We need you!

We need you as a user:

As a user you can search for packages, download and install them. If you have made some experiences with the packages, you can comment on them and rate them. This helps other users to find the best packages.

A site like OPAR lives with its users, so we welcome every new user!

We need you as a developer:

OPAR was inspired by the great CPAN -- the repository for Perl libraries. We hope that OPAR becomes such a great success as CPAN and that developers publish their OTRS packages.

If you have written an OTRS package that can be published under some Open Source Licenses, please create an OPM file and upload it to OPAR.

We need you for more general tasks

We want to create a great FAQ to help people to work with OTRS and OPAR. How to create an OPM file? How can I integrate OPAR in my OTRS? If you have any questions, please contact us.

More about OPAR

Perl

Perl is a language optimized for scanning arbitrary text files, extracting information from those text files, and printing reports based on that information. It’s also a good language for many system management tasks. The language is intended to be practical (easy to use, efficient, complete) rather than beautiful (tiny, elegant, minimal).

Perl strengths

  • CPAN - the worlds largest single-namespace software repository.
  • A strong culture for software testing, with more than 370 testing modules and almost every CPAN package coming with tests.
  • CPAN Testers - a volunteer community that tests all software uploaded to CPAN on all kinds of OSes and Perl versions, and uploading the results to a central repository.
  • Vibrant grass-roots communitis all over the globe, refreshingly untainted by corporate tools. Find your local Perl Mongers group! :)
  • Active support communities at PerlMonks and on irc.perl.org.
  • Conferences all over the planet. Most of them are low-key and informal, and all of them have a high signal/noise ratio.
  • Active blogging and scenes, with the Perl Iron Man competition, blogs.perl.org, Perl-Nachrichten.de as highlights.
