Sad news, and I frown upon the reasons for its going away. From the announcement:

In recent years maintenance has become a burden. Most of the site is running 2005 era Perl code.

As if old code would rot away. And below in the comments, this (emphasis mine):

That's a shame. I prefer the clean interface of over the metacpan site.

Where's the source code? May be kinda fun to play around with.

If you meant the source code of cpansearch, it has never been published.

Wait, what? It has never been published? And then maintenance becomes a burden? Whilst I am deeply thankful for Graham for having it written in the first place, and all maintainers who helped to keep it running, I have to say:

Congrats, maintainers for not leveraging support from the community which this wonderful tool helped to build.

Perl itself is in git for a long time now. Why didn't that happen with the code for that site?

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
