About CPAN Explorer

CPAN Explorer is a visualization project aiming at analyzing the relationships between the developers and the packages of the Perl language, known to be organized as the CPAN community.

We mostly used nicely formated data available from the CPAN Testing Service, but also raw data crawled from the web.

This project was initially discussed in a talk at the FPW’09. See the slides (in french). The idea come from an early experiment done here (also in french).
