( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm using the HTML::Template in my project. The examples given in the tutorials are pretty simple - one or two tables. However, if you take a normal website, it contains 2-3 menus, a few link boxes, page content, header, footer and other things. So, there is a need to break the homepage into small templates. Here we go: I have ~ 30-50 templates in my project. I'd liked to hear from othe perl monks how they deal with such situation, because I believe most of the websites are pretty complicated.

I use HTML::Template together with DBIx::Recordset at my work. As I have already noted I have ~ 30-50 templates for different entry forms and website components such like button groups. I use template includes and loops, trying to make them as abstract as possible.

I'd liked to hear if anyone is writing such modules like that loads its entries from the database and knows how to display its items using the templates. There are many components which I needed for my website and had to write myself. I believe there must be frameworks like that around, but I don't know any.

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.
