in reply to Catalyst : Observations After Week 1

Great review! ++

The Cat gang embrace TIMTOWTDI to an extreme. TIMTOWTDI is great, but for newcomers, some recommended practices / examples would be helpful, esp. on the topic of structuring an app (directories and actions) and M-V-C design strategy.

I wholeheartedly agree. When I first started playing with Ruby on Rails, I immediately started to see some (much, even) wisdom behind their "convention over configuration" approach. Essentially, it's like building best practices right into the framework. You can do something differently if you want, but it's not usually in your best interest to do so. Then again, Rails is in some ways less flexible than I'd like, particularly when you have to work with an existing database. So, I don't think either framework has really hit the sweet spot on that issue. Making Rails more flexible may be harder than adding convention to Catalyst though, so that's probably a win for Cat.
