in reply to Perl: Why you no modern web framework?

Your question title says "web framework," but it appears you're really looking for a CMS. There are Perl CMSs, if that's what you're looking for.

It may be because Perl programmers want more lower-level control. I've used Drupal, Wordpress, and other CMSs, and I always get frustrated when I can't get them to do what I want (or more often, not do what I don't want) without digging through lots of files of code. If you're a programmer, rather than a user, and you want to do more than just publish content and tweak its style, you get more control by starting with a framework like Dancer or Catalyst and just creating what you need on top of that.

[Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
[marto]: well, their mother let them sleep till 15:00 & 12:00 last week, which didn't help them adjust :P
[Corion]: I was "productive" over the weekend in the sense that I revived my old "Perlmonks on SQLite" code, which likely means I can get a test instance back up running on my webhost. Small steps :)
[Corion]: marto: Ow, no, that doesn't help at all :)
[choroba]: Related to the new release, anyone could explain this or this tester report?
[Discipulus]: hello crew! marto thanks for the message: but I how can I help? i'm testing cpan Padre atm problem with Client::Debug
[choroba]: I don't happen to have 5.10.0 nor 5.8.5 handy...

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
