Mojolicious::Guides - Mojolicious guide to the galaxy
We are constantly working on new documentation, follow us on GitHub or join the official IRC channel
irc.perl.org to get all the latest updates.
If you are new to Perl, we recommend Learn Perl in 2 hours 30 minutes for a quick introduction, or the Modern Perl book, freely available in many formats. Both are excellent introductions to the language. For more books and documentation, check out learn.perl.org.
All web development starts with HTML, to learn the basics we recommend the Mozilla Developer Network.
A fast and fun way to get started developing web applications with Mojolicious is the Mojolicious::Lite tutorial. This micro web framework is only a thin wrapper around the normal web framework, so almost everything you learn here also applies to full Mojolicious applications. The simplified notation introduced in the tutorial is commonly used throughout the guides and is therefore considered a prerequisite, you should definitely take a look!
