The Perl Foundation is proud to announce the latest grant aimed at furthering development in Perl, Simon Cozens will receive $1000 to enhance Maypole.
Maypole is a new Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework for web applications, similar to Java's Struts, but designed for minimal coding and maximal flexibility. Many Perl programmers would save many hours when faced with developing ye t another web front-end to a database without requiring much code. A Perl equivalent of the popular Struts framework w ould fit the needs of more heavy-duty users. This grant will involve work with existing Maypole users to determine and meet their needs; to develop view and template classes for HTML::Mason and DBIx::SearchBuilder; completion of the May pole manual, and development of example sites.
