  • Heh. Sukria released Dancer at about the same time on the CPAN, and the two packages do roughly the same thing. Too bad they did not communicate on the matter a little bit earlier. The two projects look like really fun alternatives to ruby's Sinatra. :) http://search.cpan.org/~sukria/Dancer-0_0.99/lib/Dancer.pm [cpan.org]

    • Actually they did know about Dancer.

      After the Dancer release to github, vti wrote a dancer clone using Mojo. Eventually he re-wrote it using Mojolicious, and that was the spark that ignited Mojolicious::Lite development.

      • Hello, to be frank, reading this makes me sick.

        So it seems, they actually came on GitHub, found out Dancer, and just fork it? Whithout even taking five minutes to send me an email about that?

        Marketblogging about it then smells like arrongance to me, as they don't even take the time to quote the origin of their work.

        What is the purpose of such a behaviour? Splitting the Perl community in small groups that work one against the other?

        I really don't understand. I'm surprised to see how big some egos are

        • Uh, that's a little unfair. I've been using Mojo since November last year and it from the git log you only put Dancer on github a few weeks ago.

          Mojolicious::Lite is just a variant on the Mojolicious code to allow you to have apps in one file, like you have in Dancer. It's not a fork.

            This is a fork, please. Mojolicious was there long ago, I never said the opposite.
            But Mojolicious::Lite, it has been directly inspired by my work on Dancer. I don't blame the fork itself, afterall it's how things happen in free software.

            But would it be difficult to quote Dancer somewhere, just in order to give a bit of credit to my work?

            This is a fork, and an

        • OK, so as Sebastian has just said on Twitter that this is a "gloriously stupid comment", I'd like precise the full story so anybody who comes here can see he's altering the reality (as he previously did with Class::DBI [perl.org]).

          Mojolicious::Lite has been a rewrite of a module named "Rocker", previously written by Viacheslav Tykhanovskyi. Viacheslav told me he was inspired by Dancer and then started to write Rocker.

          Then Sebastian came and refactored Rocker into Mojolicious::Lite. Even if Sebastian is not aware of
