Over the past 6 months or so, I’ve been working on a project to port goimports (or some version of it) to Perl. By now I’ve tested it on our Perl codebase at $work, on MetaCPAN and also some CPAN modules. It’s now at a state where I can say it’s getting to be a useful tool.

You can find perlimports on MetaCPAN and GitHub.

For a more thorough introduction, see my talk from the Perl and Raku Conference this past week.

To view the slides:

curl -o perlimports.html && open perlimports.html

You can also see an example of what perlimports does, via this pull request on the Perl::Critic repository.
