in thread Installing Catalyst with CatInABox through FTP / CGI

I used to call it my apartment without "root" access to the title, etc. :)

CatInABox is a self-contained package with all the dependencies. I have no idea what its status is though or if it's being maintained.

For the OP: running Cat as CGI, while possible and possibly fast enough in small/limited applications, is not recommended.

    Catalyst::Manual::Installation says the following about CatInABox:
    Chris Laco's CatInABox

    CatInABox is a complete version of Catalyst that is installed locally on your system, so that you don't need to go through the effort of doing a full install. Simply download the tarball from and unpack it on your machine. Depending on your OS platform, either run start.bat or to set your bin/PERLLIB paths. This tarball contains everything needed to try out Catalyst including Catalyst itself, Template Toolkit, several Authentication modules, StackTrace, and a few other plugins.

    Unfortunately the link is dead.

    There is another link found here but downloads directory points to an svndump which I could not open or use.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      Install subversion create a repository: svnadmin create /path/to/repository (e.g. svnadmin create c:/catinabox) Load the subversion repository dump: svnadmin load /path/to/repository < /path/to/svndump (e.g. svnadmin load /path/to/repository < /path/to/svndump)
