NAME

Mojolicious::Lite - Micro real-time web framework

SYNOPSIS

  # Automatically enables "strict", "warnings", "utf8" and Perl 5.10 features
  use Mojolicious::Lite;

  # Route with placeholder
  get '/:foo' => sub {
    my $c   = shift;
    my $foo = $c->param('foo');
    $c->render(text => "Hello from $foo.");
  };

  # Start the Mojolicious command system
  app->start;

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Lite is a tiny domain specific language built around Mojolicious, made up of only about a dozen Perl functions.

See Mojolicious::Guides::Tutorial for more!

GROWING

While Mojolicious::Guides::Growing will give you a detailed introduction to growing a Mojolicious::Lite prototype into a well-structured Mojolicious application, here we have collected a few snippets that illustrate very well just how similar both of them are.

Routes

The functions "get", "post" and friends all have equivalent methods.

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  get '/foo' => sub {
    my $c = shift;
    $c->render(text => 'Hello World!');
  };

  # Mojolicious
  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;

    my $routes = $self->routes;
    $routes->get('/foo' => sub {
      my $c = shift;
      $c->render(text => 'Hello World!');
    });
  }

Application

The application object you can access with the function "app" is the first argument passed to the startup method.

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  app->max_request_size(16777216);

  # Mojolicious
  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;
    $self->max_request_size(16777216);
  }

Plugins

Instead of the "plugin" function you just use the method "plugin" in Mojolicious.

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'Config';

  # Mojolicious
  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;
    $self->plugin('Config');
  }

Helpers

Similar to plugins, instead of the "helper" function you just use the method "helper" in Mojolicious.

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  helper two => sub {
    my $c = shift;
    return 1 + 1;
  };

  # Mojolicious
  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;
    $self->helper(two => sub {
      my $c = shift;
      return 1 + 1;
    });
  }

Under

Instead of sequential function calls, we can use methods to build a tree with nested routes, that much better illustrates how routes work internally.

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  under '/foo';
  get '/bar' => sub {...};

  # Mojolicious
  sub startup {
    my $self = shift;

    my $routes = $self->routes;
    my $foo = $routes->under('/foo');
    $foo->get('/bar' => sub {...});
  }

FUNCTIONS

Mojolicious::Lite implements the following functions, which are automatically exported.

any

  my $route = any '/:foo' => sub {...};
  my $route = any '/:foo' => sub {...} => 'name';
  my $route = any '/:foo' => {foo => 'bar'} => sub {...};
  my $route = any '/:foo' => [foo => qr/\w+/] => sub {...};
  my $route = any ['GET', 'POST'] => '/:foo' => sub {...};
  my $route = any ['GET', 'POST'] => '/:foo' => [foo => qr/\w+/] => sub {...};
  my $route = any
    ['GET', 'POST'] => '/:foo' => (agent => qr/Firefox/) => sub {...};

Generate route with "any" in Mojolicious::Routes::Route, matching any of the listed HTTP request methods or all. See Mojolicious::Guides::Tutorial and Mojolicious::Guides::Routing for more information.

app

  my $app = app;

Returns the Mojolicious::Lite application object, which is a subclass of Mojolicious.

  # Use all the available attributes and methods
  app->log->level('error');
  app->defaults(foo => 'bar');
