Task::Kensho is a project from the EPO, which lists some Perl modules recommended for modern Perl development.
CPANDB is a project from Adam Kennedy, and it’s an unified database for the CPAN index.
- Node count: 840
- Edge count: 2248
The authors from this map are the one extracted from the new distributions map. There is a lot of informations on this map, so I will explain how to read it.
- The size of a node represents the number of modules an author has released on the CPAN
- An edge is created when an author uses a module from another author
- The size of the label represents the number of inbound links. The more uses of this author’s modules by other authors, the bigger the label
- The color represent the average kwalitee of an author
- The thickness of an edge depends on the number of modules by an author used by another author
So if we look at the map, we can see that:
- Adam Kennedy releases a lot of modules on the CPAN, but few of them are used by other CPAN developpers on the CPAN, so he gets a big green node, with a small label
- Giles Aas has few modules released on the CPAN, but they are extremely used (like
URI), so the size of the node is small, but the label is much bigger
- The size of the edge between Rocco Caputo and Chris Williams is important, because Rocco releases the
POEdistribution, and Chris Williams releases a lot of
As for the previous maps, Gephi was used to do the spatialization.
