My background is in data warehousing (18 years or so) and more recently in building web-apps with a reporting flavour. I'm also responsible for OurCarClub, a web-based data management application for Car Clubs. It's built using perl, Catalyst, Template Toolkit, Class::DBI and MySQL, with more than a dash of jQuery.

comment How to handle requests in a small-medium perl project
Personally, I prefer Catalyst, but it does require installing roughly 50% of CPAN. One of the advantages of Mojolicious is that it's pretty much self-contained, and doesn't have dependencies much beyond core perl, if any.

comment Perl Catalyst Catalyst::Controller::REST with HTML
Unless you're doing proper REST actions, I would not be inclined to add Catalyst::Controller::REST to the mix. It's trivial enough to return JSON without it: $c->body(encode_json($c->stash->{foo}));

comment Catalyst reuse app code with multiple sites
As long as you've configured $c->model() in MyApp2.pm, that's what will get used. I would be wary of having the MyApp2.pm main program inherit from the Common.pm equivalent. In fact there shouldn't even be a Common.pm main program. (Using the term 'main program' in the Catalyst sense.)

comment Catalyst reuse app code with multiple sites
If you don't define MyApp2::Controller::Foo at all, then Catalyst is not going to know to include Common::Controller::Foo in the list of supported paths/actions. It's only going to look in /var/myapp2/lib/MyApp/Controller/ for controllers, after all. Any actions you don't define in the local version will be inherited directly from the common version, of course.

comment Catalyst reuse app code with multiple sites
yes, that's pretty much how it works. You can override or extend actions from the common module. I've updated my answer with an example. Glad to be able to help.
