     work without commands.

Options (for all commands):
  -h, --help          Get more information on a specific command.
      --home <path>   Path to your applications home directory, defaults to
                      the value of MOJO_HOME or auto detection.
  -m, --mode <name>   Operating mode for your application, defaults to the
                      value of MOJO_MODE/PLACK_ENV or "development".
