For those of you who have hacked in other languages, you know how easy it is at time to just display a grid of data (either to the user via the web or with a desktop application). Sadly, there isn't any as cohesive for Perl and Catalyst. And I really need one for the project I have at work. So this next week I am aiming to build one. The underlying tools will be Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API, along with Template::Declare (specifically Catalyst::View::TD), using jquery plugins Collections and JSON-REST for the front end.
