My first module release in I don't know how long has hit the streets. Run for cover
CGI::Application::Plugin::HTDot enables magic-dot support for HTML::Template in CGI::Application based applications. For those of you like me who need some of the power of Template Toolkit but can't afford a migration to AnyTemplate or Template Toolkit can become immediately more productive with no change of code! Just need to add the plugin to your base application's definition:
use base("CGI::Application::Plugin::HTDot", "CGI::Application");
# rest of your module goes here. . .
Apparently I'm already getting some good press here and here. Coincidentally, those are the two people who made the invention of this plugin possible. Rhesa and Mark did some awesome work to enable the dot in HTML::Template. Which reminds me I need to do something awesome for Rhesa - we were completely feeding off of each other's energy there for a few days
HTML::Template users should really check out the dot. It's awesome
