Catalyst developer blogs defunct.

So, the catalyst developer blogs didn't really work out well... It's been a pretty quiet place, to put it nicely. That's why we've decided to replace them with a Plagger based planet aggregator. It'll be up at sometime soon.

As for myself, I've found I need to write on varied subjects, so the confines of random got a little narrow for me. Instead, I've set up a livejournal account instead. To get only relevant stuff, you can check out the Catalyst tag.

Note: Anyone know if livejournal lets you get rss feeds from tags? Haven't found any info on it yet.

Catalyst developer blogs

We're getting pretty close to release quality with Agave, the catalyst blog project, so to give it more testing, we've set up Catalyst developer blogs here. Guess I'll be publishing my occational entries there in the future.

deploying Catalyst with FastCGI on shared hosting

The catalyst advent calendar for day 10 has a pretty neat guide about deploying Catalyst with FastCGI on shared hosting. Matt S. Trout describes in detail how to set up your shell to install local perl modules, as well as configure the web server to dispatch to your fastcgi script in Apache. Check it out:

Praise for Catalyst 5.5

13:27  * merlyn stares at Catalyst, and now wonders why he ignored it before writing CGI::Prototype
13:27 < merlyn> perhaps justfied as "the catalyst of fall 2004 is not the catalyst of today"
13:30 < merlyn> OK.  so now I'm wondering if I can transition my clients to Catalyst from CGI::Prototype without a huge hassle.

Catalyst talk at YAPC::EU

So, at the last minute, there opened up a slot to speak at YAPC::EU in Braga this week, due to a badly timed pregnancy ;-)

Anyways, I was asked to hold a Catalyst talk, and was more than happy to oblige (Even tho I wish I could sleep rather than write slides right now ;-)

You can see the schedule here:

Seen on #catalyst

07:08  bda> Heh. I used to write CGI::App toys. Catalyst was like "Hey, bitch. We do all that annoying shit *for* you."

Praise for Catalyst

This came to the Catalyst list recently:

In a moment of weakness this afternoon I installed Catalyst 5.33 and
started to tinker. Now I understand the excitement surrounding Catalyst.

Having done web development on other platforms and on other tools where
the seperation of code/content/style is well achieved (like
AxKit/Taglibs/XSP/CSS) a serious lightbulb goes off when my
URL/Controller sub (/products/sku123/) doesn't have to be anything
related to my view ( Wow.

I was a little worried at first looking at the amount of directores
there are in the layout of a new Catalyst app, but once you start
cooking, development is a breeze. What do you know, making a web app is
fun again. :-)

Congrats to the Catalyst team!
