Linden, this seems like awesome work, way to go!
However, along with Damien, I should note that we appreciate not putting
modules under Dancer that aren't part of Dancer itself. We recommend the
Also, we prefer people wouldn't use generic names. By calling it "Forms" it
gives an official sound and people might expect this to be the official and
only Dancer forms library. There are definitely more ways (though perhaps
not necessarily as good) to have forms - FormFu, for instance. For example,
if you call yours Dancer::Plugin::Djangoish or
Dancer::Plugin::Forms::Django (just an example), someone else could provide
a FormFu forms plugin under Dancer::Plugin::FormFu or
At least consider renaming to the ::Plugin namespace.
And thanks for this great contribution. I'll be sure to check the code and
perhaps even use it myself.
Good work! :)
