If you are a regular user of WebGUI 8, then you should spend some time in the new Admin Console to get a feel for how it works.  It’s always a good idea to learn how to use Template::Toolkit as it will save you time and give you more power and flexibility in your templating.

If you are a developer of WebGUI and want to work in 8, then I suggest the following list of modules:

  • Moose, concentrating on attributes, method modifiers and roles.
  • Plack, since we use Plack::Response and Plack::Request objects instead of the older way of interacting with modperl.
  • plackup, starman and starlet for replacing Apache & modperl.
  • nginx, so that you can migrate your configuration files from Apache.
