This is the online home of WebDAO - platform for developing web applications written in perl.

There are many environments in which the web applications work:

    | FastCGI                       CGI         |

    |     nginx |                      |        |
    |           |     Your code        | isapi  |
    |           |                      |        |
    |            ----------------------         |
    |  Shell            Test::More      IIS     |

From author

WebDAO is not a commercial, but there is a positive experience with its use in the composition of the commercial product. I am developing WebDAO in their spare time, so it has developed and documented not as fast as expected.
