hi to all.
"new fashioned" web development
this is my first post to this forum and i'm really, really new to perl as well.
i have quite a long story as a desktop / shell and web developer. my current day job involves writing sites with the .net framework, but my freelancing stuff and my pet projects are based on python / ruby / php.
i am really fascinated with perl, it has a long history and i'd really love to start digging into it. i want to use it for some small pet projects of mine.
despite the huge amount of documentation i was able to gather, i still could not find a comprehensive guide on how to write perl web applications in a "modern fashion". for example, how to set up .htaccess (and generally the server) to serve seo-friendly (http://mysiste.com/forum/showpost/how-to-use-perl) pages, how to model a simple orm, separating concerns with the use of templates and possibly mvc and so on...
mind, i'm quite in a "back to basics" mood, so i'm not looking for a framework (à la catalyst). indeed, web frameworks (web2py, ruby on rails, symphony, django, to name a few i've used) are what i'm running away from in the search for a more direct, shit-free approach to web development, only not so basic that i have to spit hundreds of "print <br />" lines to make my pages :D
ant thought / advice?
thanks in advance
