libcgi-formbuilder-perl: Easily generate and process stateful CGI forms

Distribution Debian unstable
Abteilung perl
Quelle libcgi-formbuilder-perl
Version 3.05.01-7
Maintainer Debian Perl Group <>
Beschreibung Do you hate generating, processing, and validating CGI forms?
Do you love Perl?
FormBuilder is the answer. It's an extremely fast, robust Perl module
with a ridiculous set of features.
Here's the main stuff that I [the author] think is cool:
* DWIMmery
This module tries to "Do What I Mean". Tell it the fields you care
about, and it takes care of all the stupid HTML and JavaScript
generation and processing for you. It also gives you back the correct
values that you want. It will even label your fields automatically with
human-readable names.
* Input field abstraction
You simply define your fields and their options, and FormBuilder will
take care of figuring out what the best HTML representation is. It will
then generate the appropriate input fields (text, select, radio, etc),
even changing any JavaScript actions appropriately.
* Easy handling of defaults
Just specify a hash of values to use as the defaults for your fields.
This will be searched case-insensitively and displayed in the form.
What's more, if the user enters something via the CGI that overrides a
default, when you use the field() method to get the data you'll get the
correct value.
* Correct stickiness
Stickiness is a PITA. FormBuilder correctly handles even multiple
values selected in a multiple select list, completely integrated with
proper handling of defaults.
* Robust field validation
Form validation sucks, and this is where FormBuilder is a big help. It
has tons of builtin patterns, and will even generate gobs of JavaScript
validation code for you. You can specify your own regexps as well, and
FormBuilder will even check multivalued select lists correctly. See the
full list of built-in patterns.
* Multiple submit mode support
FormBuilder allows you to reliably tell whether the person clicked on
the "Update" or "Delete" button of your form, normally a big pain.
* Template driver support
FormBuilder can natively "drive" several major templating engines:
* HTML::Template
* CGI::FastTemplate
* Text::Template
* Template Toolkit
If you want to build a complete form application with a template in
less that 20 lines of Perl, FormBuilder is for you.
* Internationalized, Customizable Messaging
Sick of US-centric modules? You can customize every single message that
FormBuilder outputs for your locale. See the full messages list.
* Simple Interface
Heck, I specialized in User Interface Design for my degree!
* Extensive Documentation
