[Southampton-pm] The reason my Plack demo failed. :)

Hi Tim,


I spend a lot of my time working on a Catalyst which was originally version 5.8 but is now 5.9. I think that means we’re using Plack under the hood somewhere without realising it.


For that reason I’m interested in learning about Plack and its middleware but I haven’t any plans to do any active investigation at the moment.


All the best.

For those who missed it, last week I gave an impromptu demonstration of Plack - I'm trying to find a good way to migrate ModPerl::Registry scripts over to something "modern".  However, I couldn't get the nice StackTrace middleware to show up when I added "die" into my example.


As a follow-up, I filed this issue on github, and got a very speedy response from the author:




So I was able to produce a customised version of Plack::App::Cascade that does support the StackTrace middleware.  I'm still thinking through all the issues around a full migration path from ModPerl::Registry, however.  Is anyone else out there interested in this stuff?
