Activator Development Framework Tutorial


1. When working on a Catalyst web abpp, dev is very different than QA than Production, but most articles, documentation and modules assume everything done from Catalyst 2. There is no better design pattern than MVC for web apps 3. Catalyst is great, Activator tries to fill in some missing parts

Getting Started: Creating a Catalyst/Activator project ^

Databases: ORM or Write SQL? Pagination too! ^

If you want to always write your own SQL (and sometimes you do), Activator::DB is for you.

Logging: put it in the right place ^

Exceptions: handle program errors with destination aware messaging ^

Beyond Catalyst: writing crons and CLI backend apps ^

Email: talk to the rest of the world simply ^

Appendix A: AJAX Framework ^
