Perl's CPAN system is its killer app: a massive collection of libraries for nearly any task at hand. The code on the CPAN ranges from dreadful to superb, but the code used to build CPAN packages has typically hovered around "mediocre," largely due to artificial constraints. Dist::Zilla breaks free of constraints like performance, footprint, and good taste to provide you with unbridled power. Read more.
