( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I used to write web stuff, I frequently used CGI.pm's HTML-generators while prototyping my code. Since I used CGI.pm anyways, I could whip up something that looked butt ugly but worked really fast, as proof of concept or as a starting point. Then, when the basic functionality was there, I'd create (or get from a designer) a HTML template and used HTML::Template instead.

I've heard lots of good about TT as well, but haven't used it myself. I like HTML::Template because it only does a few things, does it well and fast, and that helps keeping the logic in the code as much as possible.

I sincerely agree that one should not use CGI.pm to generate the HTML for anything "real" though. That is still mixing markup and code in a bad way, though for some small things, a foreach around some $q->li's are definitely a fast way to get the job done. YAGNI sometimes applies to templates as well. :)
