Earlier this year, you might have seen my writeup about how I felt some of the best (best is a relative term) Perl frameworks and modules have very . . . lacking documentation.
Having another potential project coming up, I decided to revisit my old nemesis, and see if anything has changed.
The Documentation, has come a long way in helping people like me who have hardly any experience with the MVC layout. It's appears to have been restructured and ordered in a way that flows better.
In addition the Walkthrough, has almost completely changed since I checked on it last and does an amazing job at explaining each step. While a few steps could have added a couple of addendums (like getting a strange error message if you use sqlite version 2 instead of 3), overall I feel that it's thorough and complete.
Last time I said Catalyst wasn't Fun, Rewarding, or Quick. As I havent scratched the surface yet, I can't say it's been Rewarding or Quick, atleast it has been Fun this time.
