FAQ
I'm focusing on form validation issues at the moment, particularly text input for stories, articles. I'd like to ask for advice on handling user input. I know, for example, it is unwise to trust user input -- but what are recommended modules/plugins/etc for securing my Catalyst app?

    Hi Dennis,

    My personal favorite is using Data::FormValidator, which is very
    robust and full featured. A simpler alternative is
    FormValidator::Simple.

    If you want to actually tie something into form generation and
    handling, Catalyst::Controller::FormBuilder is the recommended
    package.
