  • In the end it is your choice if you want to depend on Moose or not, however as to the question of if Moose is a fad, I can only give you some facts and you can decide for yourself.

    • Moose has been around and actively developed for almost 3 years now (March 15th 2006 was version 0.01), a quick scan of the Changes [perl.org] file will show you that it has been a very active couple of years too.
    • Moose has 4 official core developers (myself, Yuval Kogman, Dave Rolsky and Shawn Moore) and a quick look at the AUTHOR [cpan.org] section of the POD shows that we have a pretty good sized contributor base.
    • The number of modules on CPAN that depend on Moose has been steadily growing and is right now up to 325 modules [perl.org].
    • The #moose@irc.perl.org channel has is very active and has over 100 people in it at any given time.
    • The mailing list is less active, but is growing (about 413 messages so far).
    • ... and lastly, it is currently being used by a whole bunch of people/companies in production for real world applications. And I think it is safe to say that those people all now have an vested interest in seeing Moose stick around.
