Module::CPANTS::ProcessCPAN - Generate Kwalitee ratings for the whole CPAN
Run CPANTS on the whole of CPAN. Includes a DBIx::Class based DB abstraction layer. More docs soon...
How to set up a local CPANTS processor

A local CPAN mirror (eg one mirrored with CPAN::Mini)
All the prereqs of Module::CPANTS::Analyse & Module::CPANTS::ProcessCPAN
Set up the DB
You can find the current schema of the CPANTS DB in sql/cpants.schema. Use this schema to set up a Postgres DB:
psql cpants < sql/cpants.schema
You will also need to set up an account in the DB. If you don't know how to do that, read the postgres docs...
When you install Module::CPANTS::ProcessCPAN the Build script will ask you some questions where to install the app to:
Please specify the CPANTS home directory: [/home/domm/cpants ] Postgres DB user: [cpants ] Postgres DB password: [cpants ]
After installing the code with
sudo ./Build install you have to install the app into the CPANTS home directory you specified earlier:
This will set up the needed directories and scripts. Please note that if you install Module::CPANTS::Site (the Catalyst-based web frontend), it will re-use the CPANTS home dir and install the cat app into the same location.
Change into the CPANTS home dir. There you will find a dir
bin containing various scripts. You can either call each script on it's own (usefull if your working on one step of the process), or call the wrapper script
run.pl calls all scripts in the correct order and with the needed parameters.
run.pl itself takes theses parameters:
This is the path to the root of the local cpan mirror
The path to the
cpants_lint.plscript that's comming with Module::CPANTS::Analyse. If you're in the middle of developing new features (or more likely fixing bugs...) you can point this to the dev version in your Module::CPANTS::Analyse repo (
Test all dists, not only those that have been uploaded since the last run. Please note that this usually takes aprox an hour...
Testing only a subset of CPAN
During development of new features it's very annoying to wait for an hour until you uncover the next bug. Therefore it pays off to set up a slim local CPAN mirror. I wrote CPAN::Mini::FromList to set up such a mirror.
Please report any bugs or feature requests, or send any patches, to bug-module-cpants-analyse at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Module-CPANTS-ProcessCPAN. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
