Hey monks,

Recently i've been working on perl discussion/CMS software, and was told by diotalevi that I was reinventing the wheel (the wheel being an MVC like Jifty, Catalyst, ROR, etc) with the idea and code that I had. I took diotalevi's advice, and tried BOTH Catalyst and Jifty. Catalyst seems to be working, as opposed to Jifty (winders doesn't seem to want to let Scalar::Util build and run properly, which in turn will not allow me to run the jifty server command properly); however, I can't run Catalyst on my host because the server it provides isn't allowed to run because of the firewall my host uses UPDATE: server provided is for development only :-). Jifty is a feasible alternative except for the fact that I can't get my application started because of those errors stated above.

I'm wondering, am I missing something with Jifty, or Catalyst, so much that I'm doing something wrong and the solution is right in front of my face? Or do I honestly need to look at going a different path? I don't have the money to upgrade to a dedicated host yet, so I need to find something that's not going to involve that kind of route.

Please, bathe me in your infinite wisdom, kind monks.



In reply to Catalyst, Jifty MVCs too "expensive"...feasible alternative? by stonecolddevin
