While at your workplace you may not have a choice in the matter, the great thing about the growing poliferation of web-based apps is it doesn't technically matter what language the application is coded in. Given a common set of HTML templates, an app written with Java Servlets could look exactly like, and even interoperate with, a Perl CGI. (Now now, don't attack the choices. It was just an example.)

I guess what I'm trying to say is the idea of being able to code professionally in the language of your choice is not exactly "romantic"... it's very plausible.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr

    [Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
    Corion gives up
    [Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
    [LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
    [Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
    Discipulus bad sign..
    [Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
    [Discipulus]: LanX the fact is that my js ability is even poorer than my Perl one..
