A simple way to specify dependencies
Question: What is the simplest and quickest way for a developer to specify a list of dependent CPAN modules so that other developers can easily install them ?
My answer: add a
cpanfile in your app directory with content like this:
# cpanm < cpanfile Plack Web::Hippie Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxy
And the installation is just as simple as
cpanm < cpanfile. This is very easy. If the app itself does not have to be installed, which is often true, this is a very quick and simple solution.
The idea is from Bundler, which is a great
local::lib-like tool for Ruby developing, but it does a lot more.
