This morning I saw this post from marcus ramberg about MojoX::Routes::AsGraph. I liked the idea. But as I Catalyst instead of Mojo, I thought I could give a try and do the same thing for Catalyst dispatcher, and I’ve coded CatalystX::Dispatcher::AsGraph. For the moment only private actions are graphed.
You use it like this:
perl bin/catalyst_graph_dispatcher.pl --appname Arkham --output routes.png
You can create a simple script to output as text if you prefer:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CatalystX::Dispatcher::AsGraph; my $graph = CatalystX::Dispatcher::AsGraph->new_with_options(); $graph->run; print $graph->graph->as_txt;
The code is on github for the moment.
For thoses who are interested by visualization, I’ll publish soon some (at least I think) really nice visualisations about CPAN, Perl, and his community, that we have created at $work.
