NAME

App::cpang - CPAN GUI in Gtk2

VERSION

version 0.03

DESCRIPTION

It's about time we have a GUI for cpan. Apparently we're not that into GUI, but users are, so we need^Wshould care about it too.

This is a rough draft of a basic cpan GUI. It uses App::cpanminus instead of the basic cpan. It's not pretty, but it's a start.

You are more than welcome to help me work this into a beautiful GUI application for users to use in order to search/install/test(?) modules and applications from CPAN.

FOR USERS

If you are a user, please check cpang for how to use this.

This paper describes the module behind the application.

ATTRIBUTES

These are the attributes available in new().

title

Sets the title of the main window.

    use App::cpang;

    my $app = App::cpang->new( title => 'MY MAIN TITLE!' );

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

Surprisingly this creates a new object of type App::cpang.

run

Packs everything and runs the application.

    $app->run;

click($event)

Clicks on the "Install" step. This is bound to an event of the button in the interface.
