Keep It Simple, Stupid

( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've discovered Catalyst recently too, and I must say that it's amazing to speed up your Web app development.

I used to work with an inhouse MVC framework that enabled me to produce stable app quite fast.
I stopped using it now in favour of Catalyst.

  • First it's elegant ! it's a MVC Framework which fullfill all my needs in a simple way, while being easy to modify.
  • The helpers allow you to unleash your lazyness, producing a lot of code (I hardly can call it a skeleton, as it's rather a complete application in the case of Catalyst::Helper::Controller::Scaffold)
  • The included HTTP::Server is a big win for rapid prototyping/test (But using Catalyst on 'real' Web Server like Apache isn't a problem and is even the common practice)
  • You're not tied to any technology for model or view components
  • The Perl automated tests framework is used and promoted.
  • And best of all the community is very responsive and answer all your questions on the #catalyst channel.

You don't have to believe me, but if you have some time just give it a try...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
