in reply to Goodbye search.cpan.org

Can something please be done to just stop this nonsense?

As an active developer I use search.cpan.org every working day!

My browser history shows an average of 20 visits per day in the past month.

It's a PERFECT website. The form and function are impeccable. It must remain!


Not only should we save it but really search.cpan.org or something exactly like it belongs in the Perl core so we could simply do things like:

pydoc -g
http://localhost:7464/

gem server
http://localhost:8808/

php -S localhost:8080
http://localhost:8080/

Like search.cpan.org for local modules:

perldoc -port:8888
http://localhost:8888/

      what's wrong with metacpan.org?

      Minor quibble: on /recent, (which is the most-used page for me) the line height is too large, so that less entries fit on a page (than is the case on the old website). I do see the advantages of metacpan.org but less lines on a page is still something that is a bit annoying. Perhaps it can be fixed.

      "So, what's wrong with metacpan.org?"

      (speaking for myself) It's not that I hate metacpan; it's that I don't like it.

      It's not that I like search.cpan; it's that I love it.

      Qualification of the above;
      I find metacpan too messy, and busy for my needs, and likes -- it get's in my way, and workflow.

      search.cpan OTOH has exactly what I need, and only what I need.

      That pretty much covers it, for me. :-)

    "It must remain!"

    This seems unlikely.

    "Not only should we save it but really search.cpan.org or something exactly like it belongs in the Perl core so we could simply do things like:"

    What are you doing to save search.cpan? Have you submitted a patch for the functionality you desire?

    Update: fixed typo.
