Pure Perl BLOG/CMS Roundupby mojotoad (Monsignor)
|on Sep 12, 2002 at 16:20 UTC||Need Help??|
mojotoad has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Lately I've been nosing around looking for a pure Perl CMS/BLOG. For my purposes, I'm really just interested in more of a framework for journalesque entries rather than a full blown news and commentary site.
On a more modest level, there's YaWPS (Yet another Web Publishing System) which seems okay though I haven't played with it to see how flexible its configuration is.
On a really basic level, I find Apache::BLOG, which basically prints one journal entry per page. Way too limited.
And of course there is rolling my own using HTML::Template or some equivalent, which is probably what I'll ultimately do since I never seem to be quite satisfied with canned solutions.
Some of the big boys, BTW, seem to be covered in the new Essential Blogging from O'Reilly; I'm not sure on what level it approaches the topic.
Thoughts, additions, reviews?
Thanks for your time,
