Dear monks I am trying to set up a simple CMS for my university department. We need a few simple things that no exisiting CMS supports, so I am drawn to Perl, because I know that I can do what I want. At the moment I use HTML:Mason, but I want to give my colleagues direct write access, and Mason, while I love it dearly, is way too low-level for them.
I've two strong core candidates Metadot and WebGui, and one outlier, Slashcode. WebGui looks neat, but the publcily available documentation is not good. Metadot has better documentation, but looks a little more complex. Slashcode has some obvious merits, but would be hard to customise for our needs.
Anyone got any experience with these two packages? Both claim to be widely used. Any unexpected gotcha's? Any other recommendations based on your personal experience of a Perl based CMS?
