in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?

I like to whine to my friends about how scary and huge Perl 6 is shaping up to be, and how I want nothing to do with it. I started messing a lot with Ruby because I felt lost and bewildered by Perl 6.

Truth is, I'm very excited. The Apocalypses scare me a little bit, until it occurs to me how few of Perl's advanced features I use. I skim my way through most of the Camel book, but it's really the function section I put to use. It's likely to be the same thing with Perl 6. The only new features that will really affect my work happen to be the ones that make things easier: fixed arg passing, along with improved type and object systems.

So yeah, I'll use it. I'll keep using Ruby, though. The older I get, the easier it is for me to love more than one programming language :-)

[Corion]: Once more, I'm looking for a sane client-side framework, but I guess these don't exist. Everything I look at either uses a weirdo home-grown templating language (like Angular in all its incarnations) or uses weirdo Javascript incarnations (like ...
[Corion]: ... Inferno.js, which uses ES2015) or uses some horrible amount of Javascript infrastructure before you can even render a single file.
[Corion]: I'd really like to create a dynamic frontend for my Google Keep clone, but so far, all the templating solutions seem to bring their own template language or require me to hand-code everything in (their own flavour of) Javascript. I'd like something ...
[Corion]: ... that can use templates from the HTML (via <script language="text/ template">... my template ...</script> and otherwise gets out of my way. But it seems that is not how the Javascript world is, currently :-/
