A Catalyst extension to replace the development server with Starman.

This module replaces the functionality of Catalyst::Engine::HTTP::Prefork, which is now deprecated.

It provides access to the prefork engine specific options which were previously added by hacking your server script.

Adding this to your application

Just add a server script module to your application which inherits from this package.

Catalyst::ScriptRunner will automatically detect and use it when script/ is started.

For example:

    package MyApp::Script::Server;
    use Moose;
    use namespace::autoclean;

    extends 'CatalystX::Script::Server::Starman';



plackup - can be used to start your application .psgi under Starman
