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


Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.


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


Run a proper command ("make manifest" or "./Build manifest", maybe with a force option), or use a distribution builder to generate the MANIFEST. Or update MANIFEST manually.

Error: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.


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

Error: WebService/GoogleHack/GoogleHack.pm -- Around line 813: Expected '=item *'


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • HTML::LinkExtor
  • LWP::Simple
  • LWP::UserAgent
  • SOAP::Lite
  • Set::Scalar
  • Text::English
  • URI::URL


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: GoogleHack::GoogleHack, WebService::GoogleHack::Search, WebService::GoogleHack::Spelling, WebService::GoogleHack::Text


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


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/Module.pm' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

Error: GoogleHack/GoogleHack.pm, GoogleHack/Rate/Rate.pm, GoogleHack/Search/Search.pm, GoogleHack/Spelling/Spelling.pm, GoogleHack/Text/Text.pm


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: GoogleHack::GoogleHack, WebService::GoogleHack::Rate, WebService::GoogleHack::Search, WebService::GoogleHack::Spelling, WebService::GoogleHack::Text


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