Welcome to the Mojolicious wiki!

These pages contain documentation from users, for users. Become part of the project and contribute new documentation wherever you can. Don't forget to check out the official tutorial and guides if you haven't already - they may answer most of your questions!

Starting point

The best point to start on working with Mojolicious is by reading the official Mojolicious::Lite tutorial. If you are new to Perl, see the introduction of the official Mojolicious documentation.

Screencasts

You should also take a look at the wonderful Mojocasts, which, while dated, still contain a lot of valuable information. Just watch out for a few things that have changed since the screencasts have been produced.

  • $self->render_text(...) has become $self->render(text => ...)
  • the relaxed placeholder /(.foo) is now /#foo
  • the image http://mojolicio.us/mojolicious-black.png has been moved to http://mojolicio.us/mojo/logo-black.png
  • Twitter changed their API
  • $ua->post_form(...) has been replaced with the form generator $ua->post(... => form => ...)
  • app->secret(...) has been replaced with app->secrets([...])

Databases

Mojolicious is database agnostic. You are free to choose the way you want to store your data.

Performance

Mojolicious has a built-in non-blocking I/O web server, supporting multiple event loops. If it appears that your app isn't performing well, it's probably because it's blocking somewhere, and this doesn't scale well -- or at all. For example, a single process daemon that blocks doesn't scale past supporting a single connection and a multi-process preforking server that blocks doesn't scale past n connections. But make your app not block, and a single process daemon will scale to thousands... imagine what a multi-process preforking server will scale to. Are you ready to redesign your app to be scalable?

Miscellaneous

IDE/Editor support

There is documented support for Mojolicious for TextMate, Vim, Sublime Text 2, jEdit, Padre (The Perl IDE), Emacs Web Mode , and Perl::Tidy. And here is a tiny project for extending Exuberant Ctags support for Mojolicious.

Contribution

If you are interested in helping out with the Mojolicious project, please take some time to review the contribution guidelines. You can submit bug reports, patches, and feature requests through the project's GitHub repository. If you are planning to contribute a new feature, it's a good idea to discuss it in the IRC channel before you start coding!
