It's interesting that you mention this. At work we currently use CGIApp
and DBIC and I am working on a plugin to help integrate the two. Hopefully
I'll have a release soon. Currently it has the following methods:
- schema - to get to your models
- simple_search - searches the given model with all of params sent over
the wire with a like %foo% query (with some params blacklisted)
- search - does a specified preexisting search on your model (currently
->controller_search.) This probably needs some thought work
- paginate - duh
- sort - duh
- page_and_sort - both of the above in a single call
Anyway, the idea is to have it fully configurable, but with useful
defaults. It may help beginners in their quest for MVC. Do any people who
know more than me have any thoughts regarding the previous list?
