07:37 oiami I got this error when I try to start metacpan-explorer , https://www.dropbox.com/s/7s8xaf47yhetd32/Screenshot%202014-05-19%2014.32.35.png
07:37 dipsy [ Dropbox - Screenshot 2014-05-19 14.32.35.png ]
07:37 oiami any idea what's wrong I've done ?
07:40 omega oiami: did you init the submodules? bootstrap seems to be a git submodule
07:40 omega so maybe those files haven't been checked out?
07:41 oiami nope , didn't do anything before
07:41 oiami how can I do that ?
07:42 omega git submodule init && git submodule update
07:45 oiami seem git submodule init has been done  .. I got  Submodule 'inc/bootstrap' (https://github.com/twitter/bootstrap.git) registered for path 'inc/bootstrap'
07:45 dipsy [ twbs/bootstrap · GitHub ]
07:46 oiami and it's loading something after ran git submodule update
07:46 omega that is what init does..
07:46 omega then you run git submodule update to fetch the content for the submodule
07:46 oiami aha
07:47 oiami is it common problem that everyone supposed to know to fix that ?
07:47 omega yeah :) thats how git submodules work
07:47 omega http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-Tools-Submodules
07:47 dipsy [ Git - Submodules ]
07:49 oiami omega:  is it the same thing as Rebuilding the static files on README of https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-explorer does ?
07:49 dipsy [ CPAN-API/metacpan-explorer · GitHub ]
07:49 omega that rebuilds static versions of the css and javascript
07:49 omega so no, not the same
07:50 omega build.sh would also fail without the submodules init and update
07:50 omega since it would also be missing the files
07:50 oiami I see , ok , I got it running now , thx omega

18:52 ether the "Dependency graph" link on each release page seems to simply go back to the release page
18:54 haarg it's meant to put an overlay on the page with the graph - working here

20:17 punter Are the plans to ever make metacpan Mojolicious-based?
20:17 haarg no, why would there be?
20:18 punter So I can start working on it! :-)
20:19 punter I don't have the brain resources to learn a second framework
20:19 punter But I might, nevertheless
20:24 haarg there's still plenty that can be worked on without fully learning catalyst
20:24 mst punter: it's using Catalyst, which is designed for large-scale sites like metacpan
20:24 mst punter: why port to a framework designed for real-time stuff when metacpan doesn't do any? that would be *silly*
20:26 punter correct
20:26 punter ok
20:28 lifeofguenter joined #metacpan
20:30 punter Does the API allow us to search for a simple user (not an author)?
20:30 punter Does the author endpoint return ordinary users as well?
20:31 punter Reason I'm asking: I need to grab a user's favorites if all I know about them is their github id
20:32 ranguard punter: https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-examples is useful for looking at examples
20:32 dipsy [ CPAN-API/metacpan-examples · GitHub ]
20:33 ranguard but I think /author is only authors, not sure there is a /user equiv atm
20:34 ether is Mojolicious really designed for realtime? I thought its point was "everything you need in one box"
20:36 ranguard ether: think Mojolicious has lots of websocket stuff - this is from glimpses of conversations :)
20:41 trs punter: try this: http://explorer.metacpan.org/#/633846eef99b14cb8936
20:42 mst ether: "Mojolicious - Real-time web framework"
20:42 mst ether: the all-in-one-box is basically a side effect of ending up getting angry with the various wheels that didn't play nice with async-all-the-things
20:45 trs punter: bah, sorry, hold a sec. I kept fiddling and it saved my changes.
20:46 trs ok there
20:49 neilb joined #metacpan
21:46 punter trs, thanks
21:46 punter trs, But is that only good for authors, or does it do ordinary users as well?
21:46 punter thanks, in any case
21:54 neilb joined #metacpan
22:03 punter so, it's not possible?
22:03 haarg afaik it currently isn't
22:03 punter k thanks
22:12 punter How can anyone retrieve a user's id?
22:13 punter I mean, of what use is the 'user' field in api/v0/favorite, if one can't relate a userId to a user
22:13 punter so there has to be a way to get a userId
22:13 punter is there one?
22:14 punter What ways are there to get a user's id?
22:19 bowtie joined #metacpan
22:22 oalders punter: that *is* the user's internal id
22:22 oalders which is only really useful internally at this point, if the user hasn't connected a PAUSE id
22:23 punter oalders, I want to retrieve all of a certain user's favorites. I guess if I have the user id, I can do it. How do I get a user (any user's) id?
22:24 oalders punter: have you looked at https://metacpan.org/pod/MetaCPAN::Client::Favorite ?
22:24 dipsy [ MetaCPAN::Client::Favorite - A Favorite data object - metacpan.org ]
22:24 punter no
22:25 oalders that should fetch the ++ data for you if you have the id
22:25 punter But my question was "how do I get a user's id?"
22:25 punter So how do I get it?
22:25 punter a
22:26 oalders if it's an author, https://api.metacpan.org/author/OALDERS?fields=user
22:26 punter If it's not?
22:26 oalders you don't
22:26 punter ok :-)
22:26 oalders essentially non-PAUSE users don't really exist for a lot of cases
22:26 oalders because we didn't plan well for them
22:26 punter ok
22:26 punter Maybe they will exist in the future
22:27 punter mayben't it?
22:27 oalders if someone steps up to do the work they will for sure
22:27 punter ok. Is there a way to learn the ins and outs of MetaCPAN programming?
22:28 punter just have to fork the code and set up an instance at home, eh?
22:28 oalders yes, but there is some work being done on the docs this week actually
22:29 oalders it should improve a lot over the summer with our GSoC and OPfW work
22:29 oalders we could expose the user's id under https://metacpan.org/account/profile if they need to enter it manually somewhere
22:31 punter that seems like a good idea, oalders. I only want it for perlmodules.net, to allow my users to import their metacpan favorites into a personal perlmodules.net list
22:31 punter It's not super-urgent tho
22:34 oalders punter: can you create an issue on metacpan-web?
22:34 oalders would be trivial to implement
22:35 punter okay! thanks
22:36 punter Have you decided that you want the favorites list to be public?
22:36 punter can't see a reason for it not to be
