in thread Automated build and deployment.

Actualy I allready put Krang in the download list :D I heard they are shiping all required modules with it - so figured that it might be worth of checking out.

Are there any other applications that follow the same/similar path?

It's a bit limiting because you can only ship pure Perl modules that way - or hope that you have a nice server admin who is willing to do it for you.


Have you tried freelancing? Check out Scriptlance - I work there. For more info about Scriptlance and freelancing in general check out my home node.

    It's actually not that hard to install compiled modules with only Web access; have an installer script, run from a Web browser, that runs the compiler and installs the modules in the user's home directory. See Re: Re: Alternatives to User::Agent? for an example; obviously you'd have to adapt this for your purposes. I've found that this works for most Web hosting companies I've used, and I do it frequently.
        Wow, that's great! I've been looking for something like that for years. I'll have to play with it this weekend.

    Krang includes XS modules that need to be compiled. It does make certain assumptions about the target though, e.g. that it is a unixy system with a compiler available.
      Yes that is a bit of problem I guess.

      Eitherway I'm using just Perl modules, or those widely available (such as TemplateToolkit). And while I use Windows - most of apps (~ 99%) are deployed to Linux or FreeBSD servers.

      I was also thinking to provide binary distros - where XS modules would be allready compiled.

        Krang does support binary distros. You can compile it on a platform and then make a binary distribution from your compiled code.
