    Looks very interesting. I just installed it.

    But is this really lightweight? I ended up installing 100 (!) modules. Installation lasted about 15 minutes.cpanm output is about 500 lines.

      Weight is relative :-)

        Yes, indeed. It is lightweight but it has a big footprint:-( But i had luck: i'm using perlbrew since some days.

      Hello everyone. I'm the author of Galileo.

      Yeah its not as lightweight as I would like in terms of module-install footprint. Then again, nearly all of that is DBIx::Class. While I do see plenty of room for improvement for Galileo, I doubt it will be lightening the DBIx::Class requirement. Not only does it allow me to write it without any direct SQL, it now (as of 0.012) can do database agnostic in-place schema upgrades! This is something I could never write alone.

      Galileo is really optimized for ease of install and use. No need to setup/configure LAMP etc. My primary goal was the "we need a website for this thing NOW" kind of moment. And as to writing in pure HTML, that's fine too, but this is written for users who are not capable of that. Install Galileo for an internal site edited by your secretary or your boss :-P

      For truly light-weight (runtime and module sense), you might consider Contenticious which stores markdown in files rather than in a database.


      (Sorry, my first post here, can I remove the dup below somehow?)

      I suggest you take a look at Igaro CMS ( It does everything you need, is extremely light weight and is Perl driven.
      You must be trolling. If you want a low module footprint you shouldn't be using perl to begin with since the language itself requires dozens of modules to be even remotely usable by modern standards. It's no wonder a CMS built in it would take hundreds. In fact, if it's *only* hundreds that's probably quite a feat!

        Something wrong with your beer last night?

        Fastnacht perhaps?

        Take that fish for free: ><(((º> (...and read the full thread goddamn please).

        Best regards and i hope this helps, Karl

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
