Faster, hairy yak, shave, SHAVE!

As previously reported, last week-end’s activities could be summarized as me going to town on a yak herd with a lawnmower. And although the rest of Saturday and this morning haven’t been as fast and furious as Saturday morning, there’s a few more things to report:

Introducing Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CoalescePod

I’ve revived Perl::Achievements. I thought that would keep the wolves at bay, but noooo… Not a hour after the announcement was sent, I got a new feature request. I really should not but… okay, I wanted to do it anyway and if somebody is actually asking for it, why the heck not? Plus, it’ll give me the opportunity to see if my Template::Caribou is up to snuff. A few hours later, I have a bug report for MooseX::App::Cmd and (after some touch-ups) released the first version of Template::Caribou on CPAN.

perl-achievements, the return

Perl::Achievements is now on CPAN. The goal of the app is the same as presented in the original blog entry. I’ve, however, fleshed out a little bit more the documentation, tidied up the code a wee bit (well, it’s still a mess, but it’s using a lot of cool stuff, so it’s a shiny mess), and changed the innards just a tad. Wanna use it?

Each database user (principal) can be retrieved from sys.database_principals and the associated database roles can be retrieved from sys.database_role_members The following code runs against ALL the databases using SP_MSForeachdb and all roles for one principal is concatenated in one row

A Web Log Analyzer Called DuckFeet

DuckFeet’s guts are SQLicious, and built as DBIx::Class classes, sprinkled with wonderfully tooth-decaying DBIx::Class::Candy on top. In the repo, it’s all under the DuckFeet::Schema namespace. For the time being, there is only a handful of tables (hits, uris, referers, agents and hosts), but it should be easily extendable to add any type of information we might desire to throw in, but it should be easily extendable to add any type of information we might desire to throw in.

Cross-breeding Template::Declare with Moose

Say hello to Template::Caribou. The goal of that new template system? Steal or be inspired by a maximal amount of Template::Declare features, while using Moose as the core engine. For the rest of this blog entry, I’ll take you on a tour of that basic sample use, peeling the system from the outside in, hoping that the glitter of the outer layers will soften the shocks of the abominations of the inner mechanisms.
