Movable Type is Perl based and it can be "run" within Catalyst.

drupal and alfresco were both leading candidates after a long and expensive
"outside" evaluation that included commercial cms... drupal won in the end.
I don't think you could go wrong w/ drupal.

I know that this is not a Catalyst question, but I hope to get the opinions
of those that use Catalyst.

I develop web sites for small businesses, and really like using Perl and
Catalyst.  However, there are times when developing a custom CMS is not
really appropriate - usually because it takes too much time (and hence
money) to develop, and because there are lots of ready made systems out
there already that will do the job.

I've started to look into some of these systems, including Drupal and
Bricolage.  For my sins, I have spent a lot of time working with PHP, so
whilst I'd prefer a Perl framework, using a PHP system wouldn't really be a

Drupal is looking quite interesting, and it supports Pg, which is definitely
a bonus.

Bricolage also looks good, but most of the information that I can find about
it is now quite old - although there was a new release in February 2011.
Bricolage is written in Perl and it supports Pg.

Does anyone have any experiences with open source CMS frameworks that they
are able to share?
