02 of CPANLists::Server (from Perl distribution CPANLists-Server), released on 2014-05-17.

SYNOPSIS

You probably do not want to install this. This distribution contains the code to run on cpanlists.org.

For the client program, see App::cpanlists.

DESCRIPTION

Currently to use this module, you have to do two things. This is ugly and might change in the future.

  • Set database handle at startup

     $dbh = DBI->connect(...);
     CPANLists::Server::__dbh($dbh);
  • Set PSGI environment for each request

    Mainly so that __activity_log() can get REMOTE_ADDR etc from PSGI environment.

     CPANLists::Server::__env($env);
