Create JavaScript Release Widget/Badge for MetaCPAN

completed by: Stanley Cen

mentors: Paul Johnson, Florian Ragwitz

Design a widget/badge which uses JavaScript to query the MetaCPAN API for the latest information on a release, eg:

The badge should include: author, date, distribution name, version, a link to the direct download URL as well as a link to the MetaCPAN release page.

This badge could then be used on web sites for Perl projects which exist on CPAN. It will always be in sync with the latest upload for a project, so it's useful for keeping up with version numbers as well as providing links to the official documentation which exists on MetaCPAN.
