by Gabor Szabo (SZABGAB)

The Flavio Poletti channel

Restart from skfold

by Flavio Poletti (POLETTIX)

I was wondering why have Flavio not posted for so long

skfold is usable!

by Flavio Poletti (POLETTIX)

skfold is a universal scaffolding tool. It sounds like a very nice project. It could be extended to all kinds of non-Perl projects to provide an 'easy way to get started with X'. The question though how can you make skafold easily distributable? Asking the users to install Perl and on top of that install skafold would probably limit the reach of the project.
