Exploring Perl web frameworks

A couple of years ago I started looking at options to deliver common “front end” functionality for sites using Bricolage, the content-management system that is used at New Internationalist Initially, what I had in mind to provide this front-end functionality was a “swarm” of micro-applications, where each little application provided one simple, specific, function, e.g., user registration, comments on content, voting and rating, sharing content, etc.…

The big "Explore Perl" button, where is it?

How can we make Perl more explorable? That's the question I've been wrestling with since my last post about Getting to the root of Perl's perception problems. (By the way, thanks for all of the feedback -- very helpful). As I continued to think through the different audiences that Perl needs to speak to and the challenge of helping them find the information they're looking for, I kept coming back to one idea: we need a Sherpa.…

Free software Fridays. Let's promote participation.

One of the most enjoyable benefits of working with a not-for-profit workers' co-operative is being able to invest some time into activities that aren't exclusively tied to generating revenue. New Internationalist has long-relied on free and open source software and this year we will try to formalize our efforts to contribute back to projects that have helped along the way. The concept is Free Software Fridays, which is something we hope will catch on at other organizations.…

The Perl ecosystem toolbar: Now it's your turn.

A couple weeks back, I asked the question Where is the big 'Explore Perl' button? and followed up last week with a short demo of the kind of thing I was thinking about. Some folks liked it: so today it's one step closer to reality. And now it's your turn to take it to the next level.…

The New Internationalist home page challenge

Most often when I’m designing a new site, I focus first on its content pages. Then, working from the inside-out, I finally arrive at the home page. This is the approach that I’ve taken in my work for New Internationalist.…

Bricolage daily activity summary.

By default Bricolage sends email notifications with root relative URLs/like/this. Some time ago the NI techs were chatting about how it'd benice to be able to click the URLs from the emails. This is a partialsolution to that.…

A Perl-based editor for Perl, on a Mac. 

Giving credit where credit is due: The folks behind Padre, the Perl IDE, are leading by example when it comes to doing community engagement well. Twice now, folks from the Padre project have dropped me a note to ask about this or that, which is a great way to catch people's attention So, with such great outreach, I'd feel like a complete schmoe if I didn't at least give Padre a whirl. Unfortunately, getting Padre running is currently pretty difficult -- I'd say a tad more difficult than…

Prettier Perl Web sites: Three arguments and three ideas

In doing a bit of background reading for this post, I stumbled on Sebastian Riedel's Perl Monk post from 2008 titled Prettier Perl websites. The discussion on that post is a fun read, as it highlights the polarization in the Perl community around Perl's (rather lousy) public image. This comment says it all: One thing I always liked to say about Perl-based services/sites, is that they, like Perl (and the Camel) are Ugly, but efficient.…
