PerlMonksFlairApp - : Share flair badges from


This project is a simple tribute to . It generates a badge according to the 30 fancy titles you get when you are a user on that site.


My username is gideondsouza, as of today I happen to be a Pilgrim, Level 8. Here is my flair:

Here is the site live :

Once you install this module, all you need to do is :

    $ perl /path/to/module/bin/ --port=1234
    $ #now you have the site running at localhost:1234

Open your browser and try http://localhost:1234/your_perlmonks_username.jpg and you should see an appropriate flair badge. This is an example of running on the Dancer standalone server. You could of course run it on a number of other servers including Apache and what not.

I used the nifty Dancer web framework, do checkout Dancer2 for an even niftier web framework. On the site live I use Varnish to cache images and Starman as my server. The front end is bootstrap if you still haven't seen the site :) The whole thing runs on a CentOS box.
