New Module Google::OAuthby tqisjim (Beadle)
|on Apr 23, 2013 at 19:35 UTC||Need Help??|
tqisjim has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I just released a new module, Google::OAuth. I've been pretty prolific publishing modules in the last few months. And I understand that CPAN tests each distro on a wide variety of platforms. But is there any other way for a publisher to get feedback?
Specifically, I'd be interested in the following:
I haven't ranted about PHP for a while. I still suffer from a perception that PHP progammers are essentially script kiddies, and shared PHP code is delivered in shrink-wrap (metaphorically speaking) with inaccessible internals. It follows, then, that perl is more appropriate for professionals. Most of my modules incorporate this philosophy. But no idea whether this is the same world the rest of you see.
Google's developer site makes no mention of perl. On the basis of the listed API's, developers might assume perl is incompatible with Google integration. It's not likely that my distro is going to have as much influence as all that. But I really hope it will sail as far as possible on its own merit.
Thanks for any shared thoughts and feedback.
