I agree completely that the choice of template engine is a matter of taste - Template Toolkit, HTML::Template and the others are nice tools. I've tried most of them, partly because I sometimes teach this stuff and wanted to understand the various pros and cons.

For my own work I've settled on HTML::Mason. Although the installation is typically more involved than several of the others, I don't need to do that often - usually only when I re-install the whole Apache/mod_perl/Mason shebang. I like the the fact that I can create small components with any mixture of html and Perl that I like, and re-use and test them in various pages; the test/debug cycle of these components feels like what I typically need to do with Perl subroutines. I also like the fact that I don't need to learn a different "html scripting" language for use in the HTML; I can use real Perl.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
