( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Disclaimer: This is all just IMHO and personal experiences. Other solutions might be more suitable for other environments.

I have used HTML-Widget in the past, but I was always concerned with the fact that my controller defines the interface. I'm now using a self made controller base class doing configurable CRUD (not auto-detected). This is essentially it:

  • The form is organised and built with CGI-FormBuilder
  • The validation is done with Data-FormValidator
  • The controller base class reads its configuration as well as the fields from a YAML file that is loaded by the controller itself, since the YAML like source file for FB looks like YAML, but isn't really.
  • The controller also does the I18N
  • I don't use FB's native rendering facility, but walk the configured fields in a custom Template-Toolkit file that applies more general stylesheets, AJAX hooks, error and success messages.

PS: I use DBIx::Class exclusively these days, at least for non-legacy projects.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
