JavaScript Archive Network: The CPAN for JS

Category: Editorial, Perl

<>p>One of the great gems of Perl is CPAN. Rael noticed that some Perl hackers are jumping into some JavaScript code, and built JSAN, a place to find comprehensive information on JavaScript libraries.

As Rael says…

The most interesting find in the archive thus far has to be JSAN library itself, allowing scripters to import rather than <script src="... other libraries:

 // Or in a library.
  try {
      JSAN.use('Some.Library');
  } catch (e) {
      alert("Requires JSAN");
  }

Very cool.

The phrasing there makes it sounds like JSAN was created by Rael, but Rael is just blogging about it. It was created by Casey West along with some other folks.
