PGXN: :Site

CPAN version Build Status

PGXN, the PostgreSQL Extension network, is a central distribution system for open-source PostgreSQL extension libraries. It consists of four basic parts:

  • PGXN Manager: An upload and distribution infrastructure for extension developers.

  • PGXN API: A centralized index and API of distribution metadata.

  • PGXN Search: This site, for searching extensions and perusing their documentation.

  • PGXN Client: A command-line client for downloading, testing, and installing extensions.

Who’s Made This?

I did. I’m David Wheeler, inveterate Perl and PostgreSQL hacker. I love the extensibility of PostgreSQL and have long been a fan of CPAN, the Perl community’s distributed collection of Perl software and documentation. But PostgreSQL’s extensibility is not well-known, and it’s difficult to find the extensions that do exist. I’d like to solve that problem. Care to help?
