Project in Raku

ovedpo15 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello monks!
Recently I started studying Raku. I didn't find a Raku community so I hope it's ok to ask those questions here.
After studying Raku for a while I want to do some project using the PL. I want to implement a code coverage utility for Raku. I have some questions:

1. I may be wrong but it looks like the Raku community is not so active. I want to get information about the community and I'm not sure where to start.
2. Is there really a use/need of the code coverage utility for Raku? I came across with moarvm and it looks like it provides a way to create a coverage report.
3. How should I try solving this issue?

I'm just trying to understand the problem I'm trying to solve, before solving it.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      Thank you for your message :)
      Basically I want write a Devel::Cover version for Raku with which you can measure the function/line/branch coverage, while solving Devel::Cover's bugs.

    Raku communities that I am more aware of, besides here in some fashion, are ...

    • collected under #rakulang tag (if one cares to tag) on;
    • /r/rakulang sub-reddit on;
    • IRC #raku channel on (past chat).
