DESCRIPTION

Set up the skeleton of a CGI::Application-based project, including a module, some templates and some automated tests.
By default the skeleton files will come within a shared directory where Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp is stored. See File::ShareDir for more information on how this works.

CONFIGURATION

cgiapp-starter will look for a configuration file before reading its command line parameters. The default location is "$HOME/.module-starter/config" but if the MODULE_STARTER_DIR environment variable is set, cgiapp-starter will look for "config" in that directory.
The configuration file is just a list of names and values, separated by colons. Values that take lists are just space separated. A sample configuration file might read:
 author: Jaldhar H. Vyas
 email: jaldhar@braincells.com
 template_dir: ~/.module-starter/cgiapp/templates
 colors: red green blue
This format may become more elaborate in the future, but a file of this type should remain valid.
