ghenry has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all,

Been a while, but was wondering if Module Starter is still the way to go for a new module skeleton? I'll be using Moose and probably Module::Install. Thanks.

    Greetings.

    Now, in June 2017, are Module::Starter and Dist::Zilla still the State of the Art? Asking so that I can convert some old modules before updating.

    TIA

      I use, and have used for very many years, Module::Starter to create every single distribution I write. I know that Dist::Zilla is very actively maintained, but I use ExtUtils::MakeMaker for building instead, so I can't really comment on it specifically.

        From what I can tell on a cursory basis, Dist::Zilla will generate ExtUtils::MakeMaker code or Module::Build code, the two are not necessarily mutex. I just it just depends on how "meta" I want to get.
