Perl Lite

This is my attempt at an oUF layout that looks Perl-like. I really like the "Perl" style of frames, with the separate name bar on the top, and the separate borders around each section. It's an artistic tradition going back to the original Perl addon in vanilla WoW, and then through Nymbia's Perl, X-Perl, and Perl Classic. I'm expanding this tradition to include a light-weight Perl layout that uses the popular oUF framework.

My first goal is to have the basic target, pet, & party frames, with their buffs & debuffs & highlighting, so the mod is usable. Raid frames aren't as important, because everyone who really cares just uses Grid or VuhDo. But I know they're important to many people, so after the basic features are stable, I'll do raid frames.

Stopped Work On This, For Now

X-Perl works well enough to use, and there are so many other things I need to fix, or make, or help with for the MoP launch. So I haven't had time to work on this for over a month, and won't for a while now.

Once MoP leveling settles down though, I'll get work started on this again. I really like X-Perl but am constantly afraid of it dying due to it being ancient and difficult to maintain. Perl Lite is my long-term security in always having a Perl-like UI!
