HTML Mason

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation,

HTML::Mason is a web site development and delivery system that constructs web pages and sites 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. They 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.
