IMHO. In fact, we'll probably end up ripping out Mojolicious and converting those pages to CGI to simplify our software code base.

This comes off sounding a bit like: In fact, Perl 5.10 has so many weird conventions and features we don't use, we'll probably end up converting all our scripts back to 5.4.

    LoL :)

    It's meant in a practical way and more like: All of our programs are in Perl, except for a few that are in Python and no one here knows Python, so if we can get those translated to Perl then we can ditch the Python stuff and our code base will be easier to maintain because we'll have fewer technologies to know. (That was reality for us too until I rewrote the last Python program in Perl a few months ago.)

    In the abstract, there's nothing wrong with Python for those of you who like it. In the practical sense, it's an issue for us here because no one here knows Python so it makes our job harder.

    Since ~97% of our code is CGI, why maintain a vast minority of code in a framework no one here really knows and slows us down? (How did it get here? Someone wrote it as a proof of concept and then checked it in just before they left for another job and at the time there was no one to prevent that -- a sad tale.)

      I understand and Iím one of the few remaining CGI apologists. I do think Mojo and other modern kits are drastically better if deployment is right and devs have experience with MVCish code.
