Matchstick Project Created

[ #21989 ]
I've created a new project on SourceForge called Matchstick. From the project description:

The goal of Matchstick is to create a framework for the development of high-quality large-scale Apache/mod_perl applications. Projects which use Matchstick will be easier to administrate, from installation to configuration to upgrade.

A more elaborate project description was posted on the Krang mailing-list, back before Perrin Harkins came up with a better name:

The short version is that Matchstick aims to take everything from Krang that isn't specific to creating a content-management system and repackage it for reuse. That means build, installation, upgrade, startup, shutdown, documentation, testing, etc.

Take a look and come join the project mailing-list if you'd like to get involved:

  • This is good news for maypole and others, at the moment maypole is mostly compared to struts and ruby-on-rails rather than any perl framework.

    Hopefully ideas should cross-polinate, and allow developers to pick the framework that works best with their project and development methods.

    Sebastian Riedel is working on Catalyst, which is close relative to Maypole 2 but is diverging in direction aiming at outdoing the j2ee and ruby MVC frameworks.


    @JAPH = qw(Hacker Perl Another Just);
    print reverse @JAPH;
    • It could be that this could be useful for Maypole, assuming Maypole-based dev environments aren't already easy to build, install, upgrade and control. Core matchstick (probably) won't have any of the stuff that Maypole provides, although an add-on with CGI::Application and HTML::Template baked-in is definitely planned. I'm sure there's room for a Maypole add-on too.
