Apps

  • App::CSE implements the Code Search Engine as an app
  • Run multiple apps in command with App::Munner
  • App::Table2YAML will convert tables to YAML
  • App::revealup is an awesome app that converts markdown documents into an HTTP served slideshow with revealup.js - check it out.
  • Perl’s compile-only mode doesn’t always load modules in the correct order or location. App::perlminlint aims to fix that (current version 0.1 needs a minor patch)
