Catalyst summary for 2005/04/17.

[ #24247 ]

Sundays might be meant for quiet reflection and church, but not in the exciting world of #catalyst :)

  • Chansen aka Christian starts off by writing a simple CDBI::Plain model for Jester, who inquires about that sort of thing. Jester promises to make a dist out of it later this week
  • Jester follows up by writing a success-story of his slashdotting of the science fiction dictionary in return. Lots of karma points for jester.
  • Chansen keeps showcasing his Sweet CDBI model. It's determined that it's probably not catalyst specific, and should be under the Class::DBI namespace, but we're unable to find a good name for it. Somehow Class::DBI::Sweet might be considered offensive. I volunteer to take the discussion to cdbi-talk once chansen has prepared a distro.
  • Matt S Trout comes by, and shows us his scary Catalyst construction - http://trout.me.uk/perl/bast-EXP. I'm not sure how to describe it, he claims it's "(eventually going to be) a pure-functional transform language that operates on URL-space".

Apart from that, we put out some new stuff on CPAN:

  • Catalyst::Plugin::Static 0.07 - updated tests for 5.0
  • HTML::Prototype 1.11 - fixed minor bug bug
  • Catalyst 5.01 - See release announcement.
  • Catalyst-Plugin-XMLRPC 0.1 - This one is pretty sweet, see below for more info from the horse's mouth, so to say.
  • Catalyst-Plugin-Text 0.1 - Simple glue for Text::Textile
  • Test-WWW-Mechanize::Catalyst 0.39 - Updated for Cat5

Some words about CP-XMLRPC from the author:

03:42 @sri     # include it in plugin list
03:42 @sri     use Catalyst qw/XMLRPC/;
03:42 @sri     # Public action to redispatch
03:42 @sri     sub entrypoint : Global {
03:43 @sri         my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
03:43 @sri         $c->xmlrpc;
03:43 @sri     }
03:43 @sri     # Methods with Remote attribute in same class
03:43 @sri     sub echo : Remote {
03:43 @sri         my ( $self, $c, @args ) = @_;
03:43 @sri         return join ' ', @args;
03:43 @sri     }

  • Where is all this action happening? I'm on the mailing list and I don't see it. Was this all on IRC?
    • Yes, this is all in IRC. The purpose of these summaries is so that people not following IRC know what's going on.

      Yes, we should probably post some of these to the -dev list....
