catalyst - Bootstrap a Catalyst application


catalyst.pl [options] application-name

'catalyst.pl' creates a skeleton for a new application, and allows you to upgrade the
skeleton of your old application.

-force don't create a .new file where a file to be created exists
-help display this help and exit
-makefile only update Makefile.PL
-scripts only update helper scripts

application-name must be a valid Perl module name and can include "::",
which will be converted to '-' in the project name.

catalyst.pl My::App
catalyst.pl MyApp

To upgrade your app to a new version of Catalyst:
catalyst.pl -force -scripts MyApp


The "catalyst.pl" script bootstraps a Catalyst application, creating a directory structure
populated with skeleton files.

The application name must be a valid Perl module name. The name of the directory created
is formed from the application name supplied, with double colons replaced with hyphens
(so, for example, the directory for "My::App" is "My-App").

Using the example application name "My::App", the application directory will contain the
following items:

a skeleton README file, which you are encouraged to expand on

a changes file with an initial entry for the creation of the application

Makefile.PL uses the "Module::Install" system for packaging and distribution of the

lib contains the application module ("My/App.pm") and subdirectories for model, view, and
controller components ("My/App/M", "My/App/V", and "My/App/C").

root directory for your web document content. This is left empty.

a directory containing helper scripts:

helper script to generate new component modules

runs the generated application within a Catalyst test server, which can be used
for testing without resorting to a full-blown web server configuration.

runs the generated application as a CGI script

runs the generated application as a FastCGI script

runs an action of the generated application from the command line.

t test directory

The application module generated by the "catalyst.pl" script is functional, although it
reacts to all requests by outputting a friendly welcome screen.


Neither "catalyst.pl" nor the generated helper script will overwrite existing files. In
fact the scripts will generate new versions of any existing files, adding the extension
".new" to the filename. The ".new" file is not created if would be identical to the
existing file.

This means you can re-run the scripts for example to see if newer versions of Catalyst or
its plugins generate different code, or to see how you may have changed the generated code
(although you do of course have all your code in a version control system anyway, don't
you ...).
