Hmm, if that's so, why has no-one mentioned Catalyst, or Jifty yet?

    Maybe people aren't mentioning Catalyst much because:

    1. It suffers from CPAN Dependency Hell.
    2. It's not portable or accessible for people with <$10/mo. webhosting accounts.

      Try the Shadowcat installer. I used to curse and swear at Cat during installation; ever since Matt posted that thing to the list, installations have been blissfully simple: fire curl -s http://www.shadowcatsystems.co.uk/static/cat-install | sudo perl and forget. 10 minutes later you have a working Cat install.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        That solves one of the two problems. The other is still enough to make Catalyst unuseful for most of its potential userbase.

        That doesn't mean it's not excellent for those who can use it, of course — just that there are a great many people who cannot use it.
