Prophet is currently undergoing a major refactoring, so we recommend installing the released packages if you just want to try using it.



Distibution Packages

  • Debian
  • Ubuntu. If you're running one of these operating systems, you can install the latest prophet release like this:

apt-get install libprophet-perl


The following command will get you a copy of the source tree you can install:

git clone git://

The development branches require Dist::Zilla to build.

Starting from v0.751, the tagged releases are already prepared by Dist::Zilla and can be built with:

cd prophet

perl Build.PL

./Build test

./Build install

In the hopefully unlikely event that Prophet doesn't pass its tests, please tell the developers about it so we can improve things.
