web app modules neededby tstock (Curate)
|on Oct 10, 2005 at 02:12 UTC||Need Help??|
tstock has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am in the design phase of a new web app and I am making a list of modules I want to use for different purposes. Some are pretty straight forward: DBI, CGI, Template, others more dictated by experience like Log::Log4perl, Class::Phrasebook::SQL and Config::IniFiles. I'm looking for suggestions from Monks with different experiences for recommendations on modules they normally use for this purpose.
Two problem areas I don't have a clear idea on what to use and could use suggestions on are:
1. User management and state. I am on a hosted account, without mod_perl and would like a light weight user management and session management framework. Ideally, this would save user tables to MySQL.
2. Nice charts. I would like to be able to generate nice, anti aliased graphics and charts. Ideally, something that would use SVG to make the graph, and something that would turn that SVG into a PNG.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
