Milwaukee.pm 2015 Talk

 April 16, 2015

Live/stream presentation "Fun with RapidApp" given for the Milwaukee Perl Mongers group on April 16th, 2015

This talk focused on some of the automatically generated, out-of-the-box interfaces that RapidApp is able to provide for various kinds database backends. This was covered using live demos of full apps, embedded interfaces, and command-line utilities.

Some of the topics covered included:

  • Embedded Table Grids, Trees and Property Grids
  • Encapsulated Ajax designs
  • Tabbed/RESTful navigation paradigms
  • Plack/PSGI, Catalyst and command-line usage
  • Integration with existing apps

The slideshow itself was a live PSGI application, bundled with all the examples shown, which can be accessed on GitHub (see link below). The README in the repo includes commands needed to clone and run the app (also shown below).
