Clustericious - A framework for RESTful processing systems.


version 1.00


Generate a new Clustericious application:

 % clustericious generate app MyApp

Generate a new Clustericious application database schema:

 % clustericious generate mbd_app MyApp --schema schema.sql

Basic application layout:

 package MyApp;
 use Mojo::Base qw( Clustericious::App );
 sub startup
   my($self) = @_;
   # just like Mojolicious startup()
 package MyApp::Routes;
 use Clustericious::RouteBuilder;
 # Mojolicious::Lite style routing
 get '/' => sub { shift->render(text => 'welcome to myapp') };

Basic testing for Clustericious application:

 use Test::Clustericious::Cluster;
 use Test::More tests => 4;
 # see Test::Clustericious::Cluster for more details
 # and examples.
 my $cluster = Test::Clustericious::Cluster->new;
 $cluster->create_cluster_ok('MyApp');    # 1
 my $url = $cluster->url;
 my $t   = $cluster->t;   # Test::Mojo object
 $t->get_ok("$url/")                      # 2
   ->status_is(200)                       # 3
   ->content_is('welcome to myapp');      # 4
 @ etc/MyApp.conf
 url: <%= cluster->url %>


Clustericious is a web application framework designed to create HTTP/RESTful web services that operate on a cluster, where each service does one thing and ideally does it well. The design goal is to allow for easy deployment of applications. Clustericious is based on the Mojolicious and borrows some ideas from Mojolicious::Lite (Clustericious::RouteBuilder is based on Mojolicious::Lite routing).

Two examples of Clustericious applications on CPAN are Yars the archive server and PlugAuth the authentication server.


Here are some of the distinctive aspects of Clustericious :


I am ramping up to a release candidate and a final release for 1.00. Specific things that need to be completed for this task include (but are not limited to):

  • documentation tutorial for a non database app

  • documentation tutorial for a Module::Build::Database / Rose::Planter app (replacement for the existing README, which is broken)

  • use SQLite for above instead of Postgres

  • documentation tutorial for migrating SQLite app to Postgres

  • documentation tutorial for clients (Clustericious::Client)

  • remove TEST_HARNESS detection / dependency (see GH#8)


This is a beta release. The API is subject to change without notice.
