Kwalitee Issues


Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.


Add a Makefile.PL (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker/Module::Install) or a Build.PL (for Module::Build and its friends), or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.


Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.


Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.


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


Add tests!


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.


  • MANIFEST (137) does not match dist (113):
  • Missing in Dist: bin, cgi-bin, client, cpan, etc, htdocs, htdocs/doc, htdocs/i, lib, lib/NewSpirit, lib/NewSpirit/CIPP, lib/NewSpirit/Object, lib/NewSpirit/SqlShell, license, perlmodules, tmpl, tools, usertmpl, usertools, var, var/projects, var/sessions, var/users
  • Duplicates in MANIFEST: license


Fix the version(s).


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • CIPP::Compile::NewSpirit
  • CIPP::Compile::PerlCheck
  • DBI
  • 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


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

Error: 0.00,0.01,0.02,0.04


Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.


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


Add tests or move to the t/ directory!


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/' 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: cpan/


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, NewSpirit, NewSpirit::CIPP::Base, NewSpirit::CIPP::CGI, NewSpirit::CIPP::Config, NewSpirit::CIPP::DB, NewSpirit::CIPP::HTML, NewSpirit::CIPP::Include, NewSpirit::CIPP::Module, NewSpirit::CIPP::PO, NewSpirit::CIPP::Prep, NewSpirit::CIPP::ProdReplace, NewSpirit::CIPP::SQL, NewSpirit::CIPP::TextDomain, NewSpirit::DataFile, NewSpirit::Depend, NewSpirit::Folder, NewSpirit::LKDB, NewSpirit::LKFile, NewSpirit::Lock, NewSpirit::Object, NewSpirit::Object::Blob, NewSpirit::Object::Generic, NewSpirit::Object::Image, NewSpirit::Object::Install, NewSpirit::Object::Record, NewSpirit::Object::Text, NewSpirit::Param1x, NewSpirit::Passwd, NewSpirit::PerlCheck, NewSpirit::Prefs, NewSpirit::Project, NewSpirit::Session, NewSpirit::SqlShell, NewSpirit::SqlShell::HTML, NewSpirit::SqlShell::Text, NewSpirit::Tools, NewSpirit::Widget


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