I recently went through this myself. I read a nice HTML::Widget example (Catalyst Tutorial) that I used to jump-start the project, but I found out HTML::Widget is no longer being developed. HTML::FormFu is the replacement that seems to be undergoing rapid development.

Since FormFu was so new I tried out CGI::Formbuilder with Catalyst. I had successfully used it before with CGI::App. It has YAML configuration, easy validation both server side and javascript.

I then found a nice article on FormFu in the advent Catalyst calendar, and decided to test it out since it seems to have a lot of momentum. My simple test worked well. One thing FormFu has going for it is the ability to work with database relationship when processing data. I don't have first hand experience with that aspect, but it looks promising to put together form components from multiple related tables.

My experience with Data::FormValidator has been good. A bit of a learning curve to assembling the profile, but powerful enough to handle arbitrary validations.

In summary, if I had to choose one I'd go w/ FormFu if I were more cutting edge and CGI::Formbuilder for the more conservative.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
