NAME ^

Catalyst::Manual::Plugins - Catalyst Plugins (and Components)

DESCRIPTION ^

This section lists the some of the plugins and components that are available to extend the runtime functionality of Catalyst. Most plugins are not distributed with Catalyst but should be available from CPAN. They typically require additional modules from CPAN.

This list may well be outdated by the time you read this and some plugins may be deprecated or now part of core Catalyst. Be sure to check the Catalyst::Plugin namespace for additional plugins and consult the mailing list ( http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/wiki/Support ) for advice on the current status or preferred use of your chosen plugin/framework.
