Hi all,
@Goke Aruna: I wonder if Dancer is really what you want to be using at the


Maybe this is a good occasion to ask the dancer developers where they want
to be going with this exciting initiative.

I have been using Drupal for the last two years which I perceive in as being
similar  to Dancer in some respects : It is easy to start from the beginning
and then you are pretty much free where you want to go. Less limitations,
for example, as with Wordpress. With WP you may get a blog setup much
quicker, but then it is more difficult to expand into un-blog-like regions.

Similar, Dancer let's you begin without understanding the whole technology
stack. Very quick and perlish in the sense that it helps you get simple
things done easily and difficult task with moderate effort, but later
everything is still open.

Anyways, when I  the examples from Dancer::Cookbook from beginning to end I
have the feeling that writing a more or less complex website with many pages
and a lot of programmed functionality is a central issue of Dancer. That
does compare to Drupal quite well.

I have the feeling this is not the core idea of webapps. I might be wrong
here or maybe old fashioned. I think if webapps as relatively small
solutions to specific problems. Like a online payment solution inbeeded in a
bigger site.

Anyway, I am curious to hear your opinions.
