  • The fact that it has no dependencies makes it even more compelling.

    Really? You honestly think that a webapp framework should also ship with its own object system, its own cookie parser, its own HTTP server, its own HTTP header system, and to top it off, its own new templating system!

    I look at Mojo and can only think that it represents the height of foolish arrogance, and I for one am repelled by it.

    Catalyst is far from perfect, but at least the Catalyst developers can concentrate on building a web framework

      I think you're missing the target audience for this though. Let's be honest, whether you like the language or not, PHP ate our lunch here. Users can just upload some files in a directory on their web server, and it "just works".

      In an enterprisey environment would I want Catalyst? Sure. But are users with their cheap hosting plans going to be able to install a Catalyst app? Prolly not.
