Get your Mojo on

Posted at — Aug 29, 2011

This is just a quick post because I cannot contain myself. For the last few weeks I’ve been hacking on tornadoweb and while I like it there is plenty of room for improvement. Minutes ago I watched a slide presentation showing off several micro web frameworks implemented in python. Shortly after that I watched a mojocast.In a job interview with Riak’s Justin Sheehy I was asked about warts in python. My single complaint is the indenting. perl has none of that and it’s simply not as write-once as people suggest!That’s when I happened up mojolicious. I have been following catalyst for a number of years but I’ve come to hate the amount of dependencies and that sometimes they will not install. Anyway, I’m anxious to try mojo out and see what goodness it brings.If you think about it… python seems to be in chaos. You can expect to see versions 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and 3.x as the latest version/package depending on the¬†distribution¬†you are using. While perl seems more static than that.
