http://www.perl.org.il/ has a new look, courtesy of a template downloaded from OSWD.org and the wonderful HTML::Template module.
In addition, the site sources are under subversion, so that anyone can download and use them. Instructions are in the About page.
Recently someone posted in his Journal a rant about Perl websites:
I believe the new Israel.pm site shows that things can be different, even for "one man shows" sites. Israel.pm:
1. Is standards complient.
2. Nice looking, but not too flashy.
3. Is based on HTML::Template, so is easy to maintain.
4. Uses subversion to handle the site sources, so it is easy to send patches.
I agree that for large sites, such as perldoc.com, 1 or even just 2 people are not enough. But for the site of local Perl Mongers group, a perl based templating solution should be workable.
If you think differently, please comment below. Or send a patch
