Mason is a powerful Perl-based templating system for generating HTML or other dynamic content. It has powered thousands of web sites over the past 15 years, including Amazon.com and Salon.com.

Poet is a modern companion web framework for Mason. Integrated by some of the best website builders, it uses PSGI/Plack for server integration and a selection of best-of-breed CPAN modules for caching, logging and configuration. All of this gives best-in-breed technology to everyone, even those just learning how to make a website.

Mason can also be used as the templating layer for other Perl web frameworks like Catalyst and Dancer.
