I recently(-ish) built a small app using Catalyst. I _didn't_ use the
helper scripts to generate code, IIRC, as I'm not a big fan of code
generation. Doing everything "by hand" worked pretty well, and the session
plugins more or less worked, though I think there were some bugs back then
that are now fixed.
I used DBIx::Class for the model as an experiment. I wasn't too thrilled
with it, but if you're already using Class::DBI it should feel pretty
natural. I used Mason for templating, but in more of a pipelined manner,
where the Catalyst controller set up variables for the templates to use. I
liked the controller bits quite a bit.
Overall, I'd probably use Catalyst again, though I might try to figure out
how to get it and Alzabo to play nice with each other, rather than using
Your guide to all that's veg. My book blog
