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!
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 => ...)

Mojolicious is database agnostic. You are free to choose the way you want to store your data.
- Database support
- MySQL, even non-blocking
- ORMs for Mojolicious, for example ORLite
- CouchDB and Mojo::UserAgent
- Using Redis as a key/value store, both blocking and non-blocking.
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?

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!
