  • Yeah, Continuity::Widget is just a sketch, and separate from Continuity itself on purpose. Even if I get that going the way I like, I definitely don't expect it to be The Way to use Continuity. More like a demonstration of what can be done. Well... and for my own use :)

    I unfortunately don't know the full HTML::Mason request cycle and how that all works. One thing you can do, I believe, is to just use Mason as a template engine. You could then use Mason components to organize your views, and outter Continu

  • use Mason's templating parts, not its web framework parts, like you would with Catalyst or Jifty. see the source of Catalyst::View::Mason, and the "using Mason in standalone scripts" part of HTML::Mason::Admin.
    • (I'll be damned if I can get the code to format within <code> tags, so this is all Code format.)

      I actually tried installing Jifty last night because I realized it might be more what I had in mind (continuations, Mason...), but I aborted the install after about a half hour of exciting CPAN action. (Maybe I should try Catalyst I guess, but it's never really felt right to me..)

      Then I ended up doing just what you mentioned, using Mason as a standalone script. It wasn't very elegant, though. Unfortunately
      • Yeah. In larger apps I usually end up putting $request into an instance variable so that I don't have to pass it around all the time. You can do the same thing with your Mason interpreter, I imagine your main body might look like:

        sub main {
            my $request = shift;
            my $app = App->new(request => $request);
            $app->run;
        }

        package App.pm;
        # ...

        sub run {
            my $self = shift;
            $self->display('/one.html');
            my $num1 = $self->param('num
