# Development
{{toc 2-}}
MojoMojo has been under [web development](http://www.seop.com/web-development/) for a long time. It started its life as a Maypole app, and has since been ported to [Catalyst](http://www.catalystframework.org/). The ORM has also been changed from Class::DBI to {{cpan DBIx::Class}}, which gave the [nested set](http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/hierarchical-data.html) code a fair bit more elegance.
It's still a bit rough in the edges, but it has grown a fairly comprehensive test suite over the years. The controllers and models are fairly easy to follow, and thanks to [TT](http://template-toolkit.org/), the templates are pretty clean too.

## Source Control
MojoMojo is being maintained in a [Git](http://git.or.cz/) repo, currently residing at:
## Contributing
First, make sure you read the [[best_practices|development best practices]].
1. To use github, follow the [first two Github tutorials](http://github.com/guides/home):
* [Configure your name and e-mail](http://github.com/guides/tell-git-your-user-name-and-email-address)
* [Provide your public SSH key](http://github.com/guides/providing-your-ssh-key)
2. Clone the repository using "Your clone URL" (the Public one is read-only):
1. To have your username hyperlinked on the web interface, configure your git e-mail address to match the e-mail address you used to sign up for github.com:
git config --global user.email "user@domain.com"
It's possible that if you add other email addresses via the Account or Profile, those will work too. Note that the matching is done by email address, not by username.
## Dependencies and testing
Mojomojo requires a number of dependencies, among which:
* [Imager](http://search.cpan.org/dist/Imager/), which requires the following libraries to be installed **beforehand**:
* libpng-dev libgif-dev libjpeg-dev. If you installed Imager before these, reinstall it with **cpan** `force install Imager`
