Web.pm is an incubator for several related but independent web application projects. It's united by one central goal: to bring web application crafting, just like the rest of Perl 6, up-to-date with current practices that have proven to work in other languages. At the center of this group of projects sits the Web.pm core, a set of modules that abstract over common tasks related to HTTP requests and responses. Here are some other modules currently under the roof of Web.pm: Astaire A Perl 6 port of Ruby's Sinatra. Think of it as abstracting away the upper parts of the web stack; the part above Web.pm core. With Astaire you can write a "hello world"-type web application in a few lines of Perl 6. Squerl A nice implementation-independent SQL interface. Working with 'datasets' as its fundamental abstraction, Squerl allows you to construct and manipulate queries in a flexible way. Not really an ORM layer, it's more of an abstraction of SQL specifics and platform differences. Ratel A no-frills templating module. Write your HTML (or whatever), and inline Perl 6 code between a '[%' and a '%]'. Ratel will turn your template into executable Perl 6, which can then be used to generate the HTML. Hitomi A bells-and-whistles templating module. Where Ratel is fast-and-loose, Hitomi aims for strictness and scalability. A modular system based on XML SAX streams, it allows for combining (X)HTML and Perl 6 code in the same template.
