Ruddy is intended to be version 0 (actually exists a prealpha version) of a nntp/rss reader an a web based email system.

Benefits to the Perl Community

It will be an extensible web mail system written with perl and jquery, allowing to build mail based sites in an easy way.

It won't require any experience on perl or jquery or css to build the sites.


It will be delivered a front end with a page for entering the data and the page that shows that data.

There will be perl code jquery code and html code mainly plus the manuals.

Project Details

A more detailed description.

This version will serve to build email systems, something similar to project nival.

All the documents and code will be the Parrot Foundation copyright and will have The Artistic licence 2.0


The first month it will have a "user" page that shows the content to the user.

The second and third month a template for allowing for the user to change positions of diferente elemens and the color of the page an type of letter.

The third and fourth month will be used for trying to make the application as user friendly as posible and for making the programmer and user guides.

Project Schedule

The project will take 4 months

I can begin work one week after I am advised


I am a perl programmer and graphic programmer and I've been a parrot cage cleaner for about 8 months.


We already have lots of webmail systems, so I'm not sure this adds much value to the perl community.

Also, why would you write a perl webmail system and assign copyright to the Parrot foundation?

I have been a Parrot 'cage cleaner' for over two years. The applicant(s) claims also to be a Parrot 'cage cleaner', but I do not recognize the name. There is someone who signs his name as 'Igor' but he only submits nuisance tickets.


There are excelent email systems, but I,ve noticed that they use templates(a language), they don,t use the strengths of xhtml, css, and javascript(dynamic html)that encapsulates "jquery".

The idea is to build a content management system, I searched in internet and a didn't find a robust one(made with perl having a licence like the artistic licence), like joomla that is built in php and is sensational for building commercial aplications.

Is intended that this two projects ruddy and nival convert in pluggins for the cms after several versions.

Yes, I like more to learn about parrot instead of making tikets, my name is Igor and I have an alias that is quevlar(is my second email).

I said that I'm a cage cleaner because is the only form I have to the community knows me and know that I'm not going to run with the grant.
