Distar – A CPAN Distribution Author Tool

Not all authors agree with the trade-offs made by tools like Dist::Zilla. Matt S Trout wanted an author tool, but started from a different perspective. What needs to be added on top of what ExtUtils::MakeMaker provides to make it a viable author tool? The result of this thought process was Distar.

Distar is a tool that adds just enough to ExtUtils::MakeMaker so you can’t bungle a release. And it is small enough to be able to read and understand the entire codebase at the same time.

Available via Github, not CPAN
