in thread I LOVE PLACK!!!!

Now just for fun install Mojolicious, and play around with Mojolicious::Lite. It can sit on top of Plack. Don't worry about its templating; it provides a means of layering in whatever system you prefer. Just see how much fun things like the stash and routes are.

I don't guarantee you will like it. But I do guarantee it will be interesting to fiddle with for awhile.

From the docs:

# Using Mojolicious::Lite will enable "strict" and "warnings" use Mojolicious::Lite; # Route with placeholder get '/:foo' => sub { my $self = shift; my $foo = $self->param('foo'); $self->render(text => "Hello from $foo!"); }; # Start the Mojolicious command system app->start;

It's not for everyone. And it's maybe not as flexible as Catalyst. But for rapid development of a web application it's fun.

...and as I mentioned, it can use Plack as its back-end, which means you can still have the Plack love.

    Yeh, I had a play with mojolicious::lite a few weeks ago, just before I wrote Slang. It seems pretty funky, but one question I had was what if there are dozens or hundreds of routes?

    Typically the way I organise things my routes are laid out using the filesystem;


    It appears that under mojo you have to create a route in the program for each one and I can see that becoming quite unwieldy quite quickly for the size of apps I tend to build.

    Is there a way around that? I haven't looked into it enough to be sure.

      Routes can have wildcards at any position. So userca/password and usercb/password and usercd/password could all be one route with different users. What you do with the portion of the route that fills the wildcard is up to you. You could, for example, let your program logic deal with wildcards at the /forgotten and /reset level, or you could let routes send them to different models. In other words, you do have control over whether the routes lead to a destination or to logic. I'm sure I'm not being clear (have a cold that seems to put my head in a fog), but look at Mojolicious::Guides::Routing for examples.
