Under maintenance.

Most probably CPANTS databases are being regenerated from scratch due to major changes in Kwalitee metrics or updates of relevant modules/perl. Usually this maintenance takes about a day or two, and some of the information may be old or missing tentatively. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kwalitee Issues


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Error: CIPP-3.0.8/lib/CIPP/Manual.pm -- Around line 2105: You can't have =items (as at line 2111) unless the first thing after the =over is an =itemAround line 2323: You can't have =items (as at line 2329) unless the first thing after the =over is an =itemAround line 3174: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'Around line 3178: =back without =overAround line 3655: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'Jörn'.

List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • IO::String


Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: CIPP, CIPP::Compile::Message, CIPP::Manual


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 0.01,0.42,1.000002,1.000005,3.000008


Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!


If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.


Define the license if you are using in Build.PL. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade to ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.31.


Add 'use warnings' (or its equivalents) to all modules (this will require perl > 5.6), or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.

Error: CIPP, CIPP::Compile::Apache, CIPP::Compile::Cache, CIPP::Compile::Generator, CIPP::Compile::Message, CIPP::Compile::NewSpirit, CIPP::Compile::Parser, CIPP::Compile::PerlCheck, CIPP::Debug, CIPP::Manual, CIPP::Runtime, CIPP::Runtime::NewSpirit, CIPP::Runtime::Request


This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.


Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
