in reply to Catalyst vs CGI::Application
I am currently "on the horns of the same dilemma." And in my case, it is for a fairly modest web-site whose content will actually, for the most part, be static. What is important in my case, and I suspect also in King Kong's, is "will I box myself into a hole and just have to start all over again?"
I personally would like to see more coverage in-general of web sites that are NOT blogs, are NOT content-management systems for the uninitiated. In other words, the sort of "on-line marketing-communications -slash- customer-support site" that tens of thousands of companies big and small actually have.
So let's try to open up this conversation a little bit more. Let's say that the site isn't a blog, isn't going to have tens of thousands of hits an hour, needs to be fairly simple to manage, and will be shepherded by a Perl-person who certainly wants to improve his-or-her coding and management skills without becoming bald in the process... What would you say to them, and why?
