pmu has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Respected Monks,

I have been through the Dancer documentation and have searched the net as well. Yet, I do not come across a document that explains Dancer in complete details or something that written for folks who know basic Perl.

I have some basic Perl Scripting knowledge created a few scripts that capture, filter and e-mail outputs of certain commands. I now want to put the same reports on a webpage, where people can type in the serial number of the array and get the alerts. I want to build a webpage wherein, say for example, a user can put in the name of a server and get the details such as how much storage its accessing and from which storage arrays etc etc.

I also feel that my lack of knowledge is preventing me from understanding the basic dancer concepts. So how do I go about it?

Any pointers, suggestions would really help.

    Today, by far the best way to learn <<anything>> is to “look for an existing example ... not just a demo, but an example of a real thing ... then reverse engineer figure out how it works.”   Github is an excellent resource for doing that, although not the only one.   I have also found that it is very beneficial to “use the Source, Luke!”   In other words, look through the actual source-code of <<Dancer>>.   Very often, you will find comments in that source-code which give you strong clues as to “the designer’s intent.”

    Maybe the very-most important lesson to learn is that ... you are not the first.   There are, by now, thousands of web sites that have been implemented using <<Dancer>> and the complete source-code to many of them can probably somewhere be found.   Therefore, you do not have to start at ground-zero on anything, and ground-zero is never (these days) the right place to start.

    Respected Monks,

    Thank you for your guidance. Another Thank You for not ridiculing me and not asking me to "get off the darn lawn" :)

    Most Monks won't belittle you. (There are fairly-notable exceptions.) Welcome.
