HTML::Mason is a full-featured web site development and delivery system. Mason allows web pages and sites to be constructed from shared, reusable building blocks called components. Components contain a mix of Perl and HTML, and can call each other and pass values back and forth like subroutines. Components increase modularity and eliminate repetitive work. HTML::Mason is most powerful when used in conjunction with mod_perl, but can be used in standalone applications as well.
Perl XSQL is a simple creator of XML data from DBI datasources. It allows you to easily extract data from a database, and manipulate it later using XML::Parser or in association with a XSL template file to a XSLT parser like Sablotron or GNOME libxml. This allows you to create dynamic Web applications by simply setting your SQL queries into a XML file and generating the HTML output using a XSL template. It acts exactly like the Oracle XSQL servlet.
The HTML::Defaultify Perl module is designed to allow CGI programmers to present forms with some fields filled in, which is handy for letting users correct bad input, show records to be edited, and much more. The main function, defaultify(), takes any block of HTML and a hash of field names and values, and returns the HTML with the form fields set to those values. Value lists for multiple same-named fields are supported, as are pages with multiple forms. Several different input formats are supported for compatibility with existing tools.
The Perl Oak Component Tree is a set of objects designed to provide the maximum reusability to software development. Oak can be used in any development platform, but just the Web platform is implemented. In Oak, you define an XML file to each page and you will implement just the events.
CGI::Application::Generator provides a means by which a CGI::Application-based module can be created from code, as opposed to being written by hand. This module is intended to create the shell of an application module, based on the specification you provide. It will not output a completely functional application without additional coding. It will, however, create the structural parts of your application common to all CGI::Application-based modules. This module is intended to ease the creation of new CGI::Application modules and to encourage standardization of CGI::Application coding styles.
rackview is a tool for visualizing the layout of rack- mounted equipment. It can load data either from database tables or a flat file. It can be used to assist in planning and tracking hardware changes to racks in a data center, and to provide a host-oriented interface into other database tools. The core of rackview is implemented as a Perl module, which can be integrated into a variety of different tools. Sample command line and CGI scripts are included, which should be sufficient for basic needs.
