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 | 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.

        Very late to the game but when this thread was written I was using Catalyst on $7/month hosting. Still am. Any host that supports fcgi and Perl will run Cat apps fine.
