Object framework for a *::Tiny module

zby has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I know there can never be an ultimate and objective answer for this question - but at least I hope to learn what is the popular choice here. I cannot decide myself what to choose for WebNano so please help me. The important point is that I try to subscribe to the ::Tiny way of doing things with this module so this question is really a poll aimed at people that care for these kind of modules.

Right now I am hesitating between Any::Moose and Class::XSAccessors with the following pros and cons.

Pro Any::Moose

  1. Possibly no XS
  2. Can mean Moose for those that like to use Moose extended features

Pro Class::XSAccessors

  1. Very fast
  2. Small
  3. With MooseX::NonMoose can also be extended to Moose with no hassle at all
  4. Used by Alias
What do you think?

    If you want to be ::Tiny, you shouldn't use either of 'em. See
      Thanks - that was informative. But I think I cannot afford this level of ::Tiny, it's more in the direction of ::Tiny as much as I can, but not really entering the competition :) For my defence Template::Tiny is neither completely dependencies free.

    Object::Simple because it is, well, simple. It fits in well with the ::Tiny model you are looking for.

    This is probably a naive question, but does Tiny (maximal code usage density?) bear any relation to Lite (minimal memory load?)? Does one come at the expense of the other?

    I only ask because generally I work to Lite principals, because I am usually memory limited rather than processor limited, however my code usually ends up pretty minimal too, so i am just wondering if this is just me, or whether the two themes are related?

    I should add that I don't check my code usage usually, and though I try to pack in functionality, I am aware that small doesn't always equal beautiful...

    Just a something something...
      Interesting question - I would like to see some discussion about it between the more knowledgeable than me :) Maybe you could ask that question at Alias's blog?
