Perl::Critic::Policy::Community::ModPerl - Don't use mod_perl to write web applications
mod_perl is an embedded Perl interpreter for the Apache web server. It allows you to dynamically configure and mod Apache. It is not a generally good solution for writing web applications. Frameworks using Plack (Web::Simple, Dancer2, Catalyst) and Mojolicious are much more flexible, powerful, and stable. A web application written in one of these frameworks can be deployed using a Perl HTTP server such as Starman or Mojo::Server::Hypnotoad; by proxy from Apache or nginx; or even run as if they were regular CGI scripts.
This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Community.
This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
