in reply to Prettier Perl websites

I've got to build a web interface for a database in the coming months and will keep this in mind.
I've used CGI in the past but I can never make it look as nice as I like ( Me being crap not CGI ). I was even tempted to switch to a Java Applet for the coming project but this API may just persuaded me to stay with perl.

    I'm still at the CGI end at the moment. Want to move onto mod_perl soon though

    I've used CGI::FormBuilder combined with TT2 successfully. You could look at HTML::Template as well.

    I attempt to separate content from markup from style from processing and use stylesheets for style, TT2 to display content and markup and CGI::FormBuilder to specify and process the content where applicable.

    Not sure where that is in the MVC world - not sure I have got *there* yet - but I'll agree the mojolicious site has some prettiness to it. However, there is no reason why a site can't be pretty when the processing is done with Perl. After all, the styling is in the CSS not the CGI.

    I think it is more of an attitude about what a site *should* look like and also audience attitude. My first impression of mojolicious is that of dumbing-down - not saying the site does that by any means - just that is my first impression. That is my personal reaction to mojolicious genre of styling out there but then I came to interpret a different style of site as informative.
