[Chicago-talk] Dreamweaver perl and mysql

It is possible to do this with Perl. I don't think Alan was saying otherwise. Catalyst is just one way to try to ease development and maintenance of web application. Mojolicious is another (and the one I use, because it seems to be simpler to write small things with). Dancer is another, and in my opinion, more comparable to Mojolicious.

To connect to MySQL in all of these cases, or any other case you might try, you'll use the DBI module, which interfaces with most SQL databases. Any Perl you write can use DBI.

Wow just took a look at catalyst. Seems easier to just stick with Dreamweaver and access my MySQL tables with php -- if you are saying I can't do so with perl.

You'll need to learn enough HTML to transform your Dreamweaver output files into templates. There are many ways to do this but you probably want a framework like Mojolicious or Catalyst.  I see that the Catalyst tutorial includes the kind of website you want to build (as "CRUD"):


I'm also sure you could do this using Mojolicious.  But, again, you're SOL unless you're willing to learn how to work with these technologies.

I do not know HTML. I have created a website with dreamweaver that mostly just looks pretty and and jumps to different pages on a site. I have also written a database app with perl->MySQL that users on a small LAN can use to enter and query data. However, it is displayed on linux consoles using rudimentary menu apps based on curses. I would like to create a website that would allow users to enter and query data from MySQL databases and carry out functions such as updating users via email when changes are made. Since I don't know HTML or Apache can I just use dreamweaver and somehow enter perl code to talk to MySQL? Or is there a better and easier way for me to go about this?
Thanks for any ideas.
