Frameworks are a pain, mostly because they end up needing hooks to be implemented. Hooks suck for more reasons that just it not being obvious what hooks should even be provided.

Libraries are a much better form of abstraction. Implement your functionality in properly abstracted subroutines with clear names that are easy to test. Then, if a user just wants the default behavior, they can just call the top-level subroutine and be done. If they want to customize parts, then they instead copy the structure of the top-level subroutine but add in their custom code where they need to. The top level subroutine should just be calls to other subroutines.

If you can easily test your subroutines and can give them clear names, then you've abstracted things well which means that the places where customization will be wanted are very likely to be "between" those subroutine calls.

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.
