in thread What's the best Perl CMS?

I had come across that one. Looking closer it does seems pretty good, and matches my spec.

I've also come across WebGUI which looks good but I'm put off by the design of their site. The overall design is ok.. I suppose, but that text under the logo "Web Done Right".. considering it's a struggle to actually read that text I wouldn't particularly say that's done right. Hard to read text such as white on light background is one of my pet peeves.

I'm considering fashioning my own using Wiki::Toolkit and an JavaScript WYSIWYG HTML editor although I don't like the through of the maintenance. I've got more than enough coding work to do at the moment!

    As far as WYSIWYG JavaScript HTML editors, you might take a look at TinyMCE as well. It's used by many CMS packages as an option or as the default visual page editor. That includes Mambo, Joomla, Drupal, and the venerable Citadel.

    I've recently updated the TinyMCE plugin for Lucid to use TinyMCE 3.0.6, and I should be getting that posted to the repository Real Soon Now (once I have some more testing and feedback).

    Besides being fairly easy to make into a plugin for a CMS, it's pretty easy for a JavaScript programmer to write plugins for TinyMCE itself. I should know, because I'm not a great JavaScript guy and I've done a few. The plugin model was one of the changes between the 2.x branch and the 3.0 branch, so I've actually written and rewritten a few.

    The license for TinyMCE is LGPL, so if you're looking seriously at licenses that's good to know.

    ALl that said, HTMLArea I hear is pretty good, so don't let me dissuade you from it if it ends up being a better match for your needs.
