While searching on the internet for popular definitions of a catalyst, I came across “Catalyst – Web Framework”.
Catalyst is an open source web application framework written in Perl, that closely follows the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, and supports a number of experimental web patterns. It’s heavily inspired by such frameworks as Ruby on Rails, Maypole, and Spring.
I found the project interesting because it corners the essence of a software catalyst (in contrast to a chemical catalyst) pretty well and therefore provides me with some good inspiration when I have to explore the future role of Flash Catalyst.
