NAMEcatalyst - Bootstrap a Catalyst application
SYNOPSIScatalyst.pl [options] application-name
'catalyst.pl' creates a skeleton for a new application, and allows you to upgrade the skeleton of your old application.
Options: -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. Examples: catalyst.pl My::App catalyst.pl MyApp To upgrade your app to a new version of Catalyst: catalyst.pl -force -scripts MyApp
DESCRIPTIONThe "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:
The application module generated by the "catalyst.pl" script is functional, although it reacts to all requests by outputting a friendly welcome screen.
NOTENeither "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 ...).
