Frequently Asked Questions
Why another forms module?
None of the others met my needs. This is CPAN, people reinvent wheels properly so you don't have to.
Essentially the only real viable alternative I've come across is HTML::FormFu and I wanted a Pure-Perl solution, no YAML.
- Simple to use
Designed to be really simple, while still being flexible.
- Framework independent
It doesn't rely on Catalyst, Jifty, CGI::Application etc. Plug it into anything.
- Simple Plugin Architecture
It's really simple to write a new field plugin. So simple and quick, you'll want to define all your fields as plugins so they can be re-used.
- Promotes re-use
Define fields once and re-use them to compose different forms that will all enforce the same validation.
- Pure Perl (and pretty at that)
No YAML files, no other language to learn. Just simple Perl.
- Quality code
Why do you depend on Moose?
It made writing this module a lot quicker and the code a lot cleaner. And it will make maintenance a lot easier.
Will there be a non-Moose version?
No. Feel free to create and maintain a fork.
