Notes from a Newbie 11: View Blogs

Notes from a Newbie document the creation and deployment of yardbirdfanclub.org with Perl Catalyst on shared hosting. They are intended for a Perl Catalyst Newbie who would like to study the creation and deployment of a simple Perl Catalyst application.

We experimented then started over and now have a decent looking application with authentication/authorization features:

  • Create new member
  • Login member
  • Logout member

We also have other things going, such as a complete database with all tables and columns needed to record membership and create and use blog entries and comments. We know the difference between DBIC Row, Result and ResultSets, and how to use them to store and retrieve data. We've used both an HTML::FormHandler form and one we rolled ourselves. We have header and footer templates to minimize code duplication while providing an attractive, consistent look to our pages. We have a good start on a css stylesheet, with a few basic styles we've been using in our templates.

In our experiments we figured out how to display and link to blog titles and content, with little concern for their appearance on a page. We now readdress the issue of displaying them, with a few new styles, search and sort routines for improvements.

Notes from a Newbie 10: Authentication/Authorization

Notes from a Newbie document the creation and deployment of yardbirdfanclub.org with Perl Catalyst on shared hosting. They are intended for a Perl Catalyst Newbie who would like to study the creation and deployment of a simple Perl Catalyst application.

Now that we've experimented a little and are confident in what we're doing, we'll start over from scratch, beginning with authentication and authorization as explained in the Catalyst tutorials.
