CatalystX-Crudite is a framework for writing Catalyst-based CMS web applications. It includes out-of-the-box user and role management and many starter templates. It builds upon CatalystX-Resource and CatalystX-SimpleLogin.

In order for crudite_starter to work, you need to install this distribution. The starter templates are stored as per-dist shared files using File::ShareDir, so they can't be found from the uninstalled repository. I hope to improve this in a later version.


The user can specify extra args for web libraries such as specific versions. Example:

        name                     => 'MyApp',
        'CatalystX::Crudite'     => {
            web_library => {
                Bootstrap => { version => '2.3.2' },
        # other standard Catalyst config such as:
        'Plugin::Static::Simple' => {
            include_path => [ __PACKAGE__->path_to(qw(root static)), \&dir2 ],
            ignore_extensions => [qw(tmpl tt tt2 xhtml)]

By default the latest versions of the web libraries - Bootstrap, jQuery, jQueryUI and DataTables - are laoded.
