Perl: Maypole

  • BeerDB. Maypole is a Struts-style web application framework by

Simon Cozens, and looks very nice. The number 1 attractive feature (compared to any Java MVC framework ;) is encapsulated in this tagline:

Maypole: if you’re writing code, YOU’RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG.

If/when I wind up writing a web app sometime soon, I may just give this a try…

One thing I’d like to see is a CGI::Application-based Maypole module, for prototyping (and for low-overhead installs, where mod_perl is too much to install). Looks like it’s well on the way.
