Embperl is a framework for building websites with Perl.
For the beginner it's any easy to setup and use way of embedding
Perl code in HTML pages.
It delivers several features that ease the task of creating a websites,
including dynamic tables, formfield-processing, escaping/unescaping,
session handling, caching and more.
If your demands grows it gives you the power
to make your Web site object-oriented and build it out of small reusable
components. If you don't like the idea of mixing up all your layout and code
Embperl supports separating it in different objects (e.g. createing an
MVC application). Of course Embperl doesn't ties you to HTML, it allows
components to be from different source formats (e.g. HTML, WML, XML, POD, ...)
and if necessary transforms it (for example via XSLT) to other output formats.
This is achieved by diving the output generation in small steps, where each
is processed by a plugable provider.
Advanced user can create their own syntax definitions (for example tag libraries)
and extent Embperl by writing their own providers and much more
IMPORTANT: This document describes the syntax and several features of Embperl.
Please read also perldoc Config.pod, which describes how to
configure Embperl and how to access the different Embperl objects and
their data. Also take a look at perldoc Embperl::Object
to learn how to use Embperl page as objects.
Additionally there are a few introductions documents should consider to read:
Intro.pod, IntroEmbperl2.pod and IntroEmbperlObject.pod.
