in reply to how did this module get into CPAN ?!

I recently read Newest Nodes and saw there was a post apparently concerning the shortcomings of a specific CPAN module. Since I use CPAN extensively and do not have the time to accurately vet all the modules on there myself, I clicked on the post to see what it was about.

What I found took was a BIG surprise,IT WAS A COMPLETE AND UTTER PILE OF SELFIMPORTANT CRAP!

I mean, theauthor seems to have a habit of spouting off a bit, but this was even worse than usual!

Arguments summary:

  • Factual incorrectness
  • Completely unnecessary
  • Didn't even take the time to properly formulate his arguments (expository introduction is longer than list of arguments)

  • Possibly contains "hidden" agenda, not properly documented

And all that we could have done without !


All dogma is stupid.

[choroba]: Anyone using anything to validate json contents of a REST service?
[moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
[moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
[choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
[moritz]: like JSON::Schema
[Corion]: ambrus++ # more bugs than lines
[Corion]: That's like "works on my machine" ;-)
[choroba]: I mean, I'd like to say "this path should run this sub, but first it should check the user is authenticated, has the following permissions, and the contents is valid against a given schema
[ambrus]: no, that means I haven't even tried to run it, might not even parse
[ambrus]: so it doesn't work on my machine
