wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Dancer2 BLOG Module?
My most esteemed brothers and sisters of the Monastery. I come before you this day pleading for your help in locating an elusive module. Please help me with my humble quest...
I wrote a couple of web UIs for clients several years ago using Dancer. I thought it was an outstanding framework, and so when the time came to do another one, I went back to it. I discovered Dancer2! Okay, so far, so good. I have 90% of my application working. There are several things I lack:
I am fully aware that there are wonderful applications that do these things, but in the context of this internal tool, it would be significantly better if I could incorporate all of them into the same Dancer2 UI.
I am currently reading up on AJAX, and testing out a few of the AJAX related modules. What I need is for the user to be able to see live updates (EG: when another app logs something is finished, I want to automagically show that update on the management screen of my app). I need to be able to allow the user to drag the entries up and down on the list to put them into the order they want to see them in. If you know of a better direction that AJAX, please let me know that -- I was told AJAX was "the very best tool for that," so it is what I am looking into now.
Back in the Dancer (v1) days, I downloaded a nice BLOG module. It allowed replies to replies, and nested them nicely with a single click to open/close the next level. It was relatively simply (no graphics upload or WYSIWYG), but it was everything I need for this app. But I cannot seem to find it now. If anyone out there has used it (or better yet, is maintaining it), I'd love a pointer to it. I'm more than happy to contribute changes I might make back to the project! If I cannot find one, I might have to write one, but why reinvent the wheel???
I am kind of old-school, I guess, but I still prefer a WIKI for my documentation and such. I looked, and just could not find a good perl based WIKI. I was sure I had one back in the day, but it has become lost to me. I would PREFER to link it into the Dancer2 UI, but if I have to have a standalone WIKI, then so be it. Everything else will be in perl, so a perl based one is what I am looking for. I really don't want to write one of these...
Thanks for your help!
