What sort of tools does Berk have in mind? Perl scripts, for instance. A tiny technical team armed with Perl scripts and an Oracle database ran the first sites he worked on back in the mid-1990s. Berk recalls his fascination as he saw larger and larger teams implementing more and more complex platforms in the late 1990s and early 2000s to achieve essentially the same result.Sounds about right.
I have a screenshot if you missed it live:
mt-rssfeed v1.0, is a MovableType plugin that provides a series of tags for retrieving an RSS feed and inserting it into a MovableType template.A nice MovableType plugin that I don't have a use for yet.
ewok is a web content management system (CMS), written in Perl (Embperl)...Would have been real handy back in the dayn at Merilus.

I've written a very simple Wiki clone using AxKit XSP. There's a live Wiki on http://axkit.org/wiki/ that you can play with (and we'll be putting the AxKit docs up on there). The source code is on CPAN (just uploaded this morning, so you may have to wait for it to mirror). I think the code is a pretty nice example of an MVC-like design in XSP, with the XSP as the Controller, the XSLT as the View, and a perl module as the Model.
It was the dawning of the second age of parrotkind, ten weeks after the great GC war. The Parrot Project was a dream given form. Its goal: To prevent language wars by creating an interpreter where perl and other languages could reside peacefully... It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the latest of the Parrot releases. The year is 2002. The name of the tarfile is Parrot 0.0.5.For all of the Babylon 5 and Perl crowd out there.
SVG and perl are a perfect fit for the generation of dynamic content-rich images. Perl-based SVG webservices with the SVG.pm module emable truly scalable, cross-platform, database-enabled client-server applications with low total cost of ownership

It is by Perl alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the regex of Larry that the code acquires flexibility, the flexibility enables obscurity, the obscurity generates a warning. It is by Perl alone I set my mind in motion.Calle Dybedahl, in the Scary Devil Monastery

This document is a guide to the ins and outs of using AxKitAnd incase you were wondering what is AxKit here is a blurg from the site:
Apache AxKit is an XML Application Server for Apache. It provides on-the-fly conversion from XML to any format, such as HTML, WAP or text using either W3C standard techniques, or flexible custom code. AxKit also uses a built-in Perl interpreter to provide some amazingly powerful techniques for XML transformation.
Apache::MiniWiki is an increadibly simplistic Wiki server for Apache. It doesn't have much uses besides very simple installations where hardly any features are needed. What is does support though is; storage of Wiki pages in RCS, templates through HTML::Template, text to HTML conversion with HTML::FromText and basic authentification password changes.And if you want to check out someone experimenting with it, wonder over to nyetwork.org/wiki.
This module is a port and enhancement of the AxKit presentation tool, AxPoint. It takes an XML description of a slideshow, and generates a PDF. The resulting presentations are very nice to look at, possibly rivalling PowerPoint, and almost certainly better than most other freeware presentation tools on Unix/Linux. The presentations support slide transitions, PDF bookmarks, bullet points, source code (fixed font) sections, images, colours, bold and italics, hyperlinks, and transition effects for all the bullet points, source, and image sections.And some examples.
Don't know about you guys, but this astounds me. A volunteer-run, user donation-supported organization funding volunteers for a free software project.Which reminds me I should be sending both a donation.
Puts the corporate world to shame.
With Chronicler it's simple to create, update and maintain your own archive of web pages such as a personal diary or journal, or even a daily magazine.Looks to be a nice simple CGI storing XML in the filesystem.
