  • Moose has a large and constantly growing user base, as well as an expanding developer base. The project has a fantastic ability to incorporate new developers and to execute on a consistent release schedule. More and more important Perl projects are porting their codebase to Moose or incorporating Moose on a case by case basis. More modules on CPAN are choosing to use Moose. All these are positive indicators, I don't see any slowing of the momentum. The only arguments I hear against Moose have nothing to do with whether or not it's an improvement over core Perl OO (It clearly is). Rather, I hear concerns about speed and the size of the dependency. For me, neither are an issue since I've never had trouble getting Moose installed and I am definitely one to complain when something is hard to download from CPAN. Speedwise I can understand why some people writing non persistent applications, such as CGI or commandline stuff, might complain, which is why they can try Mouse (a lighter weight version of Moose which can grow to use Moose should you discover you need the power). For me, I'd rather write an application that can scale in complexity, have the ability to incorporate new developers easily while remaining rooted in software development best practices.
