in thread Help with updating a Perl Resources sticky thread at a web developer forum?

Thanks, I've Moose on there twice (heh)... I've been rearranging the HTML page all day today, so now I have a general "Modules" section near the top which mentions both Moose separately (it's kinda killer-app-ish) and Task::Kensho for those who are so new to Perl/CPAN they need help weeding.

I will check out the other two, but other than Moose, I'm kinda wavering on mentioning other specific modules (I know I have XML::Twig in there but it may not stay). I'm more hoping to weed out the bad stuff on there and get good listings of the groups Frameworks (Gantry and Rose are big question marks! and only just found Web::Simple), Templating Libraries and SQL/Database stuff that web guys are going to be especially interested in. I'm not even sure if I want Perl_Object_Environment to stay in there (having trouble figuring out what it does exactly, didn't sound like something general enough.. correct me if I'm wrong!).

Thanks, and keep them coming.

Edit/update Partially I also wanted to kind of address some of the comments both in the thread later down "Wow thats a lot of stuff to look at. Maybe somebody could rank it as to where a newbie might start?" as well as similar questions that have been floating around the forums (people making wild claims such as that "PERL doesn't have any frameworks, use Ruby/Python/PHP"). So, also addressing that a bit.

    Thanks, I've Moose on there twice (heh)... I've been rearranging the HTML page all day today, so now I have a general "Modules" section near the top which mentions both Moose separately (it's kinda killer-app-ish) Yep, Moose is a good app. and Task::Kensho for those who are so new to Perl/CPAN they need help weeding. I will check out the other two, but other than Moose, I'm kinda wavering on mentioning other specific modules (I know I have XML::Twig in there but it may not stay).

    I don't know very much about Gantry or Rose, I think they are not used very much nowadays. I think there's definitely a trend here ... right now , the following are very popular : Catalyst, Mojolicious,CGI::Application.

    About the ones you mentioned Rose hasn't been updated since 2008 and I really haven't heard anything about Gantry(although I see the last release on cpan is 2010).

    Templating Libraries and SQL/Database stuff that web guys are going to be especially interested in. I'm not even sure if I want Perl_Object_Environment to stay in there (having trouble figuring out what it does exactly, didn't sound like something general enough.. correct me if I'm wrong!).

    POE is already in Task::Kensho which you mentioned earlier.

    Thanks, and keep them coming.

    Yes I'm sure you will have many suggestion, but the main thing is to identify what each suggested module does and see if there are overlaps and weed out unnecessary ones.

    Using the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition, I moved myself from level 1 to level 3 because of three main things.

    • Perldoc site.
    • The Perl Best Practices book.
    • And this site right here: Perl Monks.

    These are the triumvirate for me. Perldoc is the ultimate language reference. PBP is the ultimate style guide for when you are overwhelmed by TMTOWTDI. And Perl Monks is for everything else.

    Note Well: I prefer to teach myself by running example code snippets and then reading specific reference material for more detail. I usually do not have the patience for tutorials with lots of exposition (for example, the Camel book and Learning Perl). If this is also your learning style, then I am hard pressed to think of anything more you would need to get a good grasp of base Perl.
