Against the advice of some of the folks in #catalyst, I decided to use HTML::Prototype.
do you recall the reasons given against HTML::Prototype? it has been a while (over a year?) since i visited #catalyst and folks were still recommending prototype at the time!

    It's funny, when I explained what I wanted to do to jrockway, he commented that HTML::Protoype was fine. I peeked in the other day while HuckinFappy was asking around, and it seems dojo and mochikit are in favor by the #catalyst folk.

    I believe the specific quotes I saw were something like "prototype == matt's script archive" and "Prototype does the Javascript equivalent of stuffing UNIVERSAL with methods". Note, these are not my thoughts, and I couldn't find any substantiation for these assertions.

    But, it seems to work OK for the things that I have so far found that I want to do, so naturally YMMV.

      You got those quotes right. BUt I'm so far over my own head, I couldn't offer any opinion on them (since I'd never heard of any of the toolkits!)

      Ok, so it seems based on everyone's replies, and the #catalyst discussions, that if I'm going to get too far with Catalyst and TT, and accomplish some of what I've got pictured, I'm going to have to move into javascript and ajax.

      This is a tad daunting for someone who is very proficient in perl, but still hand-codes HTML in late 1990's style.

      Can anyone point me in a good direction for a tutorial of some sort that I can work through to wrap my brain around all of this?

      Thanks,
      Jeff

        Pity you didn't go to YAPC::NA 2006, as there were a few good talks about ajax with respect to perl integration. For example, these slides might contain enough of a tutorial for you, especially given that it gears toward doing it in perl. Here's another one, with a slightly different topic. And if you're interested in any of the other talks for which slides have been put online, they're right here.

      Prototype is showing its age now, but it does work. I personally don't like the way the Catalyst plugin works... but it's Good Enough.
