in reply to What does Mojolicious do exactly and is it right for me?

Arg, I hate to ask such a dumb question ... how it differs from CGI, and so on. I was hoping that someone might give me some good examples of what they'd use Mojolicious for; what its advantages are, and so on. Basically, is it right for what I am doing?

Um, go to http://mojolicio.us/, watch the slideshow, watch the video .... just like CGI.pm takes care of CGI protocol stuff for you (header/param/redirect), mojolicious takes care of the exact same things using , except instead of writing if (my $session = param('session')) { ... } elsif (my $host = param('host')) { ... you write

get '/' => \&default; get '/cookies', \&show_cookies; post '/preview', \&do_preview; ...

    I second watching the mojocasts they helped me alot when i started out with mojolicious.

    I haven't used CGI much before so my ability to compare the two isn't quite there, but i find development in mojolicious very quick once you learn the lay of the land.
