Recently i've been working on perl discussion/CMS software, and was told by diotalevi that I was reinventing the wheel (the wheel being an MVC like Jifty, Catalyst, ROR, etc) with the idea and code that I had. I took diotalevi's advice, and tried BOTH Catalyst and Jifty. Catalyst seems to be working, as opposed to Jifty (winders doesn't seem to want to let Scalar::Util build and run properly, which in turn will not allow me to run the jifty server command properly); however,
I can't run Catalyst on my host because the server it provides isn't allowed to run because of the firewall my host uses UPDATE: server provided is for development only :-). Jifty is a feasible alternative except for the fact that I can't get my application started because of those errors stated above.
I'm wondering, am I missing something with Jifty, or Catalyst, so much that I'm doing something wrong and the solution is right in front of my face? Or do I honestly need to look at going a different path? I don't have the money to upgrade to a dedicated host yet, so I need to find something that's not going to involve that kind of route.
Please, bathe me in your infinite wisdom, kind monks.
