I'm trying to simplify deployment for standalone web apps, ie, browser based GUI apps. Instead of running under Apache or somesuch, a web app would include its own web server module (eg, HTTP::Server::Simple,
HTTP::Daemon, HTTP::Daemon::Threaded, etc.). Assuming the app might eventually be packaged into an exe (via PAR, perl2exe, etc.), or even installed as a std. Perl package, it would be nice to have all the assets handled in the "Perlish" way, wo/ the hassle of trying to figure out the directory structure where the assets reside.
in reply to Re: Web App Resource/Asset Bundler ?
in thread Web App Resource/Asset Bundler ?
So if the assets are all rolled into Perl modules, the app can just introspect to get datetime info, and roll HTTP headers as appropriate, doing any decoding/decompressing as needed.
