August 22, 2006 - 2006 3rd Quarter Vote Results

The latest round of grant voting has ended and I've informed all of the applicants of the status of their grant. Two grants were approved this quarter "Porting PyYAML to Perl" and "Mango", a Web 2.0 ecommerce application built using the Handel and Catalyst frameworks. The full applications will be posted after this.

The PyYAML port is to be done by Ingy (Brian Ingerson) and was approved because frankly, YAML support in Perl ain't all that great and there are few better qualified that Ingy to get this done.

The Mango application will be put together by Chris Laco. The committee really liked this proposal in large part because it will be a great app that could have widespread potential outside of the Perl community. Many folks were initially drawn to Perl because they found useful code written in Perl and naturally turned toward the language. We'd like to continue that.

As usual, we'd love to hear your feedback on these.


I, for one, am extremely happy regarding the Mango application. Looking forward to it :-)

I must say I'm really really happy about the Mango grant.

I've had any number of people ask me about a "shopping cart" in Perl over the years, and I've never had anything good to recommend.

With Catalyst as the "Web MVC + CPAN" solution, that can integrate with all sorts of things, and Handel as a proper abstraction for the business logic, I've been really looking forward to combining the two together to produce a really nice extendable eCommerce solution.

Bravo

I'm extremely happy with the Mango project, and I totally approve this grant.

Though a good free, Perl-based web commerce application already exists (Interchange)
http://www.icdevgroup.org/

something based on Catalyst, DBIx::Class and Handel, can ultimately prove to be more flexible.

Furthermore, the more Perl applications we have the better it is to publicize Perl, being the web commerce such an important market field.

Cheers,
Emanuele Zeppieri.
