At the end of November I think I'll start having a little time to play with my
pet projects. With the future nothing is certain, but I'm free to plan, am I
not? I'd like to get to know Catalyst, Template::Toolkit and DBIx::Class.
Some people seem to think that it's fun :-)
My usual way of learning new modules is to apply them to something useful.
In that light, I thought about rewriting Freemoney, which is an old idea of
mine. At the time (in the dark ages, around year 2000), I tried different
approaches, but came to the conclusion that the tools weren't there yet.
The plan is to refactor Freemoney completely
- Rework the database layout
- Redesign the end goal
and implement it in
- DBIx::Class (PostgreSQL)
- Catalyst w/Template::Toolkit, Ajax and all
- Propably use Business::Bof, as model. Btw. Can I have more models for one
application with Catalyst?
Now I imagine that some (many?) of you are self employed, using all kinds of
programs to keep track of customers, orders and accounting. I hope for some
feedback to help design the end user functionality, as specific as possible.
If nobody is interested, I think that I will use alternative A. Sit at the
pool and sip cold drinks all day. Hmm, sounds more attractive...
