Maypole was one of the first web application frameworks for the Perl programming language that was based on the MVC pattern. It was designed to minimize coding requirements for creating simple web interfaces to databases, while remaining flexible enough to support enterprise web applications. The principal author is Simon Cozens.[1]

Maypole provides the top-level code which examines the user's request, fires off the relevant method in the model, collates the data, asks the view class to format it and sends it back to the user.

In addition, some common Perl modules, such as Apache, Class::DBI and Template Toolkit, already perform important parts required for model, view or controller operation, so Maypole provides wrapper classes to help them fit into the framework.

Development has ceased on Maypole, and its most recent release was in April 2008.[2] Catalyst, which started as a fork of Maypole,[3] is its modern supported equivalent.
