I am a big foodie

[ #33844 ]

well, I love to try out different kind of food. I even build a restaurant review website ( http://www.goodspot.ca/ ) that is dedicated to the local restaurants so that i can find the best one right from my fingertips. :)

the site was built using CGI::Application, Template-Toolkit as an excuse to learn more about writing perl webapp.

it has been 6 months since i last touched the codebase. now i finally got some time and urge to make it work better (at least for me :)

the first thing i want to do is to refactor the code to make it easy to extend. currently it is one big module (Main.pm) that uses other module and handle all front-end requests. it is hard to maintain and i can't put the whole thing into my head.

the next thing would be to improve the current functionalities and adding more features. I have been thinking of it and i find it to be harder than the coding :D

on a whim, how many of you run a site like this? would be interested to know your experience. I know Dave Rolsky runs the http://www.vegguide.org/

  • I was surprised to find it wasn't in Mason. : )
  • I'm in Ottawa and I'm going to pass your site onto my friends in the GTA, it's very slick.

    I was looking to build a similar site but for rating something other than restaurants. Are you interested in sharing the code/collaborating on your code?

    I have a few years experience working with CGI::Application and TT2.

    • thanks for your interest.

      as i mentioned earlier, the code is bit mess. the first thing i want to do is to put in a built system so that it is easier to install and start running.

      give me few week and i will provide you a link to the src tarball.
