NAME ^

Web::Gui - render cross platform gui applications in a web browser from perl

VERSION ^

version 0.63

this module is under active development, interfaces may change.

this code is currently in beta, use in production environments at your own risk

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Web::Gui;
    display P 'hello, world!';  # P is the HTML <p> tag

    use Web::Gui;
    display
        H3('Web Gui!'),
        (SPAN style => q{
                background-color: #222;
                outline: 2px solid #444;
                padding: 10px;
                margin:  10px;
            },
            (INPUT type => 'button',
                  value => 'click me',
                onclick => sub {print "hello\n"}
            ),
            (INPUT type => 'button',
                  value => 'function',
                onclick => function q{alert("world!")}
            ),
        );

DESCRIPTION ^

this module is a thin wrapper around XUL::Gui that disables the mozilla specific portions (all of the XUL tags, the filepicker, trusted mode features), but in turn allows you to create gui's in HTML + CSS that should run on most modern browsers.

See XUL::Gui for details.

Selected macros may be coming to simplify dealing with forms and tables, sub Button {INPUT type => 'button', @_}

CAVEATS ^

using this module is the same as:

    use XUL::Gui qw(... !:xul);

    display mozilla => 0, ...;

compatibility

internet explorer has limited support for some of the mechanisms used in XUL::Gui. some things won't work right or at all. event handlers work if you use _onclick instead of onclick (since ie doesn't support setting event handlers with setAttribute like every other browser...)

ymmv. patches welcome
