What a difference a week can make. . .

[ #13583 ]

Well, 9 days or so perhaps, but close enough to a week.

About a week or so ago I knew about templating systems, but I didn't really know about them. They have always been useful to me for creating pages that have a custom look from client to client, but run off the same code. Prior to this though, I was the designer and the coder. So if I cheated and generated some HTML in Perl it was no big deal.

For the two projects I did this week I quit using CGI.pm for HTML generation cold turkey, and instead pushed it all off on my friend the web designer. And I've never been happier :) I suck at web design, and wanting to make a statement with these projects thought that I should leave web design to those that excel at it. So I gave her a simple page with the tags I needed in it and let her go to town on the sites, never having to worry about what they looked like. And when I got those templates back on Friday, everything worked like magic.

Did I mention that I love HTML::Template? :)
