in thread Writing a web message board from scratch

Let's supose I want to write a widget web application in perl. Noone has ever written a widget web application before so there is no existing code to study,
That also is not true. You need to look around a bit. OpenInteract has widgets. One could argue that the building blocks of Splash in Template toolkit allowed me to craft the new design in far less time than I could have from scratch. Both SlashCode and Everything2 have many widgets from which to build bigger pages. And there's the whole HTML::Mason content engine schemes.

The problem is not that there's not enough models to steal from, but that there are perhaps too many! Please don't start from scratch! See if you can reuse all or parts of these!
