Bailador is a light-weight route-based web application framework for Perl 6. Talk to the developers at


Once you have Rakudo Star installed open a terminal (or command line on Windows) and type:

$ zef update
$ zef install Bailador

This should download and install Bailador.

You can test your installation, and see what is your Bailador installed version with the following command:

$ bailador version

NB: If you are using Rakudobrew you may need to run the following command to make bailador available in your terminal:

$ rakudobrew rehash


At the command prompt, create a new Bailador application:

$ bailador new App-Name

Then, change directory to App-Name and start the web server:

$ bailador watch bin/app.pl6

That's it! Using a browser, go to http://localhost:3000. Isn't it wonderful?

You can now edit the files and Bailador reloads the application while you're developing.

If you want to learn more about Bailador, please visit our documentation.


For more examples, please see the examples folder.


You can find a list of Bailador resources (articles, posts, talks, books, ...) here.
