I just recently started using Catalyst, moving away from
CGI::Application. I've been using C::A for several years and switched
to Catalyst to get some of the built-in features such as login/logout
The biggest hurdle I've faced is the large number of module
dependencies, and it seems like just about every Catalyst addon or
plugin module I start using brings its own set of additional perl module
dependencies. These issues are being addressed by the introduction of
CPAN Tasks that cover the modules needed for a base Catalyst install.
