TypeWeb application framework

Mojolicious is a real-time web application framework, written by Sebastian Riedel, creator of the web application framework Catalyst.[3] Licensed as free software under the Artistic License v 2.0, it is written in the Perl programming language, and is designed for use in both simple and complex web applications, based on Riedel's previous experience developing Catalyst.[4] Documentation for the framework was partly funded by a grant from The Perl Foundation.[5]

As it is written in Perl, Mojolicious can run on any of the many operating systems for which Perl is available, and can be installed directly from CPAN.[6] Prebuilt packages of Mojolicious are also available for NetBSD from pkgsrc[7] and for Microsoft Windows and other operating systems from ActiveState's Perl package manager.[8]


  • Real-time web framework supporting a simplified single file mode through Mojolicious::Lite.[9]
  • Out-of-the-box support for RESTful routes, plugins, Perl-ish templates, session management, signed cookies, testing framework, static file server and full Unicode support.
  • Portable and object oriented Perl API with no requirements besides Perl 5.10.1 (although 5.18+ is recommended, and optional CPAN modules will be used to provide advanced functionality if they are installed).
  • Full stack HTTP and WebSocket.[10][11]Client/server implementation with IPv6, TLS, IDNA, Comet (long polling), chunking and multipart support.
  • Built-in non-blocking I/O web server supporting libevent and hot deployment for embedding.[12]
  • Automatic CGI and PSGI detection.
  • JSON and HTML5/XML parser with CSS3 selector support.[13]
