Perl on Rails

Ruby on Rails

We’ve seen Ruby on Rails, and enjoyed it for a while.
But now, courtesy of BBC, we have also Pearl on Rails .

So we (the Audio and Music bit of Future Media and Technology – but more specifically Paul, Duncan, Michael and Jamie) embarked on building a Model-view-controller (MVC) framework in Perl.
For applications that run internally we use Ruby on Rail. Because we enjoy using it, its fast to develop with, straight forward to use and because we use it (i.e. to reduce knowledge transfer and training requirements) we decided to follow the same design patterns and coding conventions used in Rails when we built our MVC framew
ork. Yes that’s right we’ve built Perl on Rails.”
