NAME ^

Catalyst::Manual::Components - Reuseable components for Catalyst applications

DESCRIPTION ^

This section lists the some of the components (and plugins) that are available to extend the runtime functionality of Catalyst. Most components 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This list may well be outdated by the time you read this, and some plugins may be deprecated, or, conversely, may now part of core Catalyst. Be sure to check the Catalyst:: and CatalystX:: namespaces for additional components, 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.

PLUGINS ^

Take care with plugins! In general with a plugin ask "should this be acting globally on my application application?". If not it should be a Controller Role (e.g. see Catalyst::TraitFor::Controller::reCAPTCHA.

Catalyst::Plugin::Account::AutoDiscovery

Provides Account Auto-Discovery for Catalyst.

Catalyst::Plugin::Acme::Scramble

Implements a demonstration showing how easily fluent speakers can read scrambled text if the first and last letters remain constant but the middle . Operates on text/plain and text/html served by your Catalyst application. This should really be a controller role, or even a View these days.

Catalyst::Plugin::Alarm

Catalyst::Plugin::AtomPP

Allows you to dispatch AtomPP methods.

Catalyst::Plugin::AtomServer

A plugin that implements the necessary bits to make it easy to build an Atom API server for any Catalyst-based application.

Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication

An infrastructure plugin for the Catalyst authentication framework. Now the recommended way to do any form of Authentication.

Note that newer versions of the authentication plugin allow multiple realms, so that you can authenticate users in different ways in different parts of your application.

This, however, has involved deprecated all classes in the Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Credential::XXX and Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::XXX namespaces.

These plugins are still usable, but they have mostly been replaced with new modules in the new namespace which will work together.

Available Credential modules:

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::AuthTkt

Allows you to use the Apache::AuthTkt module with Catalyst.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::FBConnect

Allows you to authenticate Facebook users using the FBConnect API.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Flickr

Provides authentication via Flickr, using its API.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::HTTP

Allows you to authenticate users using HTTP Basic or Digest authentication.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::HTTP::Proxy

Allows you to authenticate users against a remote web server offering HTTP authentication.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Kerberos

Allows you to authenticate your users against a Kerberos server.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::OAuth

Allows you to authenticate users using their login on other websites supporting the OAuth protocol.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::OpenID

Allows you to authenticate users using their login on other websites supporting the OpenID protocol.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Password

Takes a username (or userid) and a password, and tries various methods of comparing a password based on what the chosen store's user objects support. Part of the Authentication Framework Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::RPX

Allows you to authenticate users using the RPX protocol.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Remote

Allows you to authenticate users in Catalyst that have already been authenticated by your web server. This is useful for authenticating users with SSL Client certificates, and using NTLM or any other authentication protocol natively supported by your web server.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Testing

Allows you to set the same password for all users, which is useful when you want to test logging in as multiple users or multiple types of user, without having to mock things, or set all users' passwords in your test suite.

Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::Authen::Simple

Allows any of the Authen::Simple family of modules to be used to authenticate users in Catalyst.

Available Store modules:

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBIx::Class

Does authentication and authorization against a DBIx::Class model.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd

Uses Authen::Htpasswd to let your application use .htpasswd files for its authentication storage.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::AuthTkt

This module implements the Catalyst::Authentication API for Apache::AuthTkt.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBI

Allows you to use a plain DBI database connection to identify users.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Htpasswd

Allows you to use an Apache htpasswd type file to authenticate users.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::KiokuDB

Authenticates users using an LDAP server.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal

Lets you create a very quick and dirty user database in your application's config hash. Great for testing or getting up and running quickly.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Null

The Null store is a transparent store where any supplied user data is accepted. This is mainly useful for remotely authenticating credentials (e.g. OpenID) which may not be tied to any local storage.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::RDBO

Allows access to authentication information stored in a database via a Rose::DB::Object class.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Tangram

Allows access to authentication information stored in a database via a Tangram class.

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBIx::Class

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Jifty::DBI

Allows access to authentication information stored in a database via a Jifty::DBI class.

Catalyst::Authentication::User::Hash

An easy authentication user object based on hashes. See Catalyst::Authentication::Store::Minimal for more info.

Catalyst::Plugin::Authorization::ACL

This module provides Access Control List style path protection, with arbitrary rules for Catalyst applications. It operates only on the Catalyst private namespace, at least at the moment.
