Description : collection of development tools for Catalyst
Catalyst::Devel is a collection of modules that are useful for developing and
testing Catalyst applications, but which are not required to run them. It is
intended to simplify deployment of Catalyst applications; among other things,
it currently includes:
Provides various utilities for creating Catalyst module distributions.
Helper module for bootstrapping a Catalyst application via catalyst.pl.
Utility to restart the server when files have changed
previously, this module was part of libcatalyst-modules-perl, but I
want to move it out of that bundle because it contains many useful
modules even where the rest of the Catalyst modules are not needed. A
bare-bones installation of the Catalyst runtime + Catalyst::Devel
might be sufficient for developers, and it would be useful to
(perhaps) minimize attack surface area in case there are
vulnerabilities in other Catalyst modules.
