note to self.. if puzzled why changes to a function/sub/method seem to have no effect make sure you don't have *any* warnings disabled, but especially the redefined sub one.. otherwise you'll never spot the accidentally pasted duplicate of the sub you want to change

I don't think it is.

I want something built on a good MVC foundation using best-of-breed tools like DBIx::Class and Template Toolkit.

I've come to the conclusion that as I have neither the time nor inclination to spend my spare time working on Maypole, and I haven't used it for any paid work for several years, I won't be investing any more time on actively working on it.

However, I could be persuaded to work on it for a decent fee, and I would be happy to apply any patches applied and release new versions with fixes.

I'd also be happy to hand over the reins to anybody who wants to take over.

.. that I blogged previously

Maybe it's just me, but I find GUI Designers cumbersome, much nicer to play around with demos and samples - no boiler plate, learn about the API instead of leaving a trail of boilerplate and cargo-culted code.

I first released Autodia back in late 2000, it's a fairly small project, doing a specific and small job of interest to some programmers.

I remember how pleased I was the first time somebody emailed me about it, saying thanks and how useful it was. It was a huge surprise and I was really chuffed, that somebody the other side of the world (I think it was South America), had found it and thought to contact me.

  Journal: Adding a new submenu and core feature to padre in an evening on 2009.08.24 4:04

Journal by TeeJay on 2009.08.24 4:04
User Journal

Last night I decided I'd spend a few hours adding something like gedits 'insert date' and any office program's Insert stuff menu.

Previously I'd spent about 25 minutes looking at how the snippets feature worked and how it fitted into menu's dialogs, etc - just enough time to copy it and modify the menus

Adding a new submenu is fairly simple

perversely I can get to my new employer's office in Halifax, Yorkshire for 9am from my home near Truro, but not anywhere in central london...although it does mean getting out of bed at 5am.

My only quibble would be that you probably want a bigger search box closer to the middle as seen on google and search.cpan.

The documentation page *is* wide enough, even on a 1600x1050 widescreen (there is a reason newspapers have columns).

All in all, pretty happy with it.

Have you tested that? .. as it still seems to apply the privilege tests to the user that defined the trigger, rather than the user invoking it.
