I think it would help newcomers getting an overview of the state of the Perl ecosystem if Devel::Declare would sport a similar deprecation notice as MooseX::Declare does.

Before deprecating a module there should be a pointer to alternatives. Are there any?

Alternative modules I know of that are serving roughly the same purpose: - https://metacpan.org/pod/Keyword::API - https://metacpan.org/pod/Keyword::Simple - https://metacpan.org/pod/Keyword::Declare (still in alpha) - https://metacpan.org/pod/Devel::CallParser (only XS)

By far the best advice would be to use the XS-level PL_keyword_plugin mechanism for real. Any of the pureperl wrappers of it are much much less powerful and interesting, and as far as I can tell all of them basically just present a mechanism to read bits of perl source as text and inject new source as text. None of them work at the *parser* API level, where you can just ask perl to parse perl, and build up new code and results of the parsing step for real. It would be a shame to switch to recommending other things that are little better than source filters when we could be pointing people at something *so* much better. -- Paul Evans
