Just like Coro, bad author, great code.
Author is not very nice, but the module is great.
Not as good as Ruby on Rails, but has its charm.
Ruby guy here trying out Perl, this framework is total garbage compared to Sinatra.
Why would you even mention it as the main inspiration when you're just ignoring all the good parts anyway?
If this is the best Perl has to offer... well, then you're surely a dead language.
