  • I teach a Perl course about once a year for folks in my organization, and one question the students always ask is, "I need a quick and simple web interface to this database we have, what should I use?" And there was no answer.

    Gantry has been able to do this for a while now:

    A Holiday Gantry Web Application []


    • Yes there are a few other equivalent systems, as I mentioned in the article (the Rose Garden one, in particular, I was familiar with). I must confess to being unaware of Gantry.

      What's interesting, and this is just typical of the Perl community's way of doing things, is that one module inspires use of another.

      For example people want a CRUD-ish system like this, but are put off by the size and power of the Rose Garden, or Gantry. then they install my LFB, and are happy for a while. Then they want to customize it in some way which isn't supported, so they migrate off to these other systems such as your own.

      This is a good way of doing things - one small tool which does one thing well, and larger systems which fulfill other needs, but no less well. I've already had people get this far with LFB and been pointing them at these alternatives.

      thanks for the feedback,
