  • I think the project is great, but I don't care for the name Web.pm. It seems too all-encompassing, but at the end of the name, it's probably not that big of a deal. On the other hand, you can check synonyms from thesaurus.com:

    cobweb, complexity, entanglement, fabric, fiber, filigree, gossamer, interconnection, interlacing, involvement, labyrinth, lacework, lattice, mat, matting, maze, mesh, meshwork, morass, net, network, plait, reticulation, screen, skein, snarl, tangle, texture, tissue, toil, trellis, warp, weave, webbing, weft, wicker, woof

    I kind of like Lattice.pm or Trellis.pm, though Gossamer.pm sounds nice, too :)

    • Thank you for your suggestions. Some people don't care for the name Web.pm, some do, it seems. It might or might not be a good idea to discuss the merits of the name in the comments of this blog post. :)

      I'll end here before I start to give reasons for liking Web.pm. I already did that in links from the post.

  • I just wanted to nod in agreement to the reasonable defaults stuff. I think that Rails, despite being inflexible compared to Catalyst or CGIApp has all those defaults that are great for beginners, so they can just get stuff done. At my job we are doing web apps and most of my design time is spent trying to abstract things so that we have defaults that work well.
