in reply to Maypole or PageKit?

Catalyst is much more advanced down the development path than Maypole, but personally, I prefer CGI::Appplication because it's easier to learn, but the sheer volume of plugins being added in the last few months gives you a level of functionality on a par with Catalyst.

Catalyst has a steep learning curve IMHO, which is not helped by the documentation which seems a bit unstructured to me, but which obviously is sufficient for all those Catalyst programmers out there ... so I guess that it's personal taste.

A comparison between CGI::Application and Catalyst can be found here

    The documentation is no more that unstructured since we started the wiki.
    Most entertaining fact about the recent flood of CGI::App plugins is that they all mimic Catalyst features. ;)

    CGI::App has one big advantage over Catalyst, and thats it's minimalism, which makes it perform better on non persistent environments like CGI.
    But we have a new subproject called CGI::Catalyst for this special purpose. ;)
