Modules written and improved for TAEB

While working on TAEB, the authors have worked on several other projects to add features and fixes, as well as start new projects. Here's a list of new modules written by TAEB hackers to make TAEB better:
  • MooseX::Singleton

    Sartak rewrote MooseX::Singleton from its unreleased "around new" state; others have built upon it. TAEB has since moved to MooseX::ClassAttribute due it be being faster and better.

  • MooseX::Role::Matcher

    doy wrote MooseX::Role::Matcher as a generalization of old item match code.

  • Tie::Handle::TtyRec

    Sartak wrote this to give TAEB ttyrec output without having to worry about the ttyrec format.

  • Games::Mastermind::Cracker

    Sartak wrote this so that TAEB wouldn't have to use his original C program to open the castle drawbridge.

  • Log::Dispatch::Twitter

    Sartak wrote this to automatically tweet TAEB errors and TAEB deaths.

  • Log::Dispatch::Channels

    doy wrote this to give TAEB an arbitrary number of logfiles with no fuss. Simply writing to a new log name creates a new logfile.

  • NetHack::Item
  • NetHack::Menu
  • NetHack::FOV
  • NetHack::Monster::Spoiler
  • All written for expressly TAEB. They've been factored out so that they could have sane test suites and be useful to other projects. NetHack::Item in particular is a gargantuan redesign of TAEB's old item code to fix a number of flaws.

And now a list of modules improved by TAEB hackers for TAEB:

  • Moose

    Sartak and doy have contributed a lot to Moose just for TAEB. (TAEB was Sartak's first Moose application, even)

  • Devel::REPL

    Sartak added quite a few plugins to make TAEB's debug REPL better.

  • IO::Socket::Telnet

    Sartak wrote the original version for Interhack. Added callbacks and made some improvements on day one of TAEB development.

  • IO::Pty::Easy

    doy wrote the original version for Interhack. Made many fixes found through constant use by TAEB.

  • Continuity

    Sartak made the debug logging pluggable to put debug messages from Continuity into TAEB's logfiles.

  • PadWalker

    doy submitted a patch to PadWalker ( #41710) to fix a crashbug tickled a lot in TAEB's REPL.
