Catalyst::Engine::PSGI - PSGI engine for Catalyst


Catalyst 5.9000 or later has a built-in PSGI support and this module is deprecated.


# app.psgi
use strict;
use MyApp;

my $app = sub { MyApp->run(@_) };


Catalyst::Engine::PSGI is a Catalyst Engine that adapts Catalyst into the PSGI gateway protocol.


  • Currently this engine works with Catalyst 5.8 (Catamoose) or newer.
  • Your application is supposed to work with any PSGI servers without any code modifications, but if your application uses $c->res->write to do streaming write, this engine will buffer the ouput until your app finishes.

    To do real streaming with this engine, you should implement an IO::Handle-like object that responds to getline method that returns chunk or undef when done, and set that object to $c->res->body.

    Alternatively, it is possible to set the body to a code reference, which will be used to stream content as documented in the PSGI spec.

  • When your application runs behind the frontend proxy like nginx or lighttpd, this Catalyst engine doesn't automatically recognize the incoming headers like X-Forwarded-For, because respecting these headers by default causes a potential security issue.

    You have to enable Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxy or Plack::Middleware::ForwardedHeaders to automatically promote those forwarded headers into REMOTE_ADDR hence IP address of the request.

    ReverseProxy middleware is pretty simple and has no configuration while ForwardedHeaders allows you to configure which upstream host to trust, etc.
