    I lamented the same thing [] four years ago and things don't seem to have changed too much. My theory is that there just isn't a huge advantage over just using plain Cocoa/Objective-C for it to be worth the hassle. Unless you need something specifically tied to perl, you can put something together in Cocoa just as easily. However it will be interesting to see if the new BridgeSupport [] stuff will change anything.

    I have been slowly attempting to put together a CPANPLUS frontend with CamelBones recently, after a long absence. I had forgotten how simple it is to get a basic GUI working, but then how much time you can spend just mucking around with the various GUI options.

    • I still find the Obj-C syntax objectionable. It just doesn't quite feel right, but yes I get your point about it being very easy to put something together using it.

      The way I see it, is CamelBones makes an awesome prototyping system that you could later port stuff over to Obj-C.

      But this app was so simple to build - I could create a competitor to Disco in just a couple of weeks.
